Access Softek is a recognized name with an established reputation in the LLVM community.
From early on in LLVM’s origins, we have worked on a number of projects such as a front-end compiler, back-end code generation / optimizations, linkers, code instrumentation, and did so with a focus of targeting different platforms - from well-known platforms to those that are new, quite unique and not yet publicly available.
We "own" and host the LLVM Lab, and orchestrate the continued integration (LLVM buildbot) for all projects under the LLVM umbrella.
We are growing our team, and are looking for experienced Software Engineers to work on the LLVM and Clang based toolchain. Our product is a set of instruments that includes the Clang compiler, a linker, tools, and libraries adapted and optimized to build safe, efficient applications.
