Requirements
  • Proficient in Python programming. (Multiple academic or industry projects completed, 2+ years programming experience.)
  • 2+ years of experience programming in C++; modern C++ experience (e.g. C++17)
  • Experience building, running, and debugging software in both Windows and Linux environments
  • Desire to learn all about compilers and their associated toolchains
  • Having a passion for automation with the ability to discuss the pros and cons of various automation approaches
Responsibilities
  • Crafting and improving the testing tools and frameworks used for ensuring high quality LLVM-based C/C++ compilers. You will be adding to and improving a Python-based test infrastructure and general ecosystem
  • Supervising the state of our test infrastructure - including automated build and regression test results, and reporting problems
  • Analyzing reported issues - including issues reported from PlayStation licensees (typically PlayStation®5 game developers). This involves writing test-cases or test applications (written in C and C++) to verify the reporter's original issue, and confirm proposed software fixes. Analyzing these issues may involve analyzing low-level CPU code generation, and debugging behavior
  • Writing sample applications and/or scripts demonstrating the results from novel and groundbreaking CPU compiler / LLVM research (as targeted to gaming consoles, or for improving game developers' development experience)
  • Developing techniques for runtime benchmarking of real-time code
  • Analyzing low-level runtime performance data captured from a game or application running on PlayStation® hardware, and writing succinct, understandable summaries of performance numbers and behavior observed (so team members understand performance trade-offs)
  • Researching new tools for building and analyzing PlayStation® software
  • Visual Studio
  • PlayStation® software development kits (SDKs)
  • Software automation and continuous integration tools such as Jenkins
  • Source control (e.g. Git) for all systems, including Jenkins Groovy scripts (pipeline as code)
  • Python tools written using Python 3 features such as type hinting
  • Software repositories such as Artifactory
  • Containerization technology such as Docker and Kubernetes
  • Distributed build systems such as SN-DBS
Desired Qualifications
  • Experience with LLVM technology is a strong plus
  • Prior experience with PlayStation® SDK development is helpful
  • Writing unit and integration tests
  • Groovy script coding experience (for Jenkins pipelines)
  • Knowledge of fuzz testing is a plus
  • Windows container experience is another strong plus
  • Familiarity with Unreal Engine or other game engine technology
  • Familiarity with PlayStation products and games
