Hi all,

You might noticed that GC commits rate is quite low this year at least. The reason is I'm busy with other projects at this moment. I still could review the incoming patches though.

Meanwhile, there's an opportunity for a volunteer on the ML to work on GC and libatomic_ops improvement (committing back to Open Source) on a paid full-time basis. The requirements are: proficiency in memory management, virtual machines and multithreading; English at intermediate level; wish to relocate to Moscow for 1.5 year at least. Scientific background is a plus. Paid relocation and competitive salary is offered (hope not less your current payment).

Not sure I could find someone this way - just a try...

At this project stage, it is supposed that one engineer would be allocated to BDWGC speed (and GC delay) improvement (committing back to Open source) for the whole year. In short, currently the company is going to hire several engineers for the project (to work full-time at Moscow office). Intermediate level of English is required. Absence of right to work in Russia is not a problem to start working (the company does the necessary work to solve the problem in 2 months typically). The salary is competitive to Russia (or exUSSR) region (it is assumed that the candidate is willing to move to Moscow for permanent work not to be considered as a long-term trip).
> Formal engineer position: Software Engineer (roughly same as "Senior C/C++ developer").
> Formal requirements: be proficient in theory of algorithms, data structures, compiler technologies, Linux internals, ARM internals; Java is plus; scientific background is a plus.
> The company will hire the required engineers anyway, I've only announced of such a position (taking into account that people subscribed to this ML are in general assumed to be familiar with GC). I know the probability of success of my announcement is almost zero but...
