The AdaCore Product Engineering  team is looking for a Release Engineer to assist us in our software release processes.

Everything we do at AdaCore is centered around helping developers build the safest, most secure open-source software. 

For over 25 years, we've worked with global leaders across avionics, aerospace and defense industries, building tools and providing services that ease the complex and difficult process of developing high-integrity software. As the need for truly secure and reliable applications expands into industries such as automotive, medical, energy, and IOT, we’re advancing our time-tested technologies to bring expertise and services to help a whole new generation of developers.

Our 150 experts worldwide in the US (New York), France (Paris, Toulouse, Grenoble and Vannes), the UK, Estonia and Germany all play a role in developing bleeding edge technologies to meet the highest grade of software development.

AdaCore products are released on a time-based cycle, with a preview release in October, a major release in February, and a corrective version in July. GNAT Pro is available on over 60 platforms and supports hundreds of runtime profiles (ranging from Full Ada Support to restricted runtimes suitable for safety-critical development).  On top of that, AdaCore offers a “sustained branch” service giving our customers the confidence that critical issues, such as a code generation problem, can be addressed in their version of the product. AdaCore also performs tool qualification and provides certification material for compiler runtimes.
