Job Description

Are you highly inquisitive? Do you have a passion for improving performance? Do you want to play a role in the next generation of Smartphone and Laptop computing?

We are looking for graduate engineers who want to learn more about computer architecture and system level performance analysis.

About the team

We are a team of highly motivated engineers ensuring that Arm maintain its leadership in the mobile computing by helping our partners build competitive devices. Using detailed competitive analysis, rigorous workload characterisation and advanced software modelling, we are successfully influencing Arm engineering teams and its partners.

The engineers within the team have a diverse range of skills and experience allowing us to expertly understand software from userspace to firmware, and device-level hardware through to the detailed microarchitecture.

The team focuses on how a user perceives the performance of a mobile device, in terms of responsiveness, smoothness, energy and thermal efficiency. We then explore how improvements in processor, memory and SoC design can maximise the end user experience.

At Arm you will enjoy working in a highly stimulating collaborative environment. Our team works closely with CPU, GPU and media design teams, as well as the primary mobile OS vendors.

* Simulation of future SoC IP configurations in order to explore full system performance and to help influence partners IP selection.
* Profiling generation-on-generation performance of the leading SoC providers to fully understand the competitiveness of Arm based devices. This includes device benchmarking, research and deep dive analysis into specific emerging technology areas.

As a new member to the engineering team you will contribute to performance investigations focused on real world scenarios. You will help design experiments, develop workloads and learn to produce high quality research which leads to change within Arm and with its partners.

You will have the opportunity to work with the Central Technology and Engineering teams developing Arm processors. This will help you broaden your knowledge of different technologies and build your personal network within Arm.

You will learn to quickly contribute to the team producing research and performance reports which will impact on how Arm designs and evaluates future processor architectures.

Job Requirements

* University degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, although other disciplines will also be considered
