Are you an experienced Project Manager looking to make a difference in the emerging space of Internet of Things(IoT)? If so, please read on!
The Internet of Things is the next computer revolution, offering exciting opportunities to transform society and business using internet-connected devices. Arm’s Internet Services Group is creating device software and web services to enable these opportunities to become reality.
Within ISG, the Device Services team are building innovative Mbed products; the next generation of operating systems and tools for building billions of IoT connected devices. Mbed will become a platform for enabling these IoT devices, just as Windows is fundamental to the PC ecosystem, and Android and iOS are to mobile phones.
You may have heard of our established Mbed OS platform, targeted at very low cost Cortex-M microcontroller-based devices. Would you like to help us create a new embedded Linux product to complement Mbed OS, only this time focused on devices containing Arm’s advanced Cortex-A processors?
