Fourteen Years and Counting: Deepali's Experience at Arm Trondheim

How long have you been working with Arm?

I've been with Arm for around 14 years now, currently working in the Performance Analysis Team (PPA). My focus is on competitive analysis to compare our products' performance, power and area to that of competition. Over the years, my role has evolved, and I've been involved in various teams, from system testing to software and now PPA.

My journey at Arm began as an applications engineer, primarily working on system testing. Over the years, I transitioned through different teams, ultimately landing in PPA. The past few years have seen me taking on responsibilities related to competitive analysis and identifying areas for improvement in our products.

In 2014, I left Arm and began exploring opportunities elsewhere. However, I returned after a year, drawn back by the familiarity and flexibility Arm offered. The company's close-knit community and the possibility to explore various roles within made it feel like coming back home.

Can you tell us a bit about the evolution of collaboration and culture at Arm Trondheim?

When I joined Arm Trondheim office, we had about 25 people. With continuous hiring, the diversity of talent has grown, and the collaborative culture remains strong. Discussions and knowledge sharing, even during casual breaks, contribute to the vibrant atmosphere.

Diversity is a standout feature, with people from various backgrounds and cultures contributing to a rich, international environment. Currently, we have over 26 nationalities, fostering a unique learning experience and breaking stereotypes. Everyday is an exciting day at work, with opportunities to learn new things, as I am surrounded by so many highly skilled and talented colleagues.

Arm is open when it comes to opportunities to learn. If we want to explore something, Arm provides the correct tools to be innovative. Also, when I am ready to take more responsibilities, support is provided that allows me to move up to the next level. 

What do you think of Arm’s hybrid working model?

The hybrid model, is crucial for maintaining social interactions and a collaborative atmosphere. While some engineers may prefer working alone, this approach ensures the flow of ideas and communication. Personally, I enjoy the flexibility it offers for a balanced work-life schedule.

How would you describe your overall experience at Arm?

Arm feels like a family to me, offering flexibility and diverse opportunities. The collaborative culture, coupled with the company's ability to adapt to changing circumstances, makes it a unique and enjoyable workplace. The "we, not I" attitude is evident, fostering an environment where knowledge sharing and collaboration thrive.
