Hardware at Arm
You know us. With 125 Arm-powered products shipped every second, we'll be in a over a trillion smart devices by 2035. Your smartphone, award-winning VR gaming, the world's fastest supercomputer – our engineers are designing the advanced core processors leading the race towards a connected, autonomous, hyper-performance future.
So, we promise you endless opportunities to experiment and go even further in hardware. From advanced core implementation to full custom physical IPs, here you'll have our backing to push limits in vital areas such as memory, IO and logic.
One benefit we're really proud of is FlexPot; a sum of money on top of your salary (which is the same value regardless of your seniority) which you can use for charitable giving, development or your personal wellbeing. Ready to start that French language course you've always wanted to do? Or are you a keen gym-goer and want to use it for a membership? There's lots different of ways to enjoy your Flexpot.
We'll always encourage you to take plenty of annual leave, so you stay fresh and inspired. But you know what really does it? When we encourage you to take an extended, paid 4 weeks' sabbatical after 4 years of service. You could even combine your FlexPot allowance with your sabbatical and volunteer overseas!
You're a human being, not a resource. And so it's important to us that we're there for you at significant points in your life. That's why we offer flexible progressive leave. Whether you're having kids, acting as a primary care giver or have lost a loved one, you'll be able to put your family first without worrying about your career.
We create a safe space for you to look after your mental and physical health, with support ranging from medical insurance to the workplace mental health platform Unmind. Alongside a growing number of onsite gyms, yoga, cycling and running clubs. All of which comes with a flexible working policy to ensure you can live life and be your brilliant self.
Are you passionate about physical implementation of Machine Learning processors? Working on the cutting edge of Arm IP, you build technology that powers the next generation of mobile apps, portable devices, home automation, smart cities, self-driving cars, and much more!
At Arm, physical implementation is a crucial and integral part of the hardware development. In this role you will influence the RTL design and deploy the latest implementation techniques. You will have the opportunity to drive EDA vendors on leading-edge processes whilst pushing the boundaries of power efficiency and influencing physical library development.
As a physical implementation engineer you'll be part of a growing and highly skilled team focusing on our ML and Neural Network IP. You will be working on implementation activities throughout all stages of the project. You will both help to specify the implementation tasks for the project as well as to perform the actual implementation work including synthesis, place & route and signoff using standard cell methodology. The expectation is that you, as a senior member of the team will take the lead on larger work-packages and will be able to drive methodology threads in Arm wide forums.
