Piece Together The World’s Most Powerful Puzzle
This world has a design. It’s infinite yet discoverable. Small yet powerful. Our design engineers must all at once predict it and create it. From implementation of the most advanced CPU, GPU and HPC processors on the planet to dreaming up every eventuality that could put our SoC and system IP to the test, we puzzle over the biggest questions of our time. And microarchitect the future.
Work At The Very Edge
At Arm, you’re in a position to influence 95% of the world’s connected devices and all of their applications. Healthcare, infrastructure, virtual reality… you’ll affect hundreds, if not thousands of industries worldwide, racing towards new milestones in human endeavour.
Learning And Development
Whether you want to learn a new programming language, explore your management potential or witness the latest innovations at industry conferences, we promise you both the freedom and the support to develop when you want it.
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 four-week sabbatical after 4 years of service.
You're a human being, not a resource. So it's important to us that we're there for you at significant points in your life. Whether you're having kids, acting as a primary care giver or have lost a loved one, our flexible progressive leave allows you 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, so you can live life and be your brilliant self.
We are the APD team, part of the Arm Physical Design Group. This diverse, engineering-centric group invents, defines, and develop innovative physical implementation methods for CPU/GPU class designs using optimized physical IP. We pursue next-generation Arm CPUs and GPUs, inventing new concepts that will power billions of devices worldwide. We are looking for another passionate physical implementation engineer to join this great team.
Part of your responsibility will be optimizing Arm core physical implementations, suggesting new implementation techniques, and working with EDA companies and foundries. You will get an outstanding opportunity to develop improved synthesis, place, and efficient route technics, and analyse and detail the results. You will also support key partners to replicate the results. This role will give you the opportunity to explore sophisticated design methods and develop ways to use those technologies’ strengths and mitigate their weaknesses
Are you a forward-thinking, passionate engineer motivated by the challenge of working on this ground-breaking technology? If so, we look forward to learning more about you:
- In this role, you will build implementations of Arm CPU/GPU class designs using PDG’s optimized physical IP
- You will work with multiple EDA vendors to enable innovative Arm features and enable the latest technology nodes
- You will lead technical direction and methodology alignment between team
- You will be interacting with internal and external teams to provide feedback and help them to complete the product tape-out cycle from RTL to GDSII
Required Skills and Experience :
- BE/BTECH/MTECH with proven experience in any domain-related to Hardware engineering Physical Design
- Values communication is a key medium to nurture learning to build trust with others and solves complex problems with dependencies
- Deep understanding of the concepts related to synthesis, place & route, CTS, timing convergence, IR/EM checks and signoff DRC/LVS closure
- High-level know-how related to foundation IPs like standard cells and memories
- Good automation skills in PERL, TCL and EDA tool-specific scripting
“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience :
- Any implementation experience within the field of CPU/GPU IP designs
This position is a rare opportunity for you as a Physical Implementation professional to work with our successful implementation team. You will discover a wide variety of leading-edge foundries and work on different types of Arm IPs.
We are investing heavily in growing our Sophia based hub to own and deliver the next-generation Arm CPUs and GPUs and inventing new concepts to an entirely new market!
Arm is an equal opportunity employer, committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal opportunities are available to all applicants and colleagues. We are a diverse organization of dedicated and innovative individuals, and don’t discriminate on the basis of any characteristic.
Life At Arm
Life in the office doesn't get any better. Especially when those offices are as sleek as ours. And the people are as creative and intuitive. Combine that with our popular ‘we, not I' mindset and you enjoy the kind of teamwork and togetherness rarely found elsewhere. We share so much in common, not least the same passion for progress, but we also welcome each other's diversity. Because, ultimately, we love to inspire and be inspired every day.
