Inspire the Next Generation
What do we mean when we say you have the power to spark the world’s potential at Arm? Well, put it this way: our tiny processors are the driving force behind the biggest names in tech. Not only in Silicon Valley, but in 70% of the technology used by the global population – from your smartphone to the world’s fastest supercomputer.
Imagine how deep and diverse the experiences are here. We trust you to work with our extraordinary partners, innovating and iterating in ways that enable the next generation of their technologies. You can influence the future of everything that makes up a smart home to entire smart cities. We’ve discovered how to give you just the right combination of freedom and support, with world-class mentors on your side, your own development roadmap and your choice of workshops.
Search your pockets and pick up a device that most likely is flat, fits in your palm, and has a shiny glass surface. With the help of this device, you can buy bus tickets, track work-out sessions, watch movies, play a game, or record your next social media dance video post. Arm provides the compute superpowers of the modern-day smartphone. Billions of users benefit from our technology every day, with a performance unheard of only a few years ago!
If you are interested in learning more about how we at Arm design our GPUs, CPUs, AI accelerators and other world-class IP that powers smartphones, self-driving cars, smart-watches, data-centres and just about any piece of electronics in the world, then you should consider joining the team in Trondheim!
In 2006 Arm acquired Falanx, a small Norwegian start-up developing Graphics Processing Units. The team now counts 200 employees from more than 30 different nationalities. We are based in Trondheim, the beautiful technological capitol of Norway. Here the team combines hiking, skiing, and trips on the fjord with developing Mali, the world's most shipped GPU.
