Arm has a range of vacancies for enthusiastic graduates with a passion for embedded software development, Open Source software and CPU Architecture.
If you have a software background and a willingness to learn, you will be considered for work in one of these areas :
Software design and implementation of features for our reference Mali Graphics processors (enabling our next generation Mali mobile IPs for APIs such as GLES, Vulkan, OpenCL, EGL) on Android
Compiler development using LLVM for GPGPU kernels
Compiler development including open source compilation technology for e.g. Apache TVM targeting Arm's CPUs, GPUs and NPUs.
Improvements and performance optimisations for Arm Compute Library and ArmNN.
Model Conditioning and sophisticated machine language framework optimisations in frameworks like Tensorflow and Pytorch.
Performance analysis of NPUs, GPUs or CPUs
Arm Secure Firmware development
Software stack development to enable Arm IP.
Operating system development (Linux, Zephyr, FreeRTOS, mbedOS, etc)
Verification of Arm CPUs using full-stack operating system software
Development of Software Tools for CPU Verification using Random Instruction Generation
Software optimisation (JIT compilers, Android, ChromeOS, )
Build environments & Automation tooling
If you have an interest in CPU, GPU or NPU architecture and you are passionate about software, whether it’s kernel, driver, application or tools development;
If you’d like to know more about how hardware and software interact, then this is an outstanding opportunity for you!
What will I be accountable for?
As a Graduate, you will be placed in a development team at Arm’s offices in Cambridge, UK where you will have a dedicated mentor, and be able to get to grips with the problems ranging across many software areas.
You will work across all aspects of the software lifecycle whilst being supported by and learning from the rest of the team.
Whilst a lot of our work does involve Open Source software, many tasks require working with development platforms, or simulated hardware environments where features are being developed and tested before the physical devices have been built, so the problems you will be encouraged to understand and pursue are ones that are yet unknown to the general community.
Currently enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s program, on track to earn a degree in computer science, or a related field
Essential Skills & Qualities
A real passion for computing that goes beyond your studies
A creative and structured approach to problem-solving
Proficient knowledge of one of C / C++. Candidates with proficiency in Python will be considered for roles in our Machine Learning Group.

Desirable Skills and Qualities
A wide range of roles is available. Depending on the area you choose to pursue, an interest in any of the following would support your application :
3D or GPGPU APIs
Knowledge of a leading RISC based computer architecture, ideally Arm
Evidence of Open Source project interaction or contribution (patches, bug reports, )
Operating system kernel or device drivers
Knowledge of low-level assembler programming
Compilation technology, JIT (Just In Time) compilers
Machine language frameworks like Tensorflow, PyTorch or Apache MXNet.
Android, ChromeOS, RedHat, Debian internals / middleware development
Linux development or validation
Domain specific and novel compiler frameworks like MLIR, Glow, Spiral, Halide, Tiramisu or Apache TVM.
Zephyr, FreeRTOS, other RTOS development or validation
Low level device driver development and integration experience
Understanding of CPU architecture and micro-architecture features (such as caches, MMU, SMP, coherency, CPU pipelines)
Familiarity with embedded power management techniques or security technologies
An understanding of radio protocol standards such as Bluetooth and / or Wireless LAN
Hands on experience with hardware and software debuggers
