2017 Graduate Systems Architecture EngineerJob Description
About the role
The Systems Architecture and Technology Group in Cambridge (UK) is responsible for exploring future technologies to design next-generation extensions to the ARM architecture. In this role, you will carry out investigations on a broad range of development platforms, software models, system simulators and production code. This often involves developing hardware/software prototypes and models not yet available to the general public – typically 3-5 years before these systems are released as commercial products by ARM partners.
This is an exciting opportunity for a graduate with a keen interest in hardware design and verification (as well as software), who wants to influence the future of ARM IP and the ARM eco-system. You will work on a range of prototyping activities, formal modelling, simulations and analysis projects, to support systems architects in the definition of next-generation system technologies, including CPU and system architecture specifications and hardware products. You will work with experts in our team and from across ARM, to model and evaluate new technologies. This means your work will influence product roadmaps both within ARM and inside major companies across the ARM ecosystem.
You will be surrounded by world-leading experts and will have the opportunity to work with some of the very best engineers in the industry. If the challenge of working on our cutting-edge technology excites you, and you can meet the requirements of the job description below, we look forward to receiving your application!
