Graduate Engineer - Machine Learning

  • Arm
  • Cambridge, UK
Permanent Data Analytics

Job Description

This role presents a fantastic opportunity to move into Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, key technologies for the future of computing. Working on the cutting edge of Arm IP, you will be creating technology that powers the next generation of mobile apps, portable devices, home automation, smart cities, self-driving cars, and much more.

About the role

Arm is entering a new growth phase to develop innovative technologies and products for existing and new markets. To do this we need talented and motivated people to join our global team. At Arm you will work with the world’s best companies as they build sector-leading products from our designs. You’ll share ideas with and learn new skills from the best engineers in the world. We work in small teams, so your contributions will make a difference. This role offers you the opportunity to lead, challenge the status quo and ultimately change the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

What will I be accountable for?

If you join the ML platform software team, you could be designing, implementing and testing new software libraries for Arm CPUs and GPUs. These development tasks span the whole lifecycle; feature analysis, task breakdown, system design and imple­mentation. Alternatively, as part of an ML product team, you could be building the software driver for a new Arm neural network accelerator. Or investigating and reporting on trends in computer vision or audio processing, then using this data to project performance of future hardware designs.

As a hardware engineer, you'll be part of a growing and highly talented design team focusing on our Machine Learning and Neural Network IP. Working closely with colleagues from other international design centres, you will support the design and verification of Arm’s next generation IP, utilizing the latest methodologies and technology.

More than anything else, you must have a willingness to absorb as much as possible about this new frontier. Given the impact and reach of this field, you’ll be encouraged to share this knowledge with other engineers across the company. This is centred around promoting and demonstrating the Arm core beliefs and behaviours.
