Introduction The Media Processing Division produces Graphics hardware and software for mobile and embedded devices. Our Mali™ Graphics Processors (GPUs) have an advanced, highly programmable architecture for accelerating 2D and 3D graphics, and are tuned for high performance and low energy consumption. Our OpenGL ES and OpenVG drivers support cutting edge gaming and state of the art user interfaces on operating systems such as Linux, Android, Symbian and Windows CE. To see the current Mali GPUs in action just take a look at the newly launched Mali Developer Center (http://www.malideveloper.com). Our team is already hard at work on the next generation of Mali GPUs. If you are have a passion for graphics technology and want to stamp you mark on future mobile devices, then we want to hear from you! Job Purpose and Accountabilities We are currently expanding the Mali benchmarking team in the Media Processing Division. The benchmarking team acts as an advanced internal user of the graphics products, with a mission to measure the performance of the GPU products in various use cases and to analyze the performance for tuning the products for maximum performance. Working from our Trondheim office you will be part of an international team developing embedded graphics hardware and software for next-generation platforms. We are looking for an experienced SW or HW engineer with a passion for accelerating graphics performance in embedded devices. In this position you will have a system wide perspective to the performance of our GPU products. You will be focusing on the performance measurement and analysis of GPU HW, SW, and entire systems where the GPU is integrated. You will be working closely with the top graphics experts at ARM with a common goal - maximising the performance that our customers can reach with our products. The performance measurement work requires systematic methods to measure the performance in a reliable and reproducible way. The performance analysis work requires an understanding of how the overall performance is established from different parts of the system. It is important to collaborate with the experts in different areas, collect relevant information and apply it to understand the performance limitations in the system and to find methods for optimizing the performance.
