    • Identify bottlenecks in Unity and Unreal and providing solutions and proposals
    • Testing state of the art Unity and Unreal features on existing and new Arm hardware
    • Technical evaluation of proposed software optimization tasks
    • Task estimation, tracking and completion
    • Progress reporting and liaising with other remote teams

    We not I

    • Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive.
    • No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective.
    • Information is crucial, share it.
    • Realise that we win when we collaborate — and that everyone misses out when we don’t.

    Passion for progress

    • Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections.
    • Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it.
    • Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow.
    • The essence of progress is that it can’t stop. Grow with it and own your own progress.

    Be your brilliant self

    • Be quirky not egocentric.
    • Recognise the power in saying ‘I don’t know’.
    • Make trust our default position.
    • Hold strong opinions lightly.

    Arm has a responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK.
