    Job Description

    We are hiring an experienced Project Manager to work closely with the engineering teams to ensure good quality, on-spec, and on-time delivery of CE Central Technology projects. The specific responsibilities include project definition, planning, scheduling and execution against committed timelines.

    Effective project management is central to successful delivery within the Arm CE Central Technology group. Our team of project managers have a wide range of backgrounds and they play a leading role in our multi-disciplinary group, taking accountability for ensuring delivery of high-quality products from conception through to release. This is achieved by collaborating closely with engineering and product management and by working with and supporting the other project managers in the team.

    As a Project Manager within the CE Central Technology Operations team, you will play a key role in running multidisciplinary CT projects. This fast-paced, safety critical and dynamic role lies within the heart of our rapidly expanding diverse team and business. You will have a wonderful opportunity to become part of the team that lies at the very core of Arm. The CE Central Technology team is responsible for delivering product technology leadership. This consists of working with the LoB's, partners, CE engineering teams and RSH/ATG to identify and develop a sustainable pipeline of innovative technology. Arm CE is organised as a matrix based structure, which means that each engineer reports to an engineering line manager, who will assign people to your a project. Experience shows that this can initially be quite daunting for some people who come from companies where project teams report directly to the Project Manager. However, Arm’s functional organisation approach has shown to be deeply effective at growing strong project management leaders such as yourself, whilst also retaining high-quality engineers who are able to progress their technical careers within a stable and nurturing team environment. As a member of CE Central Technology, you will belong to a multilingual, culturally diverse team of around 10 like-minded project managers who are located within different Arm sites around the world. This provides you with a great opportunity for occasional international travel as the need arises.

    • You will help to review the project requirements in collaboration with the Product Managers and engineering teams
    • You will set meaningful and achievable objectives that are individually suited to the career dreams of each engineer assigned to your project

    • You will monitor and control project work within a change control environment
