    Job Description

    ARM’s Image Signal Processor (ISP) group provides image processing technology for a range of sectors and use cases, including surveillance cameras, drones and automobiles. Our “intellectual property” in the form of software and hardware designs, which is the culmination of man-decades of research and experimentation in the field of imaging. If you love challenges and opportunities of a fast-paced environment combined with the benefits of working for an established and respected company, then we believe that ARM is place for you

    A phenomenal opportunity to work and get your hand dirty within an exceptional team of software engineers to deliver highly performing GPU models of our world leading image and video processing algorithms. We are looking for someone who is detail-minded, creative-thinker with strong focus of creating something new. You will be working in a small but highly focused group, where you will help design and optimize our next generation image processing blocks and pipelines with improved performance that helps to build up comprehensive design models for algorithms used in ISP solutions for ML. This opportunity requires an Engineer, a good all-rounder, who has already worked in complex software GPU models development using state of the art technologies, methodologies and tools. Your work will involve close interactions with architects and other design, verification and implementation engineers and will be expected to support less experienced engineers.

    What will I be accountable for?

    • You will deliver highly optimized GPU models for various ISP blocks, that are bit exact with the research group prototype or CPU based models.
    • You will have creative freedom in choosing your algorithm wisely and improving certain aspects of algorithm.
    • Performance optimization become your favourite pastime.
    • Analyse and improve efficiency, scalability and stability of various GPU based solutions
    • Participate into continuous integration
    • You will be involved in model integration with other ISP products (tools, drivers).
    • You will work with image quality experts to figure out requirements for processing and creating test cases with real images that would test Image Quality features of the block.
    • Daily usage of software practices that produce maintainable code, including automated testing, continuous integration, code style conformity, and code review.
    • Develop high-quality software designs that allows for both high-performance and maintainable software
    • Identifying and solving software quality issues by debugging different modules of the image processing algorithms
