You will work closely with a dedicated engineering team to implement novel solutions and help Arm turn these new ideas into products to resolve our customers’ technical challenges.


    Leveraging your experience working with end-users, you will also be responsible for the creation of specialized technical materials such as research papers, whitepapers, case studies, blog posts, videos, etc. You will be expected to contribute to the research activities at conferences and events.


    As a successful “Research Software Engineer”, you will be offered the chance to work on strategic research projects in Europe (namely: EuroEXA and SAGE2), to collaborate with high-profile customers and to influence Arm’s positioning and solutions in one of its fastest growing market.
