    Job Description

    We are Arm's Central Technology organisation and we are responsible for trail-blazing the future technology which will keep Arm's products redefining the state-of-the-art. We are looking for senior and experienced Computer Vision gurus to jump start the development on a new range of low power, real-time computer vision solutions for applications such as Augment Reality and Autonomous Vehicles. This is a new area of growth for Arm - why not join us now and embrace the opportunity to shape what we do?

    What will I be accountable for?

    You will work closely with Arm's marketing teams across several lines of business to understand the requirements of these exciting applications. You will provide invaluable advice on prioritising features and guiding product definition towards something valuable and implementable.

    • You will need to keep up-to-date with the newest technology trends and apply that knowledge by suggesting improvements to our products, guiding the business towards new opportunities for further growth and helping define our technology strategy.
    • You will take responsibility for designing the overall architecture of our products, using your expert judgement to partition functionality appropriately across bespoke new hardware IP, existing hardware IP and embedded software.
    • As part of the role, you will define and drive and help investigations into new algorithms and approaches, often drawing upon the help of our imaging research team.

    Fundamentally, this role is about translating complex, often contradictory and ambitious customer requirements into concrete hardware and software designs a team of engineers can go and build. You will be separating needs from wants, understand where simplicity is good enough and where complexity is warranted.

    Job Requirements

    • Significant experience in ASIC RTL design, preferably for microprocessor based systems, processor design (CPU, GPU or ISP) or related IP (interconnect, memory controllers, high-performance peripherals)

    • Deep understanding of timing, area, power and complexity trade-offs for complex data path designs
    • Practiced in all stages of design: concept, specification, implementation and testing, documentation, sign-off and support. Combined with experience of functional modelling at an architecture or micro-architectural level
    • Self-motivated to work both unsupervised and as part of a project team
    • Experience planning and coordinating significant technical investigations from problem statement to conclusions

    Desirable skills & experience

    • Familiar with image processing and computer vision algorithms such as: optical flow, SLAM, visual odometry, image registration, motion compensation, stereo camera depth estimation or similar.
    • Understanding of how modern camera systems work and the challenges of real-time processing. Compute partitioning of applications across heterogeneous systems, including CPU, DSP and other hardware accelerators.
    • Proficiency with additional programming and scripting languages

    At Arm, we are guided by our core beliefs that reflect our rare culture and guide our decisions, defining how we work together to defy ordinary and shape extraordinary:

    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.
