    Job Description

    About this role

    If you are a technical lead with engineering expertise in CPU microarchitecture, performance-model development, performance analysis, or workload analysis, we would like to talk with you about joining Arm’s highly successful CPU performance architecture team based in Austin.  Our team plays a major role in crafting our next-generation Cortex-A class CPU designs and in enabling Arm partners to use our designs in world-class products. As a senior member of this expert team, you will own substantial and challenging performance projects

    What types of projects will you accomplish?
    • Collaborate with other members of the design team - primarily in Austin - to help design our next-generation CPU microarchitecture
    • Lend your expertise across all Performance sub-disciplines: microarchitecture and performance model development, microarchitectural performance analysis, RTL/performance-model correlation, workload analysis, and workload development
    • Engage with key partners at an engineering level to understand their future performance requirements, performance sensitivities, and workload expectations
    • Help develop the team and be a mentor to engineers
    • Interact with customers and other third parties to successfully communicate complex technical ideas, and participate in internal and customer meetings

    Job Requirements

    What skills, experience and qualifications do you need?

    • Bachelors or Master’s degree in Computer Science or Electrical/Computer Engineering
    • A minimum of 15 years of experience in microarchitecture-level performance modeling, CPU or system microarchitecture development, or workload/microarchitecture performance analysis (you don't need specific Arm-architecture expertise)
    • An authority with microarchitecture at the level of CPU, system, and SoC

    What would give you an edge?

    We would like to talk with you, if:

    • You have a proven track record in microarchitectural innovation – proposing new ideas, studying them in cycle-accurate simulators, and estimating impact on power & area
    • You have passion for continuing to grow your expertise in CPU microarchitecture including both familiarity with and a curiosity about cycle-accurate simulators, functional simulators, workload analysis, bring-up tools, and more
    • You love advanced software engineering such as design patterns, profiling, and programming in multiple languages
    • You strive to achieve wining solutions and demonstrate enthusiasm, drive and diligence especially with your team and customers
    • You build positive relationships which are built upon mutual trust, open communication and sharing of information and success.
    • You have a drive for continuous improvement through spotting opportunities and seeking the views of others
    • You listen to different perspectives, evaluate, persuade and carefully shape your work to deliver impactful results
