    Job Description

    We are looking for someone to join our team to investigate existing and new features of 3D graphics APIs like Vulkan and DirectX and how these apply to current and future Mali GPUs and Arm-based systems.

    You will approach this from a use-case and performance perspective, and work closely with software and hardware architects, driver development teams, and commercial teams to identify existing challenges and future opportunities.

    Arm's Central Technology organisation is responsible for early development selection of technology to keep Arm's products redefining the state-of-the-art. Are you passionate about the future of graphics technology? If yes, join us and help drive the technology forward!

    What you will be accountable for

    • Investigating and evaluating features of and improvements to 3D graphics APIs, including implications on hardware design and software architecture. This may include prototyping of such changes, proposing changes to the Mali GPU architecture, and drafting new API extensions.
    • Providing guidance on GPU hardware and driver roadmaps.
    • Explaining new technology and its implications to internal and external partners.

    Job Requirements

    • Hands-on experience using one more of the OpenGL ES, Vulkan, DirectX, or Metal APIs. You know these well enough to be annoyed at their limitations!
    • A deep understanding of GPU architectures and the workloads GPUs are likely to see, and thus what characteristics are important, in different scenarios such as gaming, XR, and machine learning.
    • You combine the above with a good C++ development experience and know your way around tools, such as version control systems.
    • You are self-motivated and ambitious, and have the ability to work as part of a team and to network across teams.
