    About the team

    Based in our Sophia office, a very dynamic team that develops deploys and maintains automation flows for Engineering groups located across Europe, US and India. The team is very collaborative, dynamic and friendly. The unnecessary pressure is kept away from the technical staff by proactive line and program managers. Constant commitment to mid-term priority is feedback to the team, while the short-term priority decisions are made by the developers. We work within an Agile/Scrum approach, and regularly challenge our processes to avoid frustration and raise overall efficiency.

    The wide use of our tools within Arm makes it a phenomenal vector to interact with many hardworking teams and skilled individuals. The variety of cultures, the depth of knowledge and the gently distilled British phlegm makes Arm a working place that can accommodate all your professional endeavours, and maybe more!
