    Job Description

    The Productivity Engineering Group provides methodology, workflows and applications to all engineering product groups across ARM.

    About the team

    You will be working in our Austin Texas office,  within a very dynamic team that develops, deploys and maintains Python 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.

We work within an Agile/Scrum approach, and regularly challenge our processes to avoid frustration and raise overall efficiency.

    The wide use of our tool within Arm makes it a great vector to interact with many hardworking teams and individuals. The variety of cultures, the depth of knowledge and the gently distilled British phlegm makes Arm a working place that may accommodate all your professional endeavours, and maybe more! Given the span of the team and partners locations, you will have the opportunity to travel to other sites during your work.
