We are looking for an enthusiastic engineer to join Arm, and help shape the future of technology and collaborating in the development of next-generation CPU that fuel billions of devices world-wide.

Arm’s Sophia Antipolis design centre is located in one of the most beautiful parts of France, at the heart of Europe’s largest and most dynamic technology park. Surrounded by mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, this exceptional design centre has delivered leading products from Arm’s Cortex (TM) processor family.

There is a design role within the Sophia Antipolis CPU team, which is focused on mainstream processors ranging from high-end cores to micro-controllers.

These components are used extensively in consumer devices such as mobile phones and tablets as well as in numerous other electronic products from sensors to servers.

Working in the CPU Group, you will be creative, innovative and enthusiastic about new technologies. Our engineers create products providing world-class performance and low power.

You’ll immediately start working on real project tasks with help and guidance of experienced engineers. Through teamwork, training and dedication to personal development, our goal is that every engineer quickly learns about different aspects of developing highly-complex designs, starts contributing to different project tasks and ultimately develops into an expert in the field.

Would you like to work in a multi-site and multi-cultural environment?

What would be your key responsibilities?

  • You will create the specifications for the next generation of Arm’s CPU products, analyse the trade-offs between different options via modelling or RTL.
