ARM Ltd, Cambridge
The Media Processing Division (MPD) in ARM has the mission to be at the forefront of advanced multimedia IP products for the consumer, wireless and automotive infotainment markets. The Mali range of GPUs (Graphics Processors) delivers an advanced architecture for hardware acceleration of graphics, specifically tuned for low energy consumption and high performance. Combined with graphics software products, MPD provides a unified and scalable graphics solution that will continue to address our customer needs into the future.
Considerable success to date, combined with continuing strong customer interest and market opportunity, requires the accelerated development of our Mali GPU product family. To enable this increased development capability and strengthen the Division’s engineering team to deliver and expanded product portfolio we are building a new hardware development team in Cambridge, and are looking for a Senior Design Engineer to be a key member of this team.
Hardware engineers within MPD have responsibilities that cover all areas of the design and verification process: working closely with customers, architectural design, implementation, writing specifications, design and simulation, verification of functionality, generating deliverables and maintenance of designs.
Senior engineers are expected to make a major contribution to any project that they work on and should provide a mentoring role model to the more junior engineers working within the project. A senior engineer would be expected to be capable of technically leading a small to medium sized project, taking full responsibility for the specification and performance of the design and, together with the project manager, being responsible for timely delivery.
