If you are a technical lead with engineering expertise in CPU microarchitecture, performance-model development, performance analysis, or workload analysis, we would like to talk with you about joining Arm’s highly successful CPU performance architecture team based in Austin.  Our team plays a major role in crafting our next-generation Cortex-A class CPU designs and in enabling Arm partners to use our designs in world-class products. As a senior member of this expert team, you will own substantial and challenging performance projects

What types of projects will you accomplish?Collaborate with other members of the design team – primarily in Austin – to help design our next-generation CPU microarchitecture
Lend your expertise across all Performance sub-disciplines: microarchitecture and performance model development, microarchitectural performance analysis, RTL/performance-model correlation, workload analysis, and workload development
Engage with key partners at an engineering level to understand their future performance requirements, performance sensitivities, and workload expectations
Help develop the team and be a mentor to engineers
Interact with customers and other third parties to successfully communicate complex technical ideas, and participate in internal and customer meetings

Job Requirements
What skills, experience and qualifications do you need?

Bachelors or Master’s degree in Computer Science or Electrical/Computer Engineering
A minimum of 15 years of experience in microarchitecture-level performance modeling, CPU or system microarchitecture development, or workload/microarchitecture performance analysis (you don’t need specific Arm-architecture expertise)
An authority with microarchitecture at the level of CPU, system, and SoC
What would give you an edge?

We would like to talk with you, if:

You have a proven track record in microarchitectural innovation – proposing new ideas, studying them in cycle-accurate simulators, and estimating impact on power & area
You have passion for continuing to grow your expertise in CPU microarchitecture including both familiarity with and a curiosity about cycle-accurate simulators, functional simulators, workload analysis, bring-up tools, and more
You love advanced software engineering such as design patterns, profiling, and programming in multiple languages
You strive to achieve wining solutions and demonstrate enthusiasm, drive and diligence especially with your team and customers
You build positive relationships which are built upon mutual trust, open communication and sharing of information and success.
You have a drive for continuous improvement through spotting opportunities and seeking the views of others
You listen to different perspectives, evaluate, persuade and carefully shape your work to deliver impactful results
