Job Overview:

Are you creative, hardworking, upbeat, and collaborative looking to join a team of engineers that work together on significant projects, or build system IP solutions that will impact how people connect every single day? Well then, we can offer you a phenomenal opportunity, as we are looking for an experienced CPU micro-architect or an expert RTL design engineer. In this opportunity provides you ambitious and exciting responsibilities with forward-thinking colleagues as well as the biggest chance to create an impact on our industry.

Arm’s design center is located in Austin, one of the top tech hubs in the US. Here you will join a small, rare, yet hardworking RTL design team developing the next generation of Arm A-Class microprocessors. This team will enable you to contribute in all aspects of the microprocessor life cycle while meeting the demands of the market.

Based on groundbreaking technologies and methodologies, you will ensure the highest quality of products as you collaborate with other Arm engineering teams to build complete IP solutions. As a CPU Design Engineer, you will own and develop CPU micro-architecture, handle Verilog RTL logic design and debug, as well as work closely with engineers across all platforms to meet all functional requirements, performance, power, and area goals.

Would you like to work in a multi-team, multi-cultural environment? Are you passionate, creative, and collaborative about groundbreaking technologies? If so, we would love to hear from you!

  • You may possibly substitute a demonstrated minimum experience of 9 years along with a Bachelors’ in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering
  • The ability to travel occasionally for training and customer meetings

“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience :

  • Domain expertise in various logic areas of CPU micro-architecture design
  • RTL design for multi-threaded, low power microprocessors
  • Hands-on experience using Verilog or VHDL HDL for design
  • Crafting synthesis targeted to achieve specific power, frequency, and area targets
  • Scripting languages (Python, Perl, etc.)

In Return:

We offer a hybrid approach to home and office working to provide an adaptable experience for all employees. We expect some working time to be spent in office, to promote a strong collaborative environment with good team integration but are accommodating to different home working requirements.
