Job Description


ARM designs the technology that is at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and storage devices. ARM improves people’s lives by enabling the intelligence in affordable, easy-to-use electronic products that transform the way we live and work. We work in partnership with a global network of leading technology companies which are using our smart low-power technology. Together we are shaping the future of a better world.

ARM’s CPU group develop high performance CPU cores that lie at the heart of many of today’s digital devices. Customers demand high quality and reliable IP, as the cost of design iterations is extremely high and shorter design cycles means that re-spins can be disastrous for the success of a product. Against this background, ARM has adopted a 'right-first-time' methodology and recognizes the need for dedicated verification engineers to work with the design team. Verification of ARM CPUs is a tough challenge and is often a harder task than design. At ARM several complementary methodologies are used to ensure that no bugs go undetected. ARM CPU Verification Engineers have and develop specialist skills and knowledge and apply both hardware and software skills to the validation task. They work as part of the CPU design team to ensure that all areas of the design are understood and thoroughly validated. This requires an insight both of the 'big picture' at the architectural level and of the detail at the implementation level.
