Graduate Hardware Engineer - Image Signal Processing (ISP)
Joining us as a graduate is the first step in building a fascinating, stimulating, and rewarding technology career. From hardware engineering to microchip design to IP, our graduates are employed across the company in all areas of our global operations.
At Arm, you’ll be able to do great things and use your skills to build next-generation tech that's used all over the world.
Areas offering Hardware Graduate Roles
This graduate opportunity is available in the Central Engineering – Systems - Image Signal Processing team and will be based in the Manchester office.
The ISP group designs image processors and similar technology for markets including automotive, drones, teleconferencing and surveillance. Our intellectual property includes RTL, reference drivers, tools and libraries, enabling our customers to build on our work to create new and innovative products.
Our design engineers need to constantly push the power, performance and area boundaries while generating designs that are robust, maintainable and deliverable to the extraordinary quality that our customers expect. ISP engineers have responsibilities that cover all areas of design and verification: working closely with customers, architectural design and modelling, writing specifications, design and simulation, verification of functionality, generation and maintenance of designs.
In this role you could be:
You will design new hardware modules to efficiently implement image processing algorithms and will improve existing designs to increase performance, quality and power efficiency.
We're looking for individuals who are:
- Eager to find creative solutions to complex technical problems
- Experienced in programming with languages such as C++ or Python, and HW languages (Verilog/SystemVerilog or VHDL)
- Proficient in problem-solving and debugging
- Passionate about image processing
- Knowledgeable about all stages of design: concept, specification, implementation, testing, documentation and support
You need to hold, or be on track to hold a degree by the time the programme starts. This can be a Bachelor, Master or equivalent in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Electronic Engineering, or other relevant subjects such as Physics or Maths.
Qualities that will help your application stand out:
Whilst we will develop and enhance your experience and skills during the program, there are a few things that you need to offer too, such as:
- Have a real passion for computing and image processing that goes beyond your studies
- Interest in computer architecture fundamentals, digital design concepts (such as Power/Performance/Area considerations), and microarchitecture features (such as caches, pipelining, and latency)
- Familiarity with a hardware description language like VHDL or Verilog/SystemVerilog
- An interest in the semiconductor industry
- Ability to work with a high level of independence and as part of a team.
We encourage early applications and review them on a first-come, first-served basis.
Graduate Start Date: September 2024
We aim to complete our recruitment process and communicate application outcomes by February 2024.
In addition to a competitive salary and comprehensive rewards package, you'll also receive the support, autonomy and opportunity to excel your career.
With a mid-year and year-end review, you'll have two windows each year to progress recognising the pace at which you could grow. Attend our 'Grad-teach-Grads' workshops, guest speaker series and various social events to expand your knowledge.
Want to take this a step further? Join our Graduate Committee and hone in on your planning, networking and co-ordination skills.
You'll also be invited to our exclusive Global Graduate Conference (GGC)! A yearly occurrence exclusive for Graduates, allowing you to hear from executive members, inspiring speakers and make connections for life.
With many of our leaders and technical experts having originally joined as a Graduate, will you be next?
