As the industry's leading supplier of microprocessor technology, Arm provides efficient, low-power chip intelligence making affordable, easy-to-use electronic innovations come to life. Arm engineers design and develop CPUs, graphics processors, complex system IP, supporting software development tools, and physical libraries.
We are seeking highly motivated interns to join the Architecture Research team to work on a variety of cutting-edge research topics.
We offer internships across the computer architecture stack – from analysis and categorization of new/novel applications; through design of efficient instruction set and micro-architecture for handling those applications; down to optimizations or radical alterations to the underlying micro-architecture of fundamental compute elements (CPU, caches, predictive structures, accelerators and so on).
Exceptional candidates can experience first-hand how Arm shapes an ecosystem of more than one thousand partners that ship over 10 billion leading-edge Arm-powered processors each year.
Please provide a cover letter with your application.
