Description

The Role

As part of Arm’s continued growth, the CPU team are looking to hire dedicated engineers in the Bristol region. Based in an office in Bristol, you will be working on next generation CPU products in close collaboration with the Cambridge team. We are looking for Principal-level engineers to be part of this innovative CPU team and look forward to speaking to you about the wide-ranging opportunities available!

Arm’s verification engineers continuously push the boundaries of what is possible with simulation, formal, and emulation tools to produce industry-leading CPU IP. Does working at the cutting edge of technology in a world-class team sounds like an exciting challenge? If so, then a role as an Arm Verification Engineer is for you!

The CPU team in the UK has produced some of the company’s most successful products with processors designed by this group being shipped in billions of designs in use around the world today, from smartphones and tablets to AI applications, IoT, and automotive systems.

This team has been responsible for developing processors from high-end A-class parts such as the Cortex-A510, one of the first Armv9 processors, to R-class real-time processors such as Cortex-R82, Arm’s most sophisticated processor for safety, and microcontrollers in the M-class series such as the Cortex-M55.

This role will be based in Bristol, UK.

Responsibilities:

Our aim is to add highly skilled Verification Engineers who can contribute and potentially lead all phases of the verification flow. This would include mentoring and coaching of team members and ensuring that expected verification standards are met. The key responsibilities are:

  • Ownership of a specific area of a CPU project ranging from unit-level testbench development through to the overall verification methodology for a CPU project.
  • Responsibility for verification strategies, planning, tracking, and coordination of tasks for you and your team to meet high quality goals at the planned time.
  • Collaboration on verification improvement strategies across the CPU group and the wider Arm verification community.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • Experience in architecting and implementing verification environments for complex RTL designs.
  • Well-versed in the use of hardware verification languages e.g. SystemVerilog or Specman ‘e’.
  • Expertise in end-to-end verification processes, from test plan creation through to verification closure.
  • Ability to quickly understand and apply complex specification detail.
  • Understanding of the fundamentals of computer architecture, with an emphasis on pipelining, exception handling, memory systems.

‘Nice to have’ Skills and Experience:

  • Verification methodologies such as UVM.
  • Practical experience of working on microprocessor designs.
  • In-depth understanding of memory protection, memory translation, vector processing in CPUs, exception and interrupt handling.
  • Understanding of constrained random stimulus, the goals and general usefulness of different types of coverage in hardware, as well as checking methodologies and behavioural functional models.
  • Knowledge of assembly language (preferably Arm), and/or C/C++
  • In-depth technical reviewing of others’ work.

Equal Opportunities at Arm

Arm is an equal-opportunity employer, committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal opportunities are available to all applicants and colleagues. We are a diverse organization of dedicated and innovative individuals and don’t discriminate on the basis of any characteristic.

Hybrid Working at Arm

Arm’s hybrid approach to working is centred around flexibility, where we split our time between the office and other locations to get our work done. We empower groups/teams to determine their hybrid working pattern, with an expected minimum attendance in the office of 20% per month, depending on the work, level of experience and team’s needs. In some cases, the flexibility we can offer is limited by local legal, regulatory, tax, or other considerations, and where this is the case, we will collaborate with you to find the best solution.
