Our team isresponsible for developing high performance compilers and numerical libraries as well as tools to help improve performance of software on these systems. We are looking for highly skilled and motivated software engineers to join our elite team.
You will have opportunities to work on a focused project involving researching, developing and delivering into the high performance ecosystem for the Arm architecture.
You will strive to improve the performance of generated code, develop new features and help expand the use of this technology into new and existing markets. This will require innovation and ground breaking development on compilation tools and libraries based on a range of technologies, both proprietary and open source.
Opportunities exist for you within the following areas:
Development of new compiler and library features and optimisations, including auto-vectorisation, auto-parallelisation and parallel runtimes, especially using Arm’s new Scalable Vector Extensions (SVE).
Optimising numerical routines as part of the Arm Performance Libraries product.
Developing new tools to aide users in optimizing codes on Arm systems to increase performance.
Driving continuous delivery infrastructure and tooling improvements across the project teams.
Working with other divisions in Arm to expand support of the Arm architecture.

Understanding of the purpose and structure of compilers, assemblers and linkers.
Awareness of techniques in compiler optimizations and code generation.
Experience with vector architectures and auto-vecorisation techniques.
Experience with parallel programming and OpenMP.
Experience of maths libraries and other high performance libraries.
Understanding of at least one CPU architecture and instruction set.
Experience of developing, delivering and maintaining production quality software or working on open source projects.
Developing for Unix operating systems, in particular Linux.
Working effectively in extended teams across groups, sites and countries.
Exposure to software continuous delivery environments.
Proficiency in Python or other scripting languages.
