Reference: 15942
Contact Name: Arm

We are Arm's Central Technology organisation and we are responsible for trail-blazing the future technology which will keep Arm's products redefining the state-of-the-art. We are looking for senior and experienced Computer Vision gurus to jump start the development on a new range of low power, real-time computer vision solutions for applications such as Augment Reality and Autonomous Vehicles. This is a new area of growth for Arm - why not join us now and embrace the opportunity to shape what we do?

What will I be accountable for?

You will work closely with Arm's marketing teams across several lines of business to understand the requirements of these exciting applications. You will provide invaluable advice on prioritising features and guiding product definition towards something valuable and implementable.

As part of the role, you will define and drive investigations into new algorithms and approaches, often drawing upon the help of a small but talented team of researchers. You will need to keep up-to-date with the newest technology trends in the field and apply that knowledge by suggesting improvements to our products, guiding the business towards new opportunities for further growth and helping define our technology strategy.

Once requirements are agreed, you will take responsibility for designing the overall architecture of our products, using your expert judgement to partition functionality appropriately across bespoke new hardware IP, existing hardware IP and embedded software. You will then continue to advise as engineering projects develop and ultimately deliver these new products to customers.

Fundamentally, this role is about translating complex, often contradictory and ambitious customer requirements into concrete hardware and software designs a team of engineers can go and build. You will be separating needs from wants, understand where simplicity is good enough and where complexity is warranted.
