COMPANY: ARM

Join our team and test the compilers and tools that build the code in the world's embedded devices! We are looking for an experienced test engineer with an interest in low-level software.

Our partners rely on our tools to support their future successes across many markets, including automotive, medical, storage and networking.

Collaborating with your colleagues, your focus will be on implementing additional testing of our toolchain products, including the compilers, linkers and libraries. Supporting the wider development team is also a vital part of the role, encouraging great testing practices at every stage of the lifecycle.

At Arm, we are guided by our core beliefs that reflect our rare culture and guide our decisions, defining how we work together to defy ordinary and shape extraordinary:

We not I

Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive.

No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective.

Information is crucial, share it.

Realise that we win when we collaborate - and that everyone misses out when we don't.

Passion for progress

Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections.

Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it.

Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow.

The essence of progress is that it can't stop. Grow with it and own your own progress.

Be your brilliant self

Be quirky not egocentric.

Recognise the power in saying 'I don't know'.

Make trust our default position.

Hold strong opinions lightly.
