Working at ARM

Arm 18 Image 2If you own a mobile phone, camera or MP3 player, the chances are that you regularly use an ARM Powered® product. Our technology is at the heart of a wide range of digital products for use at home, work or on the move. Founded in 1990, as Advanced RISC Machines Ltd, ARM began life as a UK-based joint venture between Apple Computer, Acorn Computer Group and VLSI Technology. Apple and VLSI both provided funding, while Acorn supplied the technology. There were 12 founding ARM engineers, who set themselves the bold objective that everyone worldwide should own at least one product based on ARM technology.

Today, ARM is the world’s leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier. Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, ARM has grown rapidly and now has over 2,500 employees across the world. ARM prides itself on being one of the best employers in the UK and globally. The company is building on this reputation by attracting top university talent through a range of schemes that are highly regarded by the industry. ARM has a distinct culture that is based on global collaboration, teamwork and fun. Being such a diverse, dynamic and multinational company, it offers a wide spectrum of career paths and the promise that no two days are ever the same.
