Embedded Software Interns Jobs Vacancy at Arm Cambridge Jobs Details:
We are looking for highly motivated software enthusiasts to join Arm’s embedded software teams. The positions are in various teams working on projects across the software stack – firmware, operating systems, device drivers, JIT compilers and Runtimes, middleware, etc.
If you’re interested in either of:
- Developing high quality, high performance software for Arm’s advanced architectures, CPUs, system IP, and integrated sub-systems.
- Digging deeper into the internals of how operating systems work
- How the firmware and OS interact, and the responsibilities of the firmware
- The challenges of bringing up a new development board

Then there is a role for you!
What will I be accountable for?
As an intern, you will work alongside experienced engineers as part of a development team at Arm’s offices in Cambridge, UK. Within the team, you will have a mentor and work on tasks that feed into supporting existing projects as well as exploring and prototyping ideas for the future. You’ll also receive guidance and support from other team members and have the opportunity to work across all aspects of the software life cycle.
Tasks vary by team need and are continuously updated to reflect priorities, interns typically work on investigating the feasibility of ideas, extending specific features, comparative analysis of multiple potential solutions and analysing root causes of reported behaviours. Many tasks require working with development platforms, or simulated hardware environments where features are being developed and tested before the physical devices have been built.
Most of the positions will give you the opportunity to upstream your code into an Open-Source project.
