2020 Graduate Project Manager

ARM is looking for a Graduate to join the project management team of the Development Solutions Group. In this interesting and varied role, you would be working on one of a range of software projects and engineering teams, and interacting with many groups, teams and stakeholders across the company in a fast-paced environment.

The Development Solutions Group (DSG) develops and markets integrated software tools to silicon partners and OEM customers. The product portfolio includes ARM DS-5 Development Tools, Fast Models, Cycle Models, Keil MCU tools, Enterprise and HPC Software Development Tools, GNU Tools and the ARM Compiler. These tools support software development for all ARM CPUs both with, and in advance of the availability of, target silicon.

The DSG vision is to help our customers create innovative and energy efficient ARM Powered products, using powerful and easy to use development tools. Our mission is to create or enable tools that improve ARM system performance, productivity or time to market.

Effective project management is central to successful delivery within DSG. Our Project Managers play a leading role in the multi-disciplinary team, and are accountable for ensuring delivery of high quality products from conception through to release. This is achieved through close collaboration with Engineering and Product Management, typically lead and coordinated by the Project Manager. The Project Manager must also coordinate with program managers and other project managers to ensure project and product dependencies are identified and managed effectively

What will I be accountable for?

We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven Graduate candidate who wants to be part of something great. As part of the project management team in the group, you will learn project management through working directly on some of the projects in the group. You will start off with parts of a larger project to manage, under the guidance of a senior project manager, and over time will progress to managing whole projects.

Managing projects in DSG means being responsible for the planning, execution, and delivery of software releases, managing stakeholders, communications, and processes. You will also be a general problem solver for the team – engineers will come to you with problems, and you will need to use all the resources at your disposal to solve them.

This role is a great opportunity to get involved with the organisation of a software product, and will expose you to many aspects of the business of a world class technology company.
