Around the world, millions of developers build software that runs on Arm CPUs, GPUs, AI accelerators and other world-class IP. Whether it’s the mobile phone in your pocket, the cars passing by on the street, or the everyday white goods in your home, chances are it includes an Arm-based processor and has been developed with the software tools that our ecosystem designs! Are you interested in making this development experience better?
To build an understanding of the developers and workflows of the world’s largest software ecosystem, consider a User Experience (UX) internship with Arm in Cambridge. Our team works with Arm’s software product teams to research, design and test solutions to the challenges facing developers. Our role allows us to ask big questions and tackle forward-looking problems, but also focus on detailed UI design and speak with individual developers.
We are looking for people with a strong interest in user experience and a curiosity about the intersection of technology and design. Interns in our team typically work on tasks such as:
- Planning, writing and publishing user surveys, as well as recruiting respondents.
- Analysing quantitative data from analytics systems to spot opportunities.
- Conducting user interviews with support from our senior UX team members.
- Running workshops with our engineering teams to address design challenges and devise solutions to customer problems.
- Sketching and conceptualising user interface designs.
- Using design systems to build consistent, high-quality prototypes.
- Depending on your skills and interests, you could carry out additional research, design or even front-end technical tasks.
Required Skills and Experience:
To be considered, you need to be studying User Experience Design, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), or other relevant subjects such as Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science. Other degree types may be considered with relevant experience, so ask yourself if you:
- Enjoy speaking with people to understand what motivates or hinders their work.
- Can demonstrate design thinking, regardless of your technical artistic or design capabilities.
- Show creativity and ability to communicate ideas. Good interpersonal and teamwork skills.
“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience:
- Understanding of software development.
- Examples of UX projects that you have worked on (design or research).
