Company summary

ARM(TM) technology is at the heart of a computing and connectivity revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate.

Growth markets

Our advanced processor designs have provided the intelligence in 86 billion silicon chips now powering products from smartphones to supercomputers, medical devices to agricultural sensors and base stations to servers.

Company culture

ARM was founded by a dozen engineers working from a converted barn in Cambridge, UK, a quarter of a century ago. By the end of 2015, that team had grown to more than 4,200 people in sites around the world. ARM gives its people the capabilities, processes and infrastructure to enable them to develop and thrive as the business scales and strengthens. At the same time, we seek to nurture a work culture that remains true to our founders' original vision; empowering our engineers to be innovative and drive ARM-based technology into all areas where compute happens, maximising their creative potential and enabling all of our people to be their brilliant selves.

Diversity and social responsibility

Our CR strategy is based on ARM's strategic drivers for long-term growth, and shaped by the issues that matter most to ARM and our stakeholders. For ARM, inclusion and diversity are essential to our drive for innovation. From a company that began with 12 engineers, we've grown to reflect our global reach, with over 60 nationalities working from more than 30 sites worldwide.

This makes us an exceptionally diverse community of dedicated, innovative and talented professionals. With an inclusive and open workplace, we encourage our people to be their brilliant selves and share their ideas - supporting their growth and celebrating their unique contributions. Our focus is not on where people have come from, but on where they are going.

Innovation

We are ranked as one of Forbes' World's Most Innovative Companies, and our advanced processor designs have provided the intelligence in 86 billion silicon chips now powering products from smartphones to supercomputers, medical devices to agricultural sensors and base stations to servers. With thousands of technology partners, including the world's most famous business and consumer brands, we collaborate to drive innovation into all areas compute is possible.
