Innovative software for every industry with Harrison

Meet Harrison, a Software Engineering Graduate in our Cambridge office.

Studying medical engineering didn’t stop Harrison from applying to Arm. His love of programming and desire to improve in all the areas he was lacking carried him through his interview. And his experience as a graduate software engineer in our Internet-of-Things section began teaching him the rest: “It’s a flexible position because it was important to me and my line manager I get a good taste of everything we’re working on. I’m using C++, I’m using Python… it all depends on the task. If you think we just sell silicon, you’re mistaken. We write the code that enables virtually anything to be produced on silicon.”

Freedom to explore different technologies that influence a wide variety of industries is important to Harrison. It keeps him engaged in the role: “At a start-up, you’re going to be limited to a particular technology. At Arm, I can name teams focused on raising the capabilities of Android devices, automotive products, medical equipment – and that’s just off the top of my head. Given my background as a medical engineer, it’s a source of pride that our innovations will improve hospitals, support doctors and generally enhance the state of healthcare globally.”

“There’s a real sense of collective effort. There isn’t a hierarchy.”

Revolutionary ideas in a lot of industries often begin at Arm. Harrison believes it’s our innovation culture which makes this possible: “There’s a real sense of collective effort. There isn’t this hierarchy. You always have access to senior people and are treated as if you’re on the same level. Some of these people are the smartest in the world, but they’re so friendly and approachable. And because I’m Ugandan originally, it was important I found an understanding employer who would sponsor me for a work visa. Arm didn’t discriminate in the slightest. They’re supportive, and when they say they want us to ‘be our brilliant selves’ at work, they mean it. They want to see the real you and what you’re interested in.”
