AMD together we advance_








We are looking for a dynamic, energetic Principal Engineer to join our growing team. In this role, the individual will be responsible for creating system architecture specification that includes hardware and software architecture, performing system level design creation, verification and validation on a target Xilinx device. The individual will be involved in system development using video analytics and AMD-Xilinx ML IP library, developing SW framework and application to validate functionality and performance of the intelligent video pipeline on pre-silicon/target silicon device ensuring silicon architecture goals can be met. This role expects the individual to work across cross-functional teams to resolve IP and SW dependencies and minimize schedule risk. This role also requires creating customer facing documentation for the products that will be delivered to the customers. The team is dynamic and fast paced offering each of its members tremendous personal opportunity to grow their knowledge and skills in complex problem solving, product development and system engineering
