What you do at AMD changes everything 
 

At AMD, we push the boundaries of what is possible.  We believe in changing the world for the better by driving innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies – building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data center. 
 

Developing great technology takes more than talent: it takes amazing people who understand collaboration, respect, and who will go the “extra mile” to achieve unthinkable results.  It takes people who have the passion and desire to disrupt the status quo, push boundaries, deliver innovation, and change the world.   If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

 

AMD's strategic focus is on developing one-of-a-kind solutions through its Semi-Custom Business Unit (SCBU) based on the extensive set of intellectual property (IP) amassed across AMD processors, graphics, memory sub system, data fabric, security, artificial intelligence, computer vision, and multimedia. Providing to customers a level of flexibility and differentiation that goes beyond standard products, the business unit takes AMD to a new level of customer-centric design by integrating these building blocks with customer-specific IP to create tailor-made solutions using a flexible System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design methodology.  The business unit features a very talented and driven team of business development, architects, and design engineers who have design wins in all major gaming consoles. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI), the Xbox One S and Xbox One X from Microsoft are some examples of AMD's Semi-Custom solutions.

We are seeking a talented Executive Assistant to join our Semi-Custom Business Unit (SCBU).  SCBU is not bound by convention and doesn’t subscribe to the “one-size-fits-all” thinking.  The team has a unique ability to combine broad technical depth with the ability to develop close relationships with partners in order to find customized solutions. We need an Executive Assistant to work closely with and support the Corporate Vice President and General Manager of SCBU and direct staff in Austin.  The right person will have the opportunity to become a key player in an area that is experiencing significant growth.  This team is looking for someone who is highly motivated, self and fast learner, customer-focused, has a “do whatever it takes” mindset, team player, and can thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.  The Semi-Custom Business Unit (SCBU) has a career making opportunity for any talented and driven individual.
