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.

HPC/ML SoC Performance Architect:


AMD is looking for an outstanding technical contributor to help optimize performance of AMD-based next-generation GPU accelerators for HPC and Machine Learning. As a passionate and dedicated Server GPU Performance Architect in the  SOC Architecture Team, you will optimize SOC performance by identifying opportunities across all parts of system architecture, spanning the application and related frameworks, driver, GPU core, memory & I/O subsystems.  You will develop and use performance models for micro-architecture and system-level trade-offs, collect and analyze performance profiling data and traces to isolate performance bottlenecks, and share the insights to help drive features into the next generation of server GPUs and software stack components. The ideal candidate is expected to be well informed on latest trends in GPU accelerated HPC and ML, and be able to quickly ascertain, in a data-driven manner, how next generation server GPUs and platforms should be engineered to support those needs


Key Responsibilities:


  • Establishes and maintains AMD's technological leadership position
  • Deals with problems requiring cutting edge approaches
  • Makes technical decisions that have a significant impact on product families, go to market strategies and customer satisfaction
  • Has technical time horizon of generally 6 to 18 months.
  • Accountability on project execution with influence on project/product time-to-market schedules.
  • Work closely with other team members to understand design architecture and to propose solutions to improve/enhance performance with given SoC/IP and markets.
  • Architectural modeling, performance triage, deeper analysis, identifying bottlenecks working with architects and proposing solutions for performance improvement.
  • Developing tools and methodology for performance modeling, workloads analysis.
  • Proposing, communicating and implementing solutions to issues.
  • Participate in collaborative development and workload performance optimization with AMD’s partners/customers.

Position Requirements:


  • Exceptional foundation in systems architecture, cutting across CPU or GPU, memory, storage and I/O subsystems
  • Experience in developing Performance Modeling and Simulation Tools for CPUs, GPUs or SoC components
  • Proficient in Unix, C++, and Scripting languages such as Python
  • Strong Software Engineering skills, and experience working with Version-controlled software systems in a co-operative environment
  • Experience analyzing CPU, GPU or System-level Micro-Architectural features to identify performance bottlenecks within different workloads
  • Experience with Performance monitoring tools such as Hardware performance counters and Visualization tools
  • Exposure to GPU accelerator performance benchmarks and codes are a plus (HPL, STREAM, etc)
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal, written, and presentation)
  • > 2 years relevant industry or academic research experience


Education Requirements:

Master’s degree required, PhD preferred, emphasis in Electrical or Computer Engineering, Computer Architecture, or Computer Science with SoC/IP performance studies.
