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.

Discover and implement solutions to performance issues through multi-discipline interactions with microprocessor architects, ISA definition owners, software optimizers, compiler team, logic designers, and verification engineers to identify, resolve and document architectural performance issues.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Optimize high-performance System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designs through performance modeling and analysis for SoC designs that include next-generation CPU cores, memory technologies, scalable interconnects, and quality-of-service
  • Propose solutions to improve performance through a strong understanding of design architecture
  • Responsible for micro-benchmarking, workload characterization, competitive analysis, bottleneck identification, and optimization
  • Develop and improve tools and methodology for performance analysis of workloads


Preferred Experience:
