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.
 

 

The Role:

Are you interested in opening up the boundaries of high-frequency and energy-efficient computing? As a part of our AMD physical design central methodology team, you can help define timing, power, and clocking methodologies for our next-generation, high-performance CPU/GPU/SOC designs. This team works across AMD ranging from low power APUs up to the world’s most powerful super computers. In this multi-functional role, you will have the opportunity to drive physical design methodology optimizations across the entire physical design space (library/technology/flows/design)

 

 

The Person:

 

In this multi-functional role, you will have the opportunity to work across multiple divisions to drive physical design methodology optimizations across the entire physical design space (library/technology/flows/design).
