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 Test Engineer


Test Engineering is a cost, quality, and time-to-market driven team responsible for enabling the availability of microprocessors to our customers. Pre-silicon responsibilities for the Test Engineer include understanding product features, developing characterization test plans, highlighting test coverage holes, and developing software and hardware infrastructure to execute those plans. This requires interaction with Design and Platform Engineering and allows for the opportunity to provide test enhancement feedback for future designs.   Post-silicon responsibilities include microprocessor debug & analysis and the execution of characterization plans. This may include silicon performance issues, yield issues, manufacturing processes, and device marginalities. The Test Engineer will work closely with Design and Platform Engineering to root cause issues that result from the debug, characterization and margin analysis. The Test Engineer will also provide datasheet specifications and drive improvements in yield.
