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:


AMD is seeking a thermal-mechanical expert with a background working from the silicon die level to the server system level. The position’s primary task will be developing thermal models of SOCs which are then used by internal customers and external customers. The external models will be in IcePak or FloTherm for general system level optimization work. The internal models will be simplified representations allowing silicon architects to study tradeoffs of power levels and transient power limits in localized die areas. The ability to analyze and build solutions via open-source(OpenFOAM/FreeCAD) software a huge plus.


The Person:


A successful candidate will possess deep technical knowledge/experience on methodologies and experimentation to validate thermal models.


Key Responsibilities:


  • Thermal and mechanical modeling and testing of components

  • Part and assembly design, from concept to detail design to manufacturing introduction

  • Validation of components in bench and system configuration

  • Produce and maintain detailed technical documentation for customer consumption

  • Build, manage, release, and maintain BOM's and assembly instructions

  • Provide comprehensive customer support

  • Coordinate with platform engineers and engineers from other internal teams to ensure that all design requirements are satisfied

  • Work with EEs and PCB engineers to develop and fine tune PCBA board layouts and outlines

  • Lead all aspects of product shipping packaging testing and provide mentorship for packaging design

  • Proven successful experience in mechanical engineering within a product design and manufacturing environment


Preferred Experience:


  • Strong analytical skills, including structural (FEA, Ansys preferred) and thermal modelling (FloTherm, Icepak, OpenFoam preferred)

  • Proficiency in CAD modeling, proven and sheetmetal (SolidWorks preferred)

  • Solid understanding of drafting best practices and the application of GD&T principles

  • A detailed understanding of standard manufacturing processes

  • Ability to craft for a wide range of fabrication and manufacturing processes

  • Experience using and automating tests using lab equipment (Instron, LabView)

  • Detail oriented personality with solid documentation and reporting skills

  • Experience and proficiency with customer facing interactions

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

  • Proficient with the Microsoft Office Suite


Academic Credentials:


  • Engineering degree (Mechanical / Aerospace / Mechatronics) with 10 years of relevant professional experience
