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 Position

As a passionate and dedicated IO Performance Engineer in the Server Performance Group, you will participate in the next generation server performance analysis and optimization, workload analysis for various markets and overall product performance optimization.

What makes this an interesting opportunity?

  • You will be able to influence performance architecture development across a wide range of high-performance Server CPU products

Why is this job exciting?

  • AMD has a strong product line up and has a compelling roadmap of products with tremendous growth potential. Come work with us on our performance architecture team – we are the team that helped AMD design award-winning product families like EPYC.

What we are working on?

  • Server post-silicon IO Performance analysis and optimization.
  • Explore architectural level features in CPU cores, memory subsystem, IO subsystem and cross-IP.
  • Carry out detailed analysis on server IO workloads
  • Optimize server IO system performance through hardware/software stack tuning
  • Collaborate with business units and sales organizations on server customer engagement and enablement.
  • Developing flexible and robust simulation methodologies to help design AMD’s next generation products’ performance architecture.

When you join our Server Performance team as a Design Engineer, you will take ownership and chip in many ways including these areas:
