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.

Machine Learning Architectures and Acceleration Researcher


AMD Research is an entrepreneurial research organization with a strong track record of driving innovations into AMD products. We are a global leader in the development of the world’s most advanced high performance exascale computers. We work closely with government and commercial customers along with internal teams and partners to develop hardware and software technologies into next generation computing platforms. As part of AMD Research, you will have a leadership role in a winning team to develop best-in-class hardware and software technologies as we drive beyond exascale.



You cannot stop generating architectures that execute machine learning algorithms at speeds that exceed expectations. You continuously build systems that incorporate your ideas in tight collaboration with application developers (customers) and other engineers. You delight in describing your team’s novel solutions to academic and commercial audiences.




AMD Research is looking for a machine learning developer/architect to drive our long-term vision in heterogeneous compute architectures that dramatically accelerate training and inferencing. In this role, you will develop technologies that advance AMD’s machine learning products beyond the state of the art. You will be responsible for driving the development of machine learning algorithms and software into a scaled-out environment that utilizes a variety of accelerator technologies including, but not limited to GPUs, FPGAs and tightly coupled CPUs. You will work closely with teams in research as well as product groups and external customers to define architectures, algorithms, and system techniques that address tomorrow’s needs today.
