If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

We are currently looking for an HPC Solutions Architect to join the North American field support team, based in Austin or home office elsewhere, reporting into the North American FAE Manager.


Role of the HPC Solutions Architect:

  • Porting and optimizing both source codes and ISV applications
  • Seeking maximum performance through a combination of compilation flags, libraries, and understanding the AMD Rome architecture down to the Floating Point Unit
  • Testing different compilers and math libraries in the pursuit of maximum performance
  • Scaling codes within a single server and then across very large systems
  • Understanding how code performance is affected at the system-level: memory, cache, network, storage etc.
  • Interface with HPC-related groups within AMD: e.g. compilers, libraries, engineering
  • Cultivate and maintain subject matter expertise in Fortran, C, MPI, OpenMP
  • Document and publish performance results and procedures you have generated
  • Automate repeatable procedures such as code compilation, running jobs, etc.
  • Provide feedback to AMDs compiler and math libraries development teams to improve performance
  • Collaborate with HPE on future GenZ HPC investigations and performance testing

 

Candidate profile:

You will already have gained considerable experience working with some of the largest HPC community codes and are familiar with the challenges these codes take in porting and optimizing for a new HPC system. Your optimisation skills will also include a good understanding of compiler and math library optimisation; and there will also be the need to investigate code sensitivities subject to memory latency and cache hierarchy, develop strategies for extreme scaling, and to work with our partner HPE on future memory architectures and Gen-Z networks.

You will also have experience working with well known ISV codes such as LS-DYNA, Star CCM+, Powerflow, Gaussian, Ansys CFX, and Molpro for example. In this position, you will have the opportunity to interface to other teams within AMD and engage with teams working at a deeper level within the processor and with our compiler and math library teams. As such these roles provides a significant opportunity for an individual to grow their depth of HPC knowledge down to chip level by working for one of the most exciting semiconductor companies currently in the HPC sector.

This position requires an individual with excellent verbal and written communication skills and a good balance of hardware, system architecture and software expertise. The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to independently manage multiple priorities to deliver results on time, and to build excellent working relationships both internally and externally.

Must-haves:

  • Expertise in compiling large codes from source, with appropriately linked math libraries and flag optimisation: VASP, CP2K, NAMD for example
  • Experience with large CFD and Structural ISV codes
  • Excellent knowledge in the landscape of different math Libraries for HPC
  • Impact of system level hardware and configuration on performance, such as Infiniband and shared parallel filesystems
  • Able to write good Fortran and C, and understand the differences between their respective standards.
  • Demonstrated ability to incorporate and scrutinize MPI and OpenMP
  • Solid understanding of configuring baseline synthetic codes: HPL, STREAM, DGEMM, HPCG, HPCC
  • Application expertise across a number of CFD, Molecular Dynamics, Quantum Chromodynamics, Structural Mechanics, Climate Change, and weather
  • Hands-on experience with performance profiling and monitoring tools and software performance optimization
  • Bachelor’s degree in a technical discipline (computer science, electrical engineering preferred, physics, applied mathematics)
  • At least 5 years experience working with High Performance Computing applications
  • Fluent in English

Nice-to-haves:

  • 10 years or more experience
  • Experience inspecting assembly
  • Experience with large ISV codes including: LS-DYNA, Star CCM+, Fluent, ABAQUS, NASTRAN, Paraview, CFX, Gaussian
  • Knowledge in hybrid MPI+OMP
  • Understanding of memory and cache hierarchy and methods to query performance/latency at each level
  • Understanding HPC dataflow down to the register-level
  • Experience making performance projections
