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.

OEM Ecosystem Planning Leader - 100987


With AMD's Client engineering teams, you will be exposed to the world’s best Desktop/PC and Mobile CPU, GPU and APU processors for accelerated system computing power. As an AMD Client Engineer you will have visibility to cutting edge multi-layered security features, H-Series processors optimized for gamers and creators, and U-Series processors optimized for thin and light notebooks. In addition, you will learn how AMD achieves unprecedented performance and battery life with 7nm “Zen 3” core architecture. Zen is delivering a 19% IPC and up to 26% gaming performance generational uplift, with power efficiency up to 2.8X greater than the performance-per-watt of our competition. Come join our world class client engineering team providing rapid career growth advancement, and access to cutting edge client technologies, through its year over year record-breaking market share, product performance and revenue gains!


Within the Client Computing Group, we are bringing ground-breaking technology to the personal computing ecosystem. Our RYZEN branded products are crafted for the most fast paced developers, artists, and game - people who demand responsiveness and power efficiency from their PC. RYZEN stormed the market in 2017 and continues to excite people across the globe.

The person:

In this role, your primary mission will be to understand how the PC comes together around RYZEN silicon and partner with OEMs (Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc) to ensure it happens. Many hardware components talk to Ryzen CPUs and APUs. This leader will ensure the right components are qualified against RYZEN silicon (multi-sourcing in most cases), that those components drive the overall system to perform well, and that the components are available in sufficient quantity to support volumes of RYZEN-based notebooks and desktops. The leader will take a system-level and ecosystem-wide view as opposed to just looking at the CPU. Deep partnerships with OEMs to understand all the relevant components and partnerships with the IHVs (hardware vendors) will be essential to success.

Key responsibilities:

  • Market research and interaction with key customers to understand market trends

  • Interpretation of corporate goals and how OEM client can impact those goals

  • Open partnership with OEMs to understand their components and how they harmonize with AMD silicon

  • Creation of strategic plans to address IHV/component challenges out into time (shortages, single-source, etc)

  • Partnership and negotiation with IHV partners to secure component development and production volume

Preferred experience:

  • Pre-existing understanding of the PC market, with an emphasis on OEM/MNC PC makers

  • Technical knowledge of PC components (storage, memory, networking, power delivery)

  • Customer interaction and partnership skills

  • Outstanding time-management skills - ability to prioritize multiple ongoing projects/initiatives

  • Ability to quickly build effective strategies with imperfect or insufficient datasets

  • Strong interpersonal skills - to work across a large organization and get things done

  • Executive-level presentation skills

Academic credentials:

  • 10+ years in the technology industry, with a focus on supply chain and partner management

  • BS and/or MS degree in Business Management, Finance, or Engineering from a top-tier university, with an MBA being a plus.
