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.

Field Applications Engineers help AMD drive a new era of computing into the datacenter by engaging with key customer engineering and leadership to demonstrate AMD technology differentiators addressing their business needs in real world usage scenarios. The FAE is responsible for managing all aspects of the technical engagement with their named customer(s), and is accountable to the Global Account Manager and/or Business Development Executive for those accounts, and to the field applications engineering manager/director. The ideal team member will also occasionally provide training to teammates and assist them with their own unique challenges.


This position places a special emphasis on platform and end user workload optimization. The FAE will cultivate a deep technical understanding of x86 server platform and processor SOC architecture, the Linux operating system, common cloud and MDC workloads, and performance profiling and monitoring utilities. The successful FAE will leverage the synthesis of this knowledge to understand application performance from the core to the node to the datacenter to guide the customer.
