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.

You will be part of the RTG (Radeon Technologies Group) graphics driver software engineering team, working closely with the driver development teams on multiple high-performance graphics hardware platforms for AMD's market leading GPU and APU technology. The D3D team is responsible for delivering drivers for multiple supported versions of the DirectX API on the Windows operating system platform for the Radeon family of GPUs. You will test and qualify drivers focusing on validating accurate functionality, identifying and reporting software defects in the driver, analyzing performance, and supporting the debugging and resolution of graphics driver issues.

The Person:

We are looking for a motivated quality engineer with strong expertise in PC hardware and software configuration, PC gaming, and great communication skills. Inside AMD, you will collaborate with partners from different driver component teams to help develop and deliver software drivers for AMD’s GPU/APU products. Together we will ignite the power and potential of AMD's world class GPUs. If you are passionate about software, gaming, and high performance, if you thrive in a fast-paced continuous learning environment and appreciate a challenge, come join our team!

  • Ability to be flexible in terms of responsibilities and hours; midnight, weekend shift, and extended hours may be required at times

Preferred Experience:

  • Demonstrated experience and ability in configuring and customizing high performance gaming PC hardware and software
  • Extensive experience gaming in Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) environments.
