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.


The Video HW IP/Solution Group at AMD is undergoing an exciting expansion by growing a team in Cambridge, UK.  We focus on video codec IP development, covering the entire design cycle across: architecture, algorithm design and modelling, block specification, HLS and RTL design, test planning, verification and end-to-end validation, and FW implementation.  Our video IP goes into the majority of AMD’s SoCs, so we get the pleasure of seeing the results of our work in real products.

We are a team who actively look for variety and complicated problems in our daily work.  We encourage each other to work, over time, on all aspects of our development and to have a big picture view of our designs to better guide our block level development.

Becoming a part of our local team at this stage is a hugely exciting opportunity and will enable you to play a key role in solidifying our culture and values as we grow.

We are looking for engineers with a wide range of experience levels, to work on research, design and verification.  You might be taking your first steps into HW design, be an experienced engineer or be ready to take technical ownership of some of our projects or help to lead our team – we need people to take on all these responsibilities.

You are keen to make a real word difference in video.  You want to achieve the best image quality and customer experience, whilst minimising bandwidth, power and chip area.  You are excited by the challenges these goals create.

You are intelligent, curious, and want to get stuck into very difficult concepts.  You are likely to have an excellent degree in a computer science, engineering, maths, or science discipline.  You have worked on some fascinating projects, either professionally or as a hobby, and are enthusiastic to talk to us about them.  You enjoy working in a team and sharing your skills and experience with your teammates.

We are part of a global team, working with and supporting colleagues principally in Markham, Ontario, Canada and Hyderabad, India, with additional satellite sites elsewhere in the USA and Canada.  You relish working with people globally and from different cultural backgrounds.  You are an excellent communicator in English, both verbally and written.

Below is a list of subjects we work on and technologies we work with.  You might have many relevant projects under your belt or some of what we do might be new to you – if you are interested and keen to learn, we’d love to talk with you!

•    Video codecs
•    System architecture
•    ASIC flow: design and verification; simulation, synthesis, timing closure and coverage; physical design and scripting
•    FGPA: primarily for ASIC debug and early bring-up
•    Verilog: low-level implementation and debug
•    System-C: high-level implementation and debug
•    C/C++: firmware implementation and algorithm modelling
•    Python: algorithm design and prototyping
