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.







As a Member of Technical Staff Design Verification Engineer, you will work with leading industry tools and design & verification concepts to achieve full functional, performance & power verification closure on a variety of digital design blocks which are a part of the Graphics Core IP (GFXIP). You will work closely with architects, designers and other design verification engineers to author testplan for pre-silicon verification, planning & development of testbenches to exercise the design, write detailed testplans to cover new blocks and features, drive the development of test-cases and coverpoints or assertions to achieve verification closure. You will also own regression and coverage tracking & closure for the block(s) that you are responsible for.


A project usually has a year timeline and there are many products that the GFXIP is deployed into, including main-stream, mobile, workstation, machine-intelligence GPUs, APUs and gaming consoles.

  • Be responsible for functional, power and performance verification of a block, including verification planning, execution and DV closure
  • Develop and execute test and coverage plans to ensure the functional, performance and power completeness
  • Create, reuse and debug testbenches, verification components and tests for verification of the design
  • Drive verification methodology improvement initiatives and encourage adoption of better processes across the broader team
  • Mentor and train junior design verification engineers and interns



  • Minimum 5+ years of verification experience on large ASIC development projects
