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.



Silicon CAD Engineer


This is a great opportunity to develop and maintain world-class hardware physical design flow in a fast-paced production environment on the very edge of modern technology! The goal of our Silicon CAD team at AMD is to determine a set of standards and techniques for designing chips with the highest performance, lowest cost, and lowest power usage. We then automate these best practices into a software design flow for efficiency and consistency, and work with various design teams to put the software to use in constructing next-generation GPUs, CPUs and APUs with industry-standard EDA software tools such as Synopsys IC Compiler II and Primetime.


You are a highly motivated self-starter, who is passionate about solving problems and reaching goals. You have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and collaborate well with others on your team, as well as with other business units.


  • Developing new flow features around new EDA tools and tool capabilities.
  • Conducting evaluations of tool quality, tuning the flow to get optimal results from existing tools and supporting the place and route flow.
  • Improving and maintaining the flow infrastructure and automation.


  • Excellent UNIX and scripting programming skills (Perl, Python, and/or TCL)
  • Strong understanding of digital circuits
  • Experience with software build automation
  • Very good knowledge of at least one EDA place & route tool (Synopsys IC Compiler II, Cadence Innovus, Avatar Aprisa, Mentor Nitro-SoC)
  • Physical Design/CAD experience
  • Experience with version control software (e.g. perforce, git)


Bachelor's or Master's Degree in Computer or SW Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent is preferred.
