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 Role:

We are looking for an outstanding software engineer or developer with a passion and demonstrated ability to rapidly learn new methods (e.g. from open-source code and academic papers), develop prototypes, invent new techniques and put the best ones in production.

  • Share key insights to remote teams, e.g. 3D graphics HW and SW architects, designers
  • Once that first tool is mature, you will continue to maintain it part-time, and join another project involving new technologies, e.g. 3D graphics, deep learning, Julia programming language.


Preferred Experience:

  • 2+ years experience programming in Python 3.x is required.
