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 Software Technical Lead (TL) will be part of the Windows Platform Software Group. As a TL, you will be the primary technical contact driving the software delivery for upcoming products/ASICs. You will be working closely with a program manager from the beginning of the program (when the program requirements are being defined) until the program reaches the first level of customers. This is a high profile role with exposure within the entire department.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Working together with program managers to lead the technical effort for developing graphics driver for new ASICs.
  • Working with hardware and software designers and architects to review design documents.
  • Leading the emulation effort for pre-silicon driver bring-ups for new Asics
  • Working with hardware and software teams to enable all features.
  • Leading the debug efforts for the critical issues.


The Person:

  • Minimum 5 year experience in C/C++
  • Strong leadership experience; outgoing and proactive attitude to effectively drive issues.
  • Minimum 3 year experience in low level programming (kernel, device drivers, ideally Windows based)
  • Experience with software debugging tools (ideally windbg)
  • Basic knowledge of Windows OS architecture and understanding of Windows driver architecture, especially WDDM, kernel mode, virtual memory vs physical memory.
  • Excellent personal organization and ability to prioritise and carry out multiple tasks.
  • Able to influence and drive projects to meet key milestones and overcome challenges
  • Able to work effectively across teams and organizations and effectively communicate with individuals with a broad range of backgrounds (technical, management, etc)


Desired skills:

  • An understanding of basic GPU features and functionality
  • Understanding of HW architecture and terminologies (memory mapped register, simulation, emulation, bus, voltage/frequency, memory, power/clock gating, DRAM, SRAM, ROM, DMA, MMR, PCI, PCI configuration space, direct IO).
  • Previously held position leading a team/group
