This is an exciting opportunity to work on the cutting edge of GPU Computing for Machine Learning.



We are looking for a candidate with industry-level experience involving machine learning and GPU programming. The individual will be a member of a team where communication and team skills are highly valued.



  • Work within and coordinate with a small team to analyze, implement, and optimize DirectML for machine learning models on AMD GPUs.
  • Collaborate with ISV, library, compiler, driver, and hardware engineers to influence strategic decisions to achieve the highest performance for machine learning models.
  • Innovate new algorithmic improvements that exploits the strengths of the hardware architecture to deliver the best possible machine learning performance.



  • Relevant experience in Machine Learning and GPU programming
  • Experience in deep learning frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, Caffe, ONNX, etc) and familiarity with CNN/LSTM model architectures
  • Knowledge of CPU and GPU architecture and experience in GPGPU programming technologies
  • Experience advocating for technical solutions in a collaborative team environment
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Experience with writing HLSL shaders is a plus
