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.

GPU Graphics and Compute Architect



Create powerful new products enabling people, customers, partners, or organizations in general to tackle all their computing task or visualization needs productively and creatively.   Study state of the art algorithms in the field of graphics, compute architecture, computer vision, and machine learning to come up with appropriate SW-HW partitioning, architectures, and specifications for HW/SW/FW implementations.  Develop new algorithms or adaptations to existing algorithms to enable new ground-breaking capabilities and experiences. 



As a GPU Architect you will work in a hardware/software co-design to help shape industry leading algorithms, their implementations on hardware and the hardware and software architecture itself; all together resulting in some of the most widely used  and high performance rendering systems in the world.  Along with researching, analyzing and improving software and hardware architectures for today's industry leading graphics applications.   You will also ensure AMDs continued leadership in algorithm and processor design through influencing internal performance design tools and methodologies to meet performance expectations of future rendering systems and workloads.
