Job Description

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.

Technical leader responsible for Emulation of SOC at the System level and post-Silicon Debug AMD Enterprise products. Systems are integrated combinations of computer hardware components (CPUs, graphics, memory, IO adapters and peripherals) and software components (firmware, BIOS, drivers, OS, virtualization, system management, and applications). This individual will interface with Silicon design, FW Design, Platform Design, Debug leads, Software and Validation teams to identify critical silicon features and provide detailed technical direction to drive emulation of those features, prioritize debug, test planning, and execution for all aspects of AMD's enterprise product Validation.

Candidate Requirements:

The candidate must have a BSEE with 12 years, or MSEE with 10 years of relevant working experience in new product development from a silicon design, platform design and/or product engineering discipline. The candidate should have experience as a technical leader. The candidate must also have a strong understanding of the general silicon engineering process (preferably CPU or GPU), from concept through tape-out to production. Experience driving multi-site and multi-disciplined engineering program teams and cross sight debug is a plus. A successful candidate must have exceptional verbal, as well as written, communication skills.
