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.





We’re a rapidly growing team powering the graphic processing units (GPUs) of Cloud Service Providers such as Google Stadia, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. As cloud computing sets the tone in the new generation of technology, we work to enable cloud gaming, machine learning and powering other creative uses of GPUs in a non-traditional environment.




We develop kernel driver software for professional, server-grade GPUs, such as AMD Radeon Pro V520, allowing a single GPU to be shared by up to 16 Virtual Machines. A successful candidate will work with industry experts on the team to develop and debug our latest reference driver solutions on several virtualization platforms and operating systems.




The successful candidate will learn about graphics driver architecture, OS/driver/BIOS interactions and how we program our graphics chips to work with a variety of Hypervisors (VMWare, Xen, KVM, HyperV) and Operating Systems (Windows, Linux). As a valued member of our team, we will mentor, train and grow you into a code ninja of C/C++, OOP, and kernel mode debugging skills.


You will participate in SCRUM teams to give you an opportunity to learn and experience all aspects of software development process including coding, documentation, and performance analysis. Your problem-solving skills will be challenged by debugging and resolving issues. Our team will help you grow your career and your contributions will help to enhance AMD's Cloud GPU offerings.




  • Strong C/C++ and object-oriented programming skills
  • Windows or Linux development experience
    • Taken course in Operating System design
  • Experience with software development processes and tools such as debuggers, source code control systems (GitHub) and profilers is a plus
  • Good communication and problem-solving skills
  • Highly motivated, self-starter with good interpersonal skills
