WHAT YOU DO AT AMD CHANGES EVERYTHING

We care deeply about transforming lives with AMD technology to enrich our industry, our communities, and the world. Our mission is to build great products that accelerate next-generation computing experiences – the building blocks for the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming and embedded. Underpinning our mission is the AMD culture. We push the limits of innovation to solve the world’s most important challenges. We strive for execution excellence while being direct, humble, collaborative, and inclusive of diverse perspectives. 

AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE:

This role demands a seasoned professional with strong technical expertise in server platforms and an adept ability to navigate the complex interplay between hardware and software in HPC solutions. By facilitating a close collaboration with our HPC Applications Tuning team and integrating their insights into your work,  and by never compromising on our quality promise, you will be key to shaping future HPC products that stand out in the market and provide unrivaled value to our customers.

 

We are seeking an experienced and dedicated Fellow to join our High-Performance Computing (HPC) Platform Engineering team. In this critical role, you will drive the technical vision, platform strategy, and systems architecture guidance for our HPC products and solutions.  You will analyze and define complex system requirements and specifications across a wide spectrum of technologies, ensuring a holistic and optimally constrained platform stack spanning silicon, platform HW/SW, and usages.

 

This position demands a deep understanding of data center platform interdependencies and technology strategy with both HPC and AI knowledge desired. Furthermore, a key aspect of this role is the close collaboration with our HPC Applications Tuning team – ensuring that deep HPC software architectural knowledge consistently informs and influences our engagement strategies, future product definitions, and any associated plans of record (POR) changes.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Primary responsibility to provide architectural guidance and support to our teams and customers as we help them adapt their HPC and AI servers developed with our competition’s GPU solution to our MI300 product.   This role is critical to enable our rapid scaling and broad customer adoption both in enterprise and cloud.  It requires considering all aspects of system  HW/FW/SW to ensure our AMD-based solutions deliver more value than our competition even in chassis/rack infrastructure explicitly built for them.
  • Define architectural requirements for form factor and power, shaping the overall technical direction of our HPC solutions.
  • Engage with third-party hardware partners (IHV, memory, VR, etc.), ensuring optimal compatibility and integration with our HPC platform.
  • Oversee the development and application of CPU & GPU generic tools, delivering cutting-edge HPC solutions.
  • Provide strategic oversight for our AMD participation in industry consortiums, driving forward key HPC initiatives.
  • Advance our networking interface strategy, accounting for the specific requirements and nuances of HPC applications.
  • Collaborate closely with the HPC Applications Tuning team, ensuring that the software's architectural insights inform and influence all aspects of our HPC platform strategy, customer engagements, and future product definitions.
  • Drive future product architecture influence, leveraging insights from across the organization and industry trends.

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:  

  • Foster strong relationships with customers, engaging in dialogue to understand their needs and aligning our product development accordingly.
  • Coordinate with manufacturing partners (CM/ODM) to ensure smooth production processes and high-quality deliverables.
  • Work closely with HPC Apps Tuning leads and AMD field team on RFPs for HPC bids, showcasing our technical capabilities and alignment with customer needs.
  • Technically oversee the co-engineering of hardware development and validation, ensuring robust and reliable HPC solutions.  Work very closely with the AMD HPC and Server validation and platform engineering teams in NA and Penang on these engagements.
  • Engage with third-party software and firmware partners (ISVs, OSVs, IBVs) to ensure optimal software compatibility and performance.
  • Work in tandem with the HPC Applications Tuning team to integrate their insights into our validation plans, new validation content oversight, and performance attainment oversight.
  • Leverage the team's technical expertise in shaping future product architecture, networking interface strategy, and our overall DFx roadmap.

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

BS in Electrical Engineering is required.  An advanced Engineering degree (MS or Ph.D.) would be an added plus.
