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. This is who we are at our best. One Company. One Team.

AMD together we advance_



In this role, you will provide technical expertise for execution on the functional verification strategy for next generation microprocessor designs, maintain and enhance existing functional verification methodology, and improve existing infrastructure. Additionally, you will work on related projects and/or assignments as needed to meet team goals. Examples include project definition, training and documentation, and developing timely and cost effective solutions. You will interface with architects and TG/PG RTL/Designers.



We are looking for a candidate with great communication skills and the ability to work independently. If this sounds like you, we welcome you to apply!



  • Perform functional feature verification of high speed Microprocessor designs, including development of infrastructure, directed and random test suites at behavioral RTL level across SoC, Core and block hierarchies.

  • Develop environments, infrastructure and test plans to accommodate both full chip and stand alone block level verification and debug capabilities using simulation tools, debug tools and programming skills, based on in-depth understanding of the architecture and HDL/logical design of the microprocessor.

  • Participate in development of formal verification techniques.

  • Develop an automated regression infrastructure setup for functional verification of high speed microprocessor designs.

  • A thorough understanding of design architecture in order to develop, run and debug x86 assembly based directed tests and random exercisers.

  • Validate microprocessor design, leveraging C/C++/Perl/assembly programming, logic design and simulation skill set.

  • Resolve all simulation discrepancies and assertion responses for both behavioral and gate level logic models. Measure and analyze coverage results and take necessary actions to fill in coverage holes. 



  • Demonstrated technical expertise in functional verification of microprocessor designs.

  • Experience with Verilog/System Verilog HDL, programming in Perl, C/C++,  and logic simulation.

  • Direct experience with Verilog simulators is a plus.

  • Strong understanding of computer architecture and assembly programming. 



  • BS and 5+ years of experience, MS and 2+ years of experience, or Ph.D with prior experience desired (all degrees are related to CS or EE).
