Responsibilities

THE ROLE:   

In the rapidly expanding world of AI and HPC, solid system level integration and validation becomes paramount. Our DCGPU solutions, including APUs and GPUs, demand rigorous testing for optimum performance and reliability.   

We are seeking a Systems Design Engineer - Systems Debug with extensive silicon to systems understanding to drive complex system level debugs to resolution.  The Systems Design Engineering team fosters and encourages continuous technical innovation to showcase successes as well as facilitate continuous career development.   

THE PERSON:   

The ideal candidate will possess systems design and validation engineering expertise that will be leveraged towards product development, validation, and root cause resolution.  You are an expert system level engineer with understanding of hardware/firmware interaction, system level test scenarios and complex system level issue debug and methodologies.  You will be part of a team to drive and improve AMD’s abilities to deliver the highest quality, industry-leading technologies to market. 

  

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:   

  • Develop a deep understanding of our silicon SoCs, board level designs, system level designs and firmware/software stacks to drive the development of system stress tests and complex issue investigations 
  • Lead the debug and triage of issues found during the silicon validation and production phases of our AI and HPC systems. 
  • Apply learnings from system debugs toward developing stronger test coverage and improved tools and optimized work flows 
  • Work with multiple teams to develop and execute robust validation test plans at the functional, stress and volume levels that meet our customer workloads and requirements. 
  • Contribute to technical innovation to improve AMD’s capabilities across validation, including tool and script development, technical and procedural methodology enhancement, and various internal and cross-functional technical initiatives. 

   

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:   

  • Programming/scripting skills (e.g. C/C++, Perl, Ruby, Python)  
  • Extensive experience with board/platform-level debug, including delivery, sequencing, analysis, and optimization - structured approach to debug workflows. 
  • Extensive knowledge of system architecture, technical debug, and validation strategy  
  • Strong analytical/problem-solving skills and pronounced attention to details  
  • Extensive exposure to system level integration and debug of high speed protocols like PCIe/CXL/DDR 
  • Must be a self-starter, and able to independently drive tasks to completion  

 

  ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:   

  • Bachelor or Masters Degree in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering
