You’ve in all probability heard that tech firms have stopped hiring currently. This is true of Apple and Google, but it surely’s not common. AMD is hiring, and even constructing a brand new campus for its Radeon Technology Group division.

Older {hardware} fans will do not forget that the Radeon Technology Group began life as Array Technology Inc, later often known as ATI Technologies. ATI was one of many smaller names in graphics adapters within the early days of PCs, however shortly gained prominence within the multimedia period as a result of its wonderful video acceleration capabilities. ATI was one of many very first to supply mixed 2D and 3D acceleration capabilities in a single chip, too.
ATI’s RAGE FURY MAXX, which we reviewed in 2001!

AMD purchased ATI in 2006 and the corporate has remained kind of aggressive with its greatest rival, NVIDIA. While Radeon playing cards’ recognition could have taken a dip in the previous couple of years, they’re nonetheless extraordinarily succesful {hardware} with strong software program, which is greater than we will say for primarily everybody else that dates to the identical classic.

On the CPU facet of issues, AMD is seeing unprecedented success towards long-time rival and competitor Intel. Sure, again across the flip of the millennium AMD landed some blows on the blue staff’s jaw with the Athlon, and its management with x86-64 compelled Intel to proceed the cross-licensing settlement the businesses established with the 32-bit x86 structure. However, the corporate faltered with main performance-sapping bugs in the course of the Phenom period after which fell flat on its face with the “Bulldozer” AMD FX CPUs.

That’s all historical historical past now, with Ryzen outselling Intel at DIY outlets and EPYC making severe inroads within the server market. AMD has some money in pocket, and it is trying to broaden. Mike Evans of AMD says that the corporate is hiring engineers for each its CPU and GPU teams, constructing a brand new facility for R&D, and that he is on the lookout for some good internet builders, too.

Looking on the firm’s job listings, there are some 2,469 outcomes, so it seems to be like there’s loads of room at AMD for brand new blood. That’s not a shock to these of us who observe tech information, as important parts of AMD’s expertise have left for its opponents. (Although clearly the corporate is doing alright, contemplating the latest outcomes of Ryzen and Radeon.)
AMD has hundreds of job listings, only for Engineering.

Most of the GPU job outcomes we see are in Austin, TX, Santa Clara, CA, and Orlando, FL, though there are additionally some worldwide postings in Australia, the UK, China, and elsewhere. There are openings for {hardware} engineers in addition to software program builders.

The CPU facet of AMD’s enterprise appears to be principally hiring for the brand new facility in Poughkeepsie, New York. Going over the positions, we see a variety of important-sounding jobs, like “CPU Core Performance Architect” and “Senior Infinity Fabric Verification Engineer”. It appears like the brand new site will likely be a serious AMD R&D location.

Meanwhile, so far as internet dev goes, Mike Evans stated that he’s on the lookout for “experienced web devs with database admin experience,” particularly close to Santa Clara. AMD’s already lately revised its web site with an inexpensive analog to Intel’s ARK database, but it surely undoubtedly nonetheless wants some work, so maybe that is associated to that.
