Data Analytics Specialist (80539)

Advanced Micro Devices inc.

This is a Contract position in Markham, ON posted September 27, 2020.

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.







The SSE Strategic Alignment and Analytics team ensures that the 300-strong Software Systems Engineering organization driving product and software quality at AMD is a well-oiled machine. The team develops the strategy and initiatives to drive alignment across the organization and with the rest of the company. Data and analytics play a key role to the team’s success.


As a Data Analytics Specialist, you will become familiar with the vast ecosystem of tools, processes and data sources making up the software development lifecycle that produces the graphics driver. From these sources you will harness and analyze data, derive insights, create dashboards and convey the narratives to audiences of varying seniority. You will interact with business and technical leaders in strategy, release management, engineering, validation and program management roles to confirm (or refute) their assumptions with hard data.




The successful candidate is self-motivated and is comfortable working with a broad set of tools, languages, and technologies – and has a high aptitude for diving in and picking up new things. The candidate thrives in a fast-paced and agile environment and knows how to juggle multiple deadlines. The working environment is an open and collaborative space, so clear communication and enjoying teamwork is a must.




  • Architect, build, and maintain data pipelines and applications such as dashboards and reporting tools to visualize data for descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics
  • Gather, sanitize, and analyze data to construct the narratives and convey key insights
  • Transform incomplete and vague requirements into well-designed products that exceed expectations on delivery
  • Mentor and supervise post-graduate interns working in AMD offices worldwide





  • A degree in a technical field is preferred, but not essential
  • A few years of software development experience and knowledge in SDLC
  • Strong computer science foundation in areas such as data structures & algorithms, operating systems, computer networks, databases and UX/UI
  • Proficiency in a modern object-oriented programming language such as Python or C#
  • Strong familiarity in the following areas are a plus:
    • Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence
    • MS PowerBI or other business intelligence and analytics tools
    • Web development (front-end, back-end) using different frameworks
    • Windows Server Platform including IIS
