Job Description

This is an exciting time to be at Intel!  Come join Intels NAND Design Technology and Manufacturing (NAND-DTM) Group and work on one of the most advanced 3DNAND and SSD technology portfolios in the world.   As a global leader in the semiconductor industry, Intel possesses many industry leading SSD technologies including the most capable Quadruple Level Cell QLC NAND Flash products. 

Intel's NAND Design, Technology and Manufacturing Group, NAND-DTM, is looking to hire outstanding device engineers to be part of the team that develops industry-leading NAND Flash memory technology. We have exciting opportunities for qualified candidates looking to join the team working on NAND Flash media architecture and integration.

In this job, you will have the opportunity to work on leading edge terabit-scale non-volatile memory chips and push the boundaries of 3D NAND Flash technology by solving problems in a broad area that ranges from fundamental device physics to NAND component-system interactions. You will be part of a team responsible for defining NAND media architecture, SSD policies for NAND media management, and inventing as well as reducing to practice new NAND features to improve density, performance, and quality/reliability. In addition, you will work in cross-functional teams to resolve NAND technology scaling challenges using semiconductor device, circuit, and algorithm approaches to deliver world-class NAND components generation after generation. You will work closely with the product and system teams to ensure seamless integration of the memory components into systems.

Primary responsibilities will include hands-on characterization, data analysis and modeling of the observed NAND memory device/array characteristics, and solving problems involved in engineering the NAND memory components to achieve the highest level of performance, quality, and reliability.

The position is associated with the sale of the NAND business to SK Hynix aligning to Phase 2 of the transaction. Employees aligned to Phase 2 will continue to be employed by Intel developing NAND technology and components. Phase 2 of the transaction is expected to close in March 2025 at which time employees aligned to this phase of the transaction will transition employment to Solidigm, a stand-alone US subsidiary of SK Hynix headquartered in San Jose, California with offices world-wide. Solidigm is a leading global supplier of NAND flash memory solutions, led by Robert (Rob) B. Crooke as CEO, previously senior vice president and general manager of Intels Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group.
