  • Job Code
Job Description

In this position, you will be working as a member of the NAND Design, Technology & Manufacturing Group's (NDTM) Quality and Reliability team, helping to develop Intel's new 3D NAND technologies and system level storage products, focusing on Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) reliability.

The 3D NAND Product QRE will be responsible for but not limited to:

  • Designing and executing experiments to identify, segment, characterize and model NVM reliability mechanisms.
  • Developing empirical and physics-based predictive reliability modeling methods and tools for reliability risk assessments.
  • Developing new acceleration techniques, test methods and analytical tools to provide fast and effective feedback for reliability process optimization.
  • Determining reliability requirements and technology targets of components and systems to achieve company, customer, and other reliability objectives.
  • Developing the appropriate process- and product-qualification stress methods and criteria.
  • Influencing design, process, product, test and/or system solutions in order to enable aggressive scaling of Intel's NVM technologies and exploration of novel memory cells.
  • You may be expected to lead small cross-functional and cross-company groups of engineers on multi-disciplinary technical projects to solve complex reliability issues- such as, during technology development and ramp to high-volume manufacturing.
  • Understand the high-level picture and apply systems thinking to generate solutions.

The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:

  • Demonstrated attention to details and quality of the work.
  • Demonstrated persistence and commitment to task.
  • Clearly communicate achieved results and to influence wide range of audiences.
  • Work well in a team setting with people from a wide range of backgrounds.
  • Systematic analytical problem solving.
  • Demonstrated creativity and innovation in solving technical problems.
  • Affinity for cross-disciplinary work.

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.
