As a NAND Product Development Engineer at Micron Technology, Inc., you will be responsible for the development of the performance and reliability of our new NAND products.


  • Prior to first silicon of the NAND product, you will:
    • run simulations to learn and create documentation covering the read, program, and erase operations of the NAND product; and
    • generate and propose an initial set of device configuration, voltage, and timing register settings to be used for first silicon.
  •  After receiving first silicon of the NAND product, you will:
    • characterize the device read margins, performance, and reliability of the product;
    • propose and implement changes to device settings or program/read/erase algorithms to improve product capability toward achievement of product performance and reliability goals;
    • identify, propose, and implement corrective actions for any issues that are identified through qualification, to ensure that our products meet the necessary performance and reliability specifications; and
    • engage with internal SSD/ Managed NAND and system media development teams to ensure the NAND product is well-optimized for its intended systems.
  •  Additionally, you will:
    • propose enhancements to the read, program, and erase algorithms of future NAND products, based on your learnings.
    • participate in cross-functional efforts to document, standardize, and improve our capability to characterize and optimize future products.


Successful candidates for this position will demonstrate:

  • Strong knowledge of NAND memory cell operation, device physics, and reliability mechanisms
  • Strong knowledge of NAND program, erase, and read algorithms and operations
  • Strong knowledge of NAND Read Window Budget (RWB) and device characterization
  • Good familiarity with semiconductor memory fabrication processes
  • Some background in computer programming or scripting languages. Knowledge of Perl, Python, and/or Matlab is desirable.
  • Effective communication skills in written and spoken English
  • Good multitasking and organizational skills
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Strong presentation skills
  • Strong self-motivation and enthusiasm


  • Position requires a Bachelor’s/ Master’s/ PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Physics, or related disciplines.
