As a Firmware Engineer at Micron Technology, Inc., you will develop high-performance controller firmware for innovative volatile and non-volatile memory systems. In this position, you will assist in evaluating, designing, building, bench testing, debugging, and failure analyzing firmware for new high-performance memory controllers and Solid State Drives that will increase performance, while reducing power, latency and SoC (System on Chip) complexity for the target markets. You can expect to work closely with system test engineers, system failure analysis engineers, firmware engineers, firmware test engineers, system hardware design engineers, product engineers, memory design engineers, firmware tools developers, and production engineers to solve cross-functional product development issues.

 

Your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, the following: Participate as a team member and work effectively inside and outside of the team. Demonstrate proficiency in coding skills, verification/validation, simulation, failure analysis, ASIC/FPGA/System bring-up, and the use of tools that support these activities.   Validate customer requirements and perform failure analysis on FW related issues. Develop structured source code targeting the embedded environment associated with state of the art memory. Perform design verification using a variety of verification methods, including simulation and product testingFocus on firmware quality in the system and the target application. Participate in SCRUM/Agile processes and distributed code reviews. Develop new test tools and methods. Follow specified processes/procedures/workflows.  Analyze equipment or software; you will demonstrate the effective analysis of functional or performance issues with the firmware and hardware in test environments or target host systems.
