Micron Technology’s vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life and our commitment to people, innovation, tenacity, collaboration, and customer focus allows us to fulfill our mission to be a global leader in memory and storage solutions. This means conducting business with integrity, accountability, and professionalism while supporting our global community.


NAND Innovation Team is chartered with envisioning, creating, developing and deploying innovative solutions to the most difficult problems faced by non-volatile memory systems today and in the future. Using a relatively small, very select group of technical contributors with expertise that ranges all the way from Si to system, the focus is on multi-functional solutions utilizing vertical integration. The team is led by only one of four Senior Fellows at Micron. You will report to a NAND Fellow who leads NAND component innovations under the Technology Pathfinding organization. This is a unique role for a very creative, forward-thinking, and highly skilled memory design engineer.


Responsibilities include, but not limited to:

  • Innovate new solutions to complex multi-disciplinary problems by collaborating with other team members with skill sets ranging from Si to system
  • Propose and evaluate new NAND design and architecture concepts to overcome NAND scaling challenges for cost, performance, power and reliability compared to today’s state of the art
  • Propose and develop new NAND operation conditions and algorithms and evaluate pros and cons for the proposals
  • Be a point of contact to represent design team in the multi-functional team, coordinate the design related works with other design area authorities
  • Exercise leadership skills by demonstrating the ability to drive complex and inventive projects from idea conception through evaluation and implementation
  • Work closely with teams focused on execution to deploy developed projects with high quality and minimized time to market
  • Educate and mentor other technical contributors within the organization to raise their level of technical expertise



  • Masters of Science (or higher) in Electrical Engineering (or a related field) and 10-15 years of circuit design experience
  • Knowledge of analog and digital circuit simulators such as hspice, hsim/finesim, fast SPICE and Verilog
  • Knowledge of digital design using RTL
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the principles of non-volatile memory systems
  • Good understanding of NAND layout principles and interconnect architectures
  • Basic understanding of NAND memory device physics for cell, and CMOS circuits
  • Strong leadership skills and multi-functional teamwork
  • Proactive and significant problem-solving skills
  • Technical expertise in multiple subject areas within circuit design including analog design, high speed data path design, logic design and/or memory array row and column path circuit design
  • Proven track record of innovative solutions taken from conception through implementation as demonstrated by patent portfolio, technical literature and conference publications or other means
  • Articulate vision for new concepts through excellent documentation and presentation skills
  • Leadership skills to encourage, motivate and drive peer contributors with varied skill sets towards a common goal
  • Successful partnerships with internal and external domain authorities, advancing product development outcomes and setting the direction for future system products
