TCG Security Firmware Test Engineer

Irvine, CA, US


Req. ID: 145760 


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.


As a Firmware Test Engineer specializing in Security in the Solid State Drives (SSD) group at Micron Technology, you will develop test plans, test cases and infrastructure to validate and verify security firmware for Solid State Drives using NAND Flash memory.  This involves creating test plans and designing automated white-box and black-box tests to fully test the security implementations for new high-performance mass storage controllers. Your tests will be used to verify the security protocol implementations meet industry standards as well as verifying the SSDs do not have any security vulnerabilities.  You can expect to work closely with engineering project management, fellow firmware test engineers, firmware developers, and system hardware design engineers to solve cross-functional design issues

In this role, you will work closely with the security firmware development team working in an Agile development process.  The test plans and test cases that you develop will use white-box testing methodology to fully validate firmware functionality on a module by module basis as the firmware is being developed, and black-box testing to validate the full firmware implementation.  You will be expected to create test plans, define testing methods, specify required white box test interfaces, design test algorithms, and write Python test scripts to ensure security standards are followed and security protocols are correctly implemented.  You will test the firmware in a variety of environments including simulation, FPGA prototyping, and on prototype hardware.

Your responsibilities will also include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Creating test plans and strategies to improve firmware quality and test coverage.
  • Developing automated testing procedures and infrastructure to improve coverage and efficiency.
  • Developing white-box oriented testing methods to verify and validate firmware product.
  • Analyzing and triaging test failures, performance, and quality data related to firmware products.
  • Establishing working relationships with firmware development engineers to improve code quality.

Successful candidates for this position will have: 

  • 5+ years of embedded firmware testing experience.
  • Experience with testing TCG Enterprise, TCG Opal, Pyrite, TCG Ruby, or IEEE1667
  • Experience with test script development using Python or a similar language
  • C/C++ embedded software development experience.
  • Knowledge of test automation, testing methodologies, and test tools.
  • Storage industry experience and experience with NVMe, SATA, or SAS protocol. (Preferred)
