Intel 3D NAND Device Engineer (SK) in Des Moines, Iowa

Job Description

Intel's NAND Design, Technology, and Manufacturing Group (NAND-DTM) is looking to hire outstanding Device engineers to be part of the team that develops industry-leading NAND Flash memory technology.

We have exciting opportunities in the Technology Development group for qualified Device Engineers looking to be part of the team responsible for delivering Moore's Law of Scaling for NAND Flash memory.

You will be part of the team responsible for overcoming NAND cell scaling challenges using semiconductor devices, technology, circuit, and algorithm approaches.

What you'll be doing:

  • Hands-on characterization, silicon experimentation, and modeling of the observed NAND memory device/array characteristics and engineering solutions to achieve the highest level of NAND memory component performance, quality, and reliability.

  • Collaborate with process integration engineers, circuit designers, product engineers, system engineers, and reliability engineers to understand the critical issues and interdependencies and engineer solutions to address them.

  • Process development and process integration engineers to create leading-edge NAND Flash technology.

  • Work with circuit designers for designing and implementing circuit schemes and algorithms used for reading and writing the NAND Flash memory and work with Solid State Devices systems engineers to establish system policies for the proper usage of NAND components as the storage media in SSDs.

  • Good problem-solving skills demonstrating good analytical capabilities, sound technical foundations, and creativity.

This position is in the NAND-DTM Group which is aligned to phase 2 of the sale of the NAND business to Solidigm, a wholly owned subsidiary of SK hynix. Employees in this business group will work on 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. Solidigm, a leading global supplier of NAND flash memory solutions, is headquartered in San Jose, California with offices worldwide.
