Job Information

Job Description:

This position needs to provide strategic professional/technical leadership or vision to the Company, and will lead every design activities. Leadership and responsibility will be required as a Technologist.

This candidate must be able to write technical papers, application notes, user instructions and conducting necessary technical training internally or externally.

The individual will also work closely with ASIC, Firmware, Device, Design, Quality and Reliability teams and building strong relations with technical decision makers.


This position needs to NAND and FTL experience that has deepened into intuition and highly skilled at bringing up new products. Knowledge of error correction codes, statistics, variability, probability, design of experiments.

In this position, the individual will program and implement SSD firmware in C and C++ language, debug issues and problems coupled with RTOS, SATA and PCIe protocol, and NAND interface.  The individual analyzes, designs, programs, debugs and modifies SSD firmware. Troubleshoots code for firmware (IC embedded code) applications. Work often involves analog and digital hardware and software operating systems.
