As a Research Staff Member, you will be part of a team advancing state of the art in architecture of data storage systems. Our current areas of focus are: emerging non-volatile memories, such as PCM, ReRAM and MRAM, and their impact on CPU microarchitecture, coherence protocols and scaleout for memory-centric systems; machine learning and inference workloads as drivers of tomorrow's computer architectures; novel storage device physics that could someday reshape the memory/storage hierarchy; quorum protocols and erasure codes for fault tolerance at scale.

We seek candidates with strong publication portfolio and proven track record of delivery in any related field of engineering or science. We value self-driven personality and the aptitude for creative tinkering and prototyping over any specific skillset.

The skillsets especially valued are FPGA prototyping, design of networking or coherence protocols, and CPU microarchitecture design. As part of your career development, you will be expected to establish your own research direction in one of the varied areas of interest to storage industry, publish academic papers and patents, gain recognition in professional organizations, and pursue academic collaborations to keep us on the bleeding edge of technology development.

Advanced degree in an engineering or scientific discipline is required. Position level and compensation are commensurate with postgraduate experience and competitive with other employers in the Bay Area. This opening is for the Milpitas, CA office with relocation package for remote applicants.
