There is tremendous growth in Solid State Drives (SSDs) as Micron's product offerings expand to meet the performance and capability requirements required across multiple business segments! To support Micron's SSD programs and customers, the Failure Analysis (FA) process must advance in kind by way of a continual expansion of technical knowledge, novel fault isolation techniques, and debug expertise.

As a Global Quality (GQ) Non Volatile Memory Quality & Reliability Assurance (NVMQRA) SSD Returned Material Authorization (RMA) FA Senior Engineer at Micron Technology, you will be performing system level failure analysis of customer returned products. Through a review of proprietary logs and firmware code, you will strive to identify the source of each customer failure and summarize your analysis. The root cause process will entail working with various engineering groups both within Micron and external SSD controller manufacturers. You will also be required to perform additional hardware drive analysis, correlation activity, and data collection for issues extending beyond firmware-driven root causes as HW/FW interaction is ever present. The ability to distill technical details into an understandable summary is critical.
