Job Details

Our vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life for all .

Micron Technology is a world leader in innovating memory and storage solutions that accelerate the transformation of information into intelligence, inspiring the world to learn, communicate and advance faster than ever.

Our Opportunity Summary:

For more than 43 years, Micron Technology, Inc. has redefined innovation with the world's most advanced memory and semiconductor technologies. We're an international team of visionaries and scientists, developing groundbreaking technologies that are transforming how the world uses information to enrich life.

Interested in changing the landscape of artificial intelligence workloads? Come join the team prototyping very high-performance memory systems for AI! In the Systems Pathfinding organization at Micron, we drive concepts across the stack, from applications to architectures and from concept to product. This is your opportunity to make a difference in the future of computing!

As a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff or Fellow in AI-optimized Memory Platform Architecture, you'll lead the definition of platform architectures and the development of system prototypes for groundbreaking, tightly coupled memory systems tailored for AI workloads. Joining our expanding team of domain experts across platforms, systems architecture, component design, and advanced packaging, you'll analyze platform architecture trade-offs in close collaboration with design and packaging teams. Your responsibilities will encompass designing memory system interfaces, crafting prototype architectures, and seamlessly integrating SoCs, FPGAs, and systems software. Additionally, you'll play a pivotal role in setting up, demonstrating, and evaluating heterogeneous systems. We actively promote collaboration with technical partners across various domains as we strive to develop world-class memory systems.

In our Advanced Architecture DRAM Memory group we're developing a completely new Architecture that pushes both bandwidth and energy efficiency to levels never seen before in the industry! We're advancing the optimization of artificial intelligence within our new product line by innovating and integrating end-to-end groundbreaking front-end and backend processes with revolutionary design, debugging various tests, and qualification techniques to develop the lowest power per bit solutions to improve customer experience in the field of ML (Machine Learning) and AI (Artificial Intelligence).

Our team vision is a continuing desire to develop your skills working in an inclusive diverse environment of multicultural Teams across worldwide geographies! Enabling the creative career path you deserve with a collaborative environment and groundbreaking technology and growing upon your imagination and creativity.

(Disclaimer): While you may not exhibit all of the characteristics/skills listed below today, we are highly interested in a teammate who is motivated to grow in technical breadth and depth. Suppose you are open to learning while being a valued member of a team of premier engineers. In that case, we are determined to help build upon your existing foundation, while rapidly growing your individual and collaborative skills in this exciting and outstanding opportunity.

*This will be a hybrid role based out of either our Folsom, CA or San Jose, CA offices.

*The Seniority level will be determined by a combination of education and experience.

What's Encouraged Daily:
