NVMe Firmware Designer

Direct Hire

Savage, MN



Are you interested in working for a company that recognizes and values individuals rather than working as a “cog in the wheel”?  Do you like knowing that your management team is dedicated to ensuring team members have stable, long-term employment rather than working to determine how to eliminate you as a cost reduction?  Our company provides their employees with the opportunity to work on large company projects while operating in a small company environment.  While our work is performed as contractors from the perspectives of our clients, our positions are salaried with benefits including holiday/ vacation/ sick days as well as health insurance and a 401k plan.

We will be working with a major storage vendor to implement the firmware for an HDD that utilizes the NVMe interface, to facilitate a paradigm shift in managing Hyperscale storage.  This project has just begun an architecture/planning phase that will take approximately 4-6 months.  This phase is expected to be followed by an implementation phase that culminates in a Product Demo Unit – this implementation is expected to take on the order of 2 years for an approximately 10-person team.  The “productization phase” would follow, likely consuming the team for a similar amount of time.  We will need staffing support starting at the beginning of the implementation phase.

• Key Qualifications
• Must have 2+ years of HDD or SSD firmware development experience
• Storage device host interface protocol, command processing, and/or performance tuning experience preferred
• NVMe-specific experience would be highly valuable
• Target Candidate
• This position would be a good fit for any mid-level to high-level front-end firmware designer who wants to work on an interesting project, improve their design skills, etc.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

This position does not qualify for sponsorship.  NO THIRD-PARTY RESUMES PLEASE.  Applicant must be able to prove authorization to work in the US as part of Form I-9 verification.
