SSD Firmware Designer

Direct Hire

Savage, MN

SSD firmware development, NVMe


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.

These positions would form a team to support a cloud storage company who is creating their own SSD storage device, based on a Third-Party SSD Controller SOC and a Third-Party base firmware design.  The team would be responsible for adapting the base firmware in significant manners to support the needs of the cloud storage company, and team members would comprise the sole customer-facing “interface/communication channel” supporting the storage company’s internal product.  The staffing for this project is expected to be needed within approximately 3 months.

• Key Qualifications

• Target Candidate
