Microelectronics Design Enablement Manager 2 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (Baltimore, Maryland)
Northrop Grumman Mission Systems is seeking a candidate for the position of Microelectronics Design Enablement Manager in Eastern Region Hardware Engineering within the Mission Systems Sector. The position is located at the Advanced Technology Lab (ATL) - located outside of Baltimore, MD - where we develop discriminating technologies, design, manufacture, and test semiconductor products for internal and commercial production as well as emerging technology programs.
The Microelectronics Design Enablement Manager will be responsible for management activities associated with the deployment of new Process Design Kits (PDKs) and Design Enablement capabilities, ongoing support and continuous improvement of existing capabilities and aspects of microelectronics management related to PDKs. This manager will oversee the work being performed by 8-14 engineers, and will provide staffing for all internal foundry PDKs, both new development and production processes, including but not limited to, Silicon, Compound Semiconductor, and Superconducting.
In addition, this manager will provide staffing for PDK and CAD tool needs in support of enterprise-wide design activity across multiple external on-shore foundry processes such as SiGe, deep sub-micron CMOS, RF CMOS, and compound semiconductors. Members of the team fill the roles of PDK Development, Device Modeling, PCM Creation/Methodology, System Administration, Design Enablement Scripting, Library/PDK Releasing, Onsite Application Engineer and custom EDA Tool Development (beyond scripting).
The work being overseen will be coordinated with microelectronics management on project prioritization and requirement gathering. Responsibilities include estimating cost and schedule for new projects, planning and resource assignment for project activity, ensuring that cost and schedule objectives are met and interfacing with cross-disciplined microelectronics stakeholders to negotiate technical direction and deployment requirements.
The Microelectronics Design Enablement Manager will be responsible for overall PDK/CAD Tool quality and business risk, ensuring a common development framework is followed, and spearheading continuous improvement activities for PDK/CAD Tool capabilities and employee engagement. PDKs and capabilities developed by this team become tools put to use throughout the Northrop Grumman microelectronics community to aid in the execution of business objectives. A background in microelectronics design/enablement is a must and it is expected that the manager will develop additional fabrication domain knowledge over time. Administrative responsibilities include resource management, objectives setting and performance evaluations, approval of employee time charging, employee engagement initiatives, continuous improvement activities to optimize PDK/CAD development processes and capabilities, evaluation of available commercial software offerings, and the configuration control of released capabilities.
Strong leadership and excellent verbal and written communication skills are required.
