Microelectronics Engineer - Entry to Experienced Level

The National Security Agency
Fort Meade, MD 20755
As an Engineering and Physical Science professional, you will use your skills to create the systems and tools that will be used to enhance the operation of intelligence. You will advise, administer and perform scientific projects, such as planning, designing, and constructing specialized equipment, and ensuring adherence to sound engineering and scientific standards and principles. The NSA offers multiple areas of focus for facilities engineers, including computer, architectural, electrical, mechanical, and structural. In addition, we are seeking skills that include computer design, microelectronics, radio frequency design, and systems engineering. Apply your science and engineering skills to protect the nation.",

The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.

With the ever-increasing technological complexities in the world of Microelectronics, we need talented Microelectronics Engineers to be part of our team designing, assembling, testing, and qualifying the next generation of electronics hardware in support of our mission. Our goal is to provide microelectronics services of the highest quality to ensure the success of the Agency's mission.

Microelectronic Engineers utilize electrical, computer, mechanical, and materials engineering knowledge and skills to design, assemble, test, analyze and qualify the next generation of electronics hardware in support of the NSA mission.
