Our Exciting Opportunity !


We are now looking for a Product Owner to contribute to the evolution of the development of the Ericsson Intelligent Automation Platform and Automation Applications (rApps) that enable higher operation efficiency, improved network performance and better subscriber experience.

Our ambition is to establish an OSS ecosystem, which will be the foundation of an open multi-vendor automation solution for Intelligent RAN Automation for both purpose-built RAN (Radio Access Networks) and cloud-RAN.


We are embracing a start-up mentality to deliver our automation product that delights customers, breaks the complexity of network management, and brings innovation at record speed!


This open app ecosystem will also facilitate customers' contributions that will realize their own specific use cases.

This is an opportunity to work on a major R&D program and be part of the most disruptive technology areas today. You will meet, learn and leverage concepts of automation, self-learning, cloud-native microservices and dev-ops development models. The development will include creation of a cloud native platform for micros-services capable of deployment on multiple clouds with lab engagements starting during 2021.

About half of the development teams are located in Budapest and responsible for several microservices. Our multinational organization with its diverse culture supports a creative environment for innovation and creates products based on ideas from engineers — just like you. Besides software development, we are in close collaboration with supporting operations units in Ericsson with our Site Reliability Engineers within our teams.
