Ericsson Orchestration Experienced Developer

Job Description

Date: Jan 3, 2019

Job summary

Ericsson Cloud Manager (ECM) is a cloud management system that handles the life-cycle management of virtual applications. It also enables the creation, orchestration, activation, and monitoring of services running on virtualized IT and programmable network resources at consistent levels of quality. With ECM, cloud resources are no longer confined to a single data center, but rather are spread throughout the network, to help improve both internal operations and service quality. ECM also provides a secure GUI that enables provider administrators, tenant administrators, subtenant administrators and tenant/subtenant users to create, manage and monitor their virtual resources. ECM is now evolving into the Ericsson Orchestrator (EO), with separate modules for Common VNFM (Virtual Network Functions Manager), NFVO (Network Functions Virtualization Orchestrator), WANO (Wide Area Network Orchestrator) and SO (Service Orchestrator) including network slicing support for 5G networks. We are transforming the product into a cloud native offering, by breaking it down to microservices, containerizing and migrating them to Kubernetes. Orchestration built on this new platform will provide significant improvement of the install and upgrade experience, support for Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD), facilitate one-track development and use of components (3PP as well as inner source) from the Application Development Platform (ADP), closed loop service assurance and analytics support, increased compliance to ETSI standards and Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP) support, among others.

The Ericsson Orchestration Program is multi-national, having teams contributing from Ireland, Hungary, Italy, Sweden, Ukraine and India. We are now adding a new team for the EO evolution work focusing on NFVO and also strengthening the existing three teams in Budapest, Hungary. We are looking for experienced Java developers to work in one of these teams in close collaboration with other teams, developers, testers, product owners and system engineers.
