At DNEW there is a PDU named BNEW ICT Development Environment, BID.


The mission for BID is to have an engineering environment that provides best in class time-to-market, cost efficiency and with excellent quality, both for present and future business needs. This will be achieved by enabling flow and transparency, enhance collaboration with aligned way of working as well as reducing cost through infrastructure sharing.


We are now looking for a Continuous Integration Tools Architect that can strengthen the CI/CD domain within BID.


Job description:

A world class Continuous Integration (CI) & Continuous Deployment (CD) machinery using state-of-the-art technology is one of the key enablers for more frequent deliveries with higher product quality to our customers. With an increasing RAN solution complexity with regards to number of different nodes (both traditional nodes and cloud nodes) combined with the ambition to deploy the software in customer networks in a much higher pace than today it is essential to use integration driven development so that SW developers can get faster and more accurate feedback on their code commits.


Building a Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CD) machinery requires using state of the art tools from open source, mixed with own development and integration of tools. The architecture and evolvement of the specific Continuous Integration Tools, as well as how to deploy these seamlessly in the intrinsically complicated legacy CI machinery, is key for the evolvement of the Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment machinery.

The Continuous Integration tools are deployed in a number of existing CI flows that need to be developed and maintained (e.g. 5G Node CI, TN module CI, Radio SW module CI, BBI module CI).


Authority and Responsibility

The Continuous Integration Tools Architect shall drive the architecture and roadmap for the Continuous Integration tools, with a focus on robustness, high level of automation, and high level of observability. The Continuous Integration Tools Architect shall also drive deployment scenarios towards a state-of-the-art Continuous Integration machinery.

He/she shall do this in close cooperation with the users in the RAN Product Development as well as the overall Engineering environment architects.

Cooperation with similar roles within Ericsson (for example other RAN development units, BDGS, Radio development) is of great importance to improve CI & CD as a concept within Ericsson.

Furthermore, the Continuous Integration tools Architect shall see to that the overall design principles of Ericsson are followed, striving towards a modular, interface driven architecture.


Key Qualifications:

  • M.Sc or relevant education on similar level
  • Product development knowledge and Product Lifecycle Management knowledge
