Job Description

Date: Dec 12, 2018

Here’s the deal
As the tech firm that enabled the mobile internet connectivity around the world, at Ericsson we’ve made it our business to make a mark. Ericsson Packet Core has never had a greater opportunity to drive change; setting the bar for technology to be inclusive and accessible; empowering an intelligent, sustainable and connected world.

We are on a quest, we´ve promised to never stand still; relentlessly innovating to make technology easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to scale. This demands from all our people the creativity to discover, the accountability to deliver and the courage to remove complexity wherever it presents itself. Your commitment to these qualities will always be expected, and never go unnoticed. As a team, we are helping to solve some of society´s most complicated challenges, enabling you to be ‘the person that did that’. 

 

Tech you’ll master
With us at Ericsson Packet Core you’ll be part of the next step in our development of our products. We enable millions of simultaneous connected mobile users while handling traffic from IoT to 4K video in Gbit speeds. All of this in a virtual deployment using containers.

For this you’ll learn to master cutting edge technology in IP networks, distributed real time embedded systems executing in a cloud native container environment.

 

Our office and our terms
The Ericsson office is located at Lindholmen in central Gothenburg, with beautiful scenery and modern facilities. We’re next to Chalmers and the university, with other cutting-edge tech companies as our closest neighbors in a buzzing area. There are plenty of opportunities for learning and networking at Lindholmen Science Park, and there is a wide range of restaurants for your convenience.

You’ll be enjoying all the benefits of a good collective agreement, as well as a personal health account, gyms in the house, and more.

 

The position
Ericsson Packet Core is currently looking for software developers that have knowledge in cloud native technologies and tools, to strengthen the development of our container-based network functions (NF) for 5G. We are looking for developers to the areas: Container-as-a-Service (CaaS), common Operation & Maintenance (O&M) and the common software integration pipeline.

 

We stand at the forefront of Agile software development, using methods and principles like Lean and Scrum. Early customer and stakeholder feedback is a key element in our development process which is based on Continuous Integration SW practices. We rely on team collective responsibility to complete all tasks according to a prioritized backlog. Our teams are cross-functional, self-organizing and highly independent. You’ll be working directly with your Product Owner and stakeholders in a collaborative manner. This requires maturity and a ‘team first’ approach, which we believe is the best way to create great software.

 

The team will design, implement and test the feature, product and system from requirements to production and commercial deployment. We use CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Development) flow and philosophy, with pipelines designed for as-a-Service and to enable DevOps, with fast feedback loops. We believe in test driven development (TDD) and therefor competence in test case development and execution is valuable.
