Do you want to build new products based on brilliant ideas? Join the new RAN Incubator unit! As a part of the Ericsson strategy to strengthen R&D a new RAN Incubator unit is being set up.

You will be a key contributor when it comes to innovative mindset and making sure new methods and skills are tried out and developed.

The setup and responsibility of the RAN-I organization implies that the roles will be cross functional, i.e. you will not only work with systemization, implementation or verification but rather contribute within several tasks depending on the needs.
