Technical Specialist, Device Technology, IPR & Licensing    



Background Highlights & Position Summary

Ericsson is the largest creator and contributor of cellular standardized technology and consequently owns the industry’s strongest portfolio of patents essential to the 3GPP standards. Being a leader in radio infrastructure together with our history from smartphone development and with our ongoing research in device technology results in Ericsson owning a very strong portfolio of implementation patents. Our ability to file new implementation patents where infringement can be detected, and to actively work with infringement detection is essential for licensing our intellectual property and to be successful in litigations.


We are therefore strengthening our capability and knowledge base within the Intellectual Property Rights & Licensing organization with an experienced person in our Technical Analysis/Reverse Engineering team. This team is committed to support in building and commercializing the industry’s strongest and most valuable patent portfolio. In this work we continuously operate across many internal and external organizations, e.g. different companies specialized in technical analyses, our internal licensing and assertion managers, our patent development team and inventors from our research & development organizations. The team has their own dedicated lab where technical analyses of mobile devices, including 5G devices, are performed with the aim of detecting patent infringements.

  • Share your knowledge with colleagues in Ericsson’s IPR & Licensing organization
  • Work with world-class external suppliers of reverse engineering and technical analyses
