Job Description

Date: Feb 14, 2019


Ericsson and the Baseband Infrastructure (BBI) organization are pleased to announce the opening of a new Software Development Center in the heart of Austin, TX to accelerate the path towards the commercialization of 5G! 


Ericsson is the early leader in bringing 5G to market and our Radio networks are built by a large amount of software systems, all of them with different requirements and characteristics. Some are standardized orchestration SW on COTS and others are specialized SW on proprietary massive parallel hardware executing radio algorithms. They all work together as the distributed brains of mobile internet. These systems make a plethora of fantastic challenges which all shape the learning playground for each of us working here. 


In BBI we provide a SW platform and toolset for EMCA (Ericsson Multi Core Architecture) SW development while focusing on our users and striving to make baseband development awesome. We do that by challenging the status quo and deploying our products continuously.  We believe in highly empowered and self-organized teams that are involved in all steps of development, from pre-study to deployment. Work is performed in close cooperation with our internal Ericsson users and peers. The platform and tools developed are used by several hundred baseband application developers (5G, LTE, WCDMA and GSM) daily and soon also in adjacent domains.  The BBI organization of roughly 200 people, is part of PDU 4G5G and based in Sweden, Canada, Poland and now also in Austin!
