Compiler Developer

Job Description

Date: Jul 10, 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 adoption of 5G mobile technology. 5G is coming soon, bringing with it exciting possibilities in the Internet-of-Things (IoT), self-driving cars, agriculture and of course, streaming 4K video on smartphones!

 

Ericsson is the early leader in bringing 5G to market and our mobile networks are operated using a number of software systems with different requirements and characteristics. These systems include standardized orchestration software run on commercial off-the-shelf systems as well as signal processing software run on proprietary massively parallel hardware. Together, the software systems serve as the distributed brains of the mobile internet.

 

The BBI organization provides the software platform and toolset for the Ericsson Many-Core Architecture (EMCA). Our platform and tools are used by thousands of baseband application developers (5G, LTE, WCDMA and GSM) and new versions are deployed continuously. We believe in highly empowered and self-organizing teams that are involved in every step of the development lifecycle, starting from proof-of-concept to final deployment. All development is done in close cooperation with our internal Ericsson users and peers. The BBI organization is staffed by roughly 200 people spread across sites in Sweden, Canada, Poland and now in Austin!

 

Job Summary:

 

As a Compiler Developer you will contribute to the design, development, deployment and maintenance of BBI software tailored to proprietary EMCA hardware.
