Technical leader to Radio Software Control System

Job Description

Date: Jan 7, 2020

We are now seeking a technical leader and highly skilled developer for the link handling for the Linux based radio software control system. We are looking for you with very good skills in Linux and Ethernet switching. If you also have good leadership skills, then we welcome the opportunity to meet you!


Job summary:
We are now looking for a strong technical leader and highly skilled developer for the link handling (also known as IQ path) in the auxiliary control system (XCS) for the radio products. Your role will include strategy work, system design, SW design and verification, trouble shooting in target environment and product documentation. Knowledge about Ethernet switching is a must. Knowledge about Linux, driver development and SW close to HW is required.



Business Area Networks: where 5G was born! We’re a global team of approx. 26 000 in 93 countries, with 126 nationalities represented. About half of us work in R&D, approx. 6 000 in Group Supply and 5 000 in Service Area Networks. Together we create future-proof, scalable network architectures in an industry that is constantly on the move. Our approach is simple: we build solutions that empower our customers to meet tomorrow’s demands. 5G is happening now, with the first commercial launches implemented today. 


We provide the SW platform for radio products also known as the auxiliary control system (XCS) which is a Linux based control system. In addition, we work with link handling, internally referred to as RICR (Radio Interface Control Remote), controlling the link between the baseband unit and radio called CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface), also known as C1. The interface between the baseband and the new 5G radios is using CPRI over Ethernet, also known as C2. Besides that, there are several other links involved in the traffic flow between higher level of network products and the radio antenna.

We are in an intense phase, due to 5G development, with many new products in the pipeline. There is a demand for quality, flexibility and understanding of HW and SW. It also means working with skilled colleagues in an inspiring environment.

We can offer a rich number of opportunities in an everyday learning, creative and challenging atmosphere where Kista, Stockholm, is our base, but where the world is our arena. We also have a close corporation with development of Radio products in Ottawa, Beijing, Nanjing, Chengdu, Lund and Zagreb.

• You will drive strategic technical leadership in the radio link handling
• Co-operating with other Ericsson units for both HW and SW
• Develop and test high quality products
