RFIC Developer

Job Description

Date: Jul 26, 2019

Ericsson is now heavily investing in the future 5G technology where in-house IC development is key. Accordingly, we will strengthen our RFIC design teams in Sweden (Lund, Kista, Linköping). We are looking for RFIC Design and Validation Engineers, who will work as part of a team developing state-of-the-art integrated RF/mixed-signal transceiver ICs. The teams are responsible for the full IC from the early phases to the final product approval. Sounds interesting? Apply now!


The ideal candidate will have the skills necessary all the way from architectural choices, specification and implementation of IP-blocks to validation of the component in lab. But we are also hiring persons with expertise in only parts of the development flow.


The projects are often driven multi-site. Good cooperation skill and team work is needed.  


We are looking to fill several positions of varying seniority, we are interested in discussing job opportunities with very senior RFIC designers, but also with less experienced RFIC engineers.
