Technical Specialist of Mobile handset and IoT Devices

Job Description

Date: Dec 13, 2019


Want to deep-dive into the latest hi-tech, explore the inside of 5G Phones & IoT and be a part of the coolest team at Ericsson?


Then you are probably interested in joining our Technical Analysis/Reverse Engineering team in the IPR & Licensing organization!


In the team, we are committed to supporting the creation and commercialization of the industry’s strongest and most valuable patent portfolio. We have our own dedicated lab where technical analyses of mobile devices, including 5G devices, are performed with the aim of detecting patent infringements.

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.


BA Technologies & New Businesses

Innovation. Uncompromised. 
New technologies are changing the way we interact and communicate—with one another and with the devices and machines that enrich our lives, transform industries and create a world of possibilities. At Technologies and New Businesses, we venture beyond the traditional boundaries of Ericsson’s core business to identify and invest in future game-changing growth bets by helping our innovators and intrapreneurs test and scale their ideas into viable businesses.

Our current businesses are targeting high growth markets where our technology is relevant, e.g. Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing, IoT connectivity, connected vehicles, security and edge computing. Innovation is at our core, and Ericsson ONE is where new, game-changing ideas are brought to life. 

We’re glad you’re here. Stick around, we can’t wait to see what’s next.

We are strengthening our capability and knowledge base with an experienced person to join our team.
