Senior Lab Engineer

Job Description

Date: Jan 20, 2020

Want to 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 Networked Society, there is an ever-increasing number of wireless devices, the range reaching far beyond phones, tablets and laptops. Anything that benefits from being connected will be connected.

With a long history in the wireless business, Ericsson has a large number of patents, and the number of devices gaining advantage from Ericsson’s Intellectual Property will increase tremendously. Our ability to file new implementation patents where infringement can be detected, and to actively work with infringement detection, is essential for successful licensing of our intellectual property.

Ericsson’s IPR and Licensing organization has a team of technical experts committed to support the creation and commercialization of the industry’s strongest and most valuable patent portfolio. The team provides technical advice and has its own lab where for instance teardowns and analyses of different wireless devices, including the latest 5G devices, are made with the purpose to find evidence of patent infringements.

We are now strengthening the team with a senior lab engineer. The person in our minds has a proven background from active work in an electronics product development lab and has a strong interest in wireless devices and an insight in how wireless devices work and communicate with the network.


BA Technologies & New Businesses

Innovation is at our core, and Ericsson ONE is where new, game-changing ideas are brought to life.
