Job Description

Date: Mar 10, 2020

Location:  Austin, Texas

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.


Our Exciting Opportunity:

The BBI organization provides the software platform and toolset for Ericsson's Proprietary DSP Architecture. 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 involved in every step of the development lifecycle, starting from proof-of-concept to final deployment. 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!


You will:

  • Contribute to static and dynamic code analysis tools tailored to Ericsson proprietary hardware.
  • Write code in C++.
  • Work on customizing and extending the Clang/LLVM compiler framework.
  • Work on auxiliary tasks like application integration, build scripts, platform code development, and user education.


To be successful in the role, you must have:

  • A Bachelor's in Computer Science or Computer Engineering. Master's preferred.
  • At least 5 years of C/C++ development experience.
  • Knowledge of compiler development based on the Clang/LLVM framework.
  • Knowledge of C semantics. Our users (wireless application developers) write code in a dialect of the C programming language and an understanding of C semantics is crucial.
  • The ability to understand programming language specifications such as the C standard.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • An agile, customer-focused mindset combined with a can-do attitude that borders on quixotic.


You might also have:

  • Worked with static and dynamic code analysis tools such as Clang Static Analyzer, Clang-Tidy and Thread/Memory/Address Sanitizers.
  • Worked in a Git/Gerrit and Jenkins based continuous integration (CI) flow.
