Senior Software Engineer - AI Platforms (Product Development -Global AI Accelerator India)

Job Description

Date: Jun 5, 2020

About Ericsson: 


Ericsson is one of the leading providers of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to service providers. We enable the full value of connectivity by creating game-changing technology and services that are easy to use, adopt, and scale, making our customers successful in a fully connected world. Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Ericsson is proud of its global presence across 100+ countries and market areas. With a strong focus on innovation, we possess 49 thousand registered patents and a global strength of over 95 thousand competent professionals. We also take pride in supporting networks that cater to a capacity of 40 percent of the world’s mobile traffic, thereby connecting more than 2.5 billion subscribers and counting. We are a world leader in the rapidly changing environment of communications technology – by providing hardware, software, and services to enable the full value of connectivity. 


Exciting Opportunity: 

It will be practically impossible for human brains to understand how to run and optimize next generation of wireless networks, i.e., 5G networks with distributed edge compute, that will drive economic and social transformation for all aspects of society.  Machine Learning (ML) and other Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies will be vital for us to handle this opportunity. We are setting up a Global AI Accelerator (GAIA) in the US, Sweden and India, with 300 experts, to fast-track our strategy execution. 

We do rapid and iterative development of validated minimum viable solutions addressing these needs. This includes working with petabytes of 4G/5G-networks, IoT and exogenous data, and proposing/selecting/testing predictive models, recommendation engines, anomaly detection systems, statistical models, deep learning, reinforcement learning and other machine learning systems. 

Ericsson is now looking for Senior Software Engineer – AI Platform to significantly expand its global team for AI acceleration for our groups in Chennai and Bangalore. 

Do you have in depth understanding of building AI Platforms? 

Do you want to apply and extend those skills to solve real complex problems? 

Then, you do want to join Ericsson’s global team of Engineers pushing the technology frontiers to automate, simplify and add new value through large scale systems and services. 


Role Summary: 

As a Senior Software Engineer – AI Platforms, you will build and deploy AI/ML Services and Systems, enabling AI Applications Development and Production deployment with focus on scaling, monitoring and performance.  

The AI Platform unit is designing, engineering, operating, and maintaining a core system that delivers AI/ML Services and Systems, e.g. CI/CD, data exploration notebooks (Jupyter), ML model development and deployment, workflow engines, and ML frameworks (i.e. TensorFlow) for easy consumption by Ericsson products and services. 

The AI Platform covers infrastructure capacity and tools for all AI/ML project and system needs within GAIA. The main approach is to integrate/extend existing private and public cloud infrastructures, and to base the toolbox components on open source software. The deployed environments are heterogeneous, so multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and WAN networking are also key technology areas.  

In this role, you are expected to be a very hands-on leader, functioning as an individual contributor, as well as leading others. 


Key Responsibilities: 


  • Develop/integrate/automate a core AI/ML software environment, in close collaboration with data scientist and product developers 

  • Operationalize and extend open source software components, covering the entire ML model life-cycle, including e.g. data transformation, model development, deployment, monitoring, re-training, security. 

  • Collaborate with product development teams and partners in Ericsson Businesses to industrialize a platform for machine learning models and solutions as part of Ericsson offerings including providing code, workflows and documents 

  • Work with GAIA projects and development teams to identify needs and requirements for AI/ML tools and infrastructure resources. 

  • Evaluate and plan capacity of CPU, GPU, memory, storage, and networking resources to balance cost versus desired productivity and performance 

  • Develop essential automation scripts and tooling to help quality assurance, maintenance, migration, and cost-control of infrastructure deployments. 

  • Manage communication, planning, collaboration and feedback loops with business stakeholders. 

  • Model the business problem statement into AI/ML problem. 

  • Contribute to IPR creation for Ericsson in AI/ML 

  • Lead functional and technical analysis within Ericsson businesses and for strategic customers to understand MI-driven business needs and opportunities 

  • Lead studies and creative usage of new and/or existing data sources. Work with Data Architects to leverage existing data models and build new ones as needed.  

  • Provide MI Competence build-up in Ericsson Businesses and Customer Serving Units 

  • Develop new and apply/extend existing, concepts, methodologies, techniques for cross functional initiatives
