Our Exciting Opportunity Offers Work Life Balance!

The continuous traffic growth in an all communicating world specially 5G NR advance services such as, Smart Grid, Process Automation Monitoring, Autonomous Vehicles, Mission-critical Public Safety applications, Low-latency enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Augmented Reality, Discrete Automation and Intelligent Transport Systems leads to an increased demand for QoS treatment in wireless access. The 5G RAN SW shall enable innovative 5G services. Ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) in NR shall support new applications that have strict reliability and latency requirements such as augmented/virtual reality, industrial automation, and autonomous vehicles. New business in local and wide area networks lead to an increased need for evolving the QoS architecture which has a direct impact on User Plane Control DL scheduler.

UPC DL Scheduler is one of the domains within the Ericsson baseband SW architecture. The position has the overall responsibility for the implementation and architectural readiness of the UPC DL Scheduler to cater for the expected roadmap for new NR QoS use cases and Network Slicing as described above. Best knowledge in domain and deep understanding of the whole Baseband SW/HW architecture is mandatory to optimal work in this role and contributes to the QoS verification strategy, especially on code and sub-Module / Domain level, including interaction/co-existence with other features. The daily work involves high level decision making and affects hundreds of Ericsson employees across the world.

You will:

  • Actively engaged in the architecture definition for UPC DL and proactively drive the implementation of UPC DL Scheduler functions for Quality of Service
  • Responsible for UPC domain product development roadmap, develop future-proof SW for UPC.
  • Analyzing and proposing new solutions/improvements in the domain to ensure efficient implementation.
  • Define and carry out the realization of SW design principles in UPC domain, including domain design rules, test strategy and competence development plan for the domain.
  • Actively participate of Ericsson EMCA design forums with insight on both SW and HW requirements
  • Ensure long term architecture guidelines are considered
