For as long as Ericsson has existed, we have had the idea to make communication available for all. That communication is a basic human need and for more than 140 years, our ideas, technology and people have changed the world: real turning points that have transformed lives, industries and society as a whole. The advent of 5G and IoT and real-time connectivity – from connected cars to personal wearables to smart grid technology – will fundamentally change our world. It will pull us into an age of advanced machine intelligence, blended virtual and physical realities, and complete network connectivity. We are at the forefront of this change, helping service providers meet expectations today and in the future by focusing on network quality and an evolution path to 5G.

We have over 1000 developers at our Development Centre in Athlone, working on software solutions and applications in Java, Python, JavaScript on the Linux Platform, both on bare metal and in the cloud. We use the latest Agile processes, harnessing the power of Automated Testing, Continuous Delivery and Deployment. Our systems handle terabytes of data…daily.

If you would like your career to truly have a global impact, then we are interested in talking to you. At Ericsson, you’ll have the opportunity to develop software for radio networks around the world while working in a software development team and learning from experienced developers.
