The Polish R&D Ericsson center will employ another 350 people.
The Swedish concern intends to employ 350 more people in them soon - already more than 1,700 people work in R&D centers in Łódź and Kraków.
This year, Ericsson is looking for people responsible for the development of mobile technologies, including programmers, system architects, testers, and project managers. Today, together with the Mayor of the City of Łódź, a conference was held on the development plans of Ericsson's R&D center.
'We are located in Poland, but we work globally, creating project teams with specialists from 20 more Ericsson R&D centers around the world. In our R&D Center in Łódź and Kraków, we will employ people with experience in the telecommunications sector.
In our projects, we use solutions based on C ++, Java, .Net, Erlang and Python technologies, as well as Golang, Groovy, or Cloud technology. For teams working on the development of networks from 2G to 6G, we accept new programmers, testers, system architects, as well as work coordinators such as Scrum Master or line manager. Trainers and technical leaders who will help in designing innovative solutions will also find their place in the team. Ericsson is investing heavily in research and development, 17% of its turnover was allocated to this goal last year - said Stefan Znarowski, the new head of Ericsson's R&D center in Kraków and Łódź.
Currently, engineers from the Polish R&D center of Ericsson are working not only on the most modern generations of networks in the 4G and 5G standards but also support the still functioning 2G networks, responsible for communication systems for phone calls or sending SMS.
'With 2G, 3G, and 4G, we are already at an advanced stage, where mainly critical improvements are needed. In turn, 5G from the software side needs even more research and development of solutions that will allow the implementation of specific functionalities. We are also starting work on 6G in Łódź and Kraków. We deal with the full life cycle of software for each generation of networks, 'we read in the company's announcement.
Poland makes a major contribution to the construction of the fifth-generation network not only thanks to Ericsson's R&D engineers in Kraków and Łódź, but also thanks to the production of 5G devices in Tczew. Ericsson in Poland, together with the Łódź SEZ, cooperates with the academic community, start-ups, enterprises and telecommunications operators to enable the first industries in Poland to implement new products and services based on 5G technology.
