Ericsson's Polish R&D centre, located in Łódź and Kraków in Poland, plans to expand its team of over 1,700 people by 350 new vacancies over the next year.
- To teams working on the development of networks from 2G to 6G we are recruiting more programmers, testers, system architects, as well as people coordinating work such as Scrum Master or line manager. The team will also include coaches and technical leaders who will help to design innovative solutions', says Stefan Znarowski, the new head of Ericsson R&D centre in Kraków and Łódź.
Currently, engineers from Ericsson's Polish R&D centre are dealing not only with 4G and 5G technologies. There are still older generation mobile networks that also need support. 2G is practically immortal and it is thanks to it that one can make voice calls or send text messages.
As Stefan Znarowski from Ericsson emphasises, the biggest difference in software for each G standard is its life cycle: with 2G, 3G and 4G we are already at an advanced stage, where mainly critical corrections are needed. In contrast, 5G on the software side needs even more research and solution development to implement specific functionalities.
- We are also starting work on 6G in Lodz and Krakow. We are involved in the full software life cycle for each generation of the network - adds Znarowski.
