The Ericsson Eurolab
The Eurolab in Herzogenrath, close to the city of Aachen, is one of Ericsson’s largest research and development centers in Europe. Founded in 1991, we have 600 research and development engineers today, working on the latest 5G and soon 6G releases of mobile network technologies – always with the benefit for consumers and industries in mind.
We are a truly international R&D organization. With employees from more than 40 countries, we have established an intercultural workplace, where we value diversity, inclusion and mutual respect as our basis for excellence and creativity. Our company language is English.
Our people have an intrinsic curiosity and passion for technology and how we can apply it to our products and solutions to provide the best of the best mobile networks to our customers. As technology is changing and transforming all the time, our competence needs, and our work keeps changing as well. But that’s cool, because we like to get challenged as this provides the basis for our success and innovation.
Our teams have fully adopted a lean and agile way of working and mindset, in everything we do. That allows us to adapt fast to the ever-new market needs and developments.
Customer-centric technology innovation
Customer-driven and employee-generated innovation has been on the agenda of Eurolab since its beginning. One key platform to strengthen the dialogue with customers and showcase our innovative spirit thereby are the annual Ericsson Innovation Days. The ever-growing customer interest in this event has led to a record high of visitors at its 10th anniversary in 2019.
"State of the Art" software development and technologies
Cloud-native application design has become a standard practice in the telecom industry, due to the major efficiency gains it can provide, particularly in terms of speeding up software deployments of new features. We at Eurolab have actively explored the potential of cloud-native computing in the telecom industry, as well as joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) a few years ago.
Microservices form – as in many other scenarios – the building blocks of a cloud-native application. These microelements are characterized by a wide reuse in various products, some are even mandatory, so that the same “look and feel” and a common north bound interface (NBI) are delivered to customers.
Every microservice is meant to be used by multiple applications and shall be open to collaboration. Developers can contribute to an existing service, to fix bugs or to implement new features.
The open-source community projects are Software (SW) projects towards which Ericsson has regular contribution activities. Those contributors are closely linked to the development teams of Ericsson and work on a commonly defined purpose.
Continuous learning and employee development
Our people are at the heart of contributing to technology that improves people’s lives. Being part of our global team means being able to shape the future of technology, such as enabling and empowering 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Cybersecurity, Machine Learning and Smart Manufacturing; just to name a few.
We aspire to be the leader in the area we operate and innovate in. Never-ending curiosity, continuous learning and constant individual upskill & reskill is our foundation to remain competitive as a company.
For us, learning is a habit – we learn every day: by ourselves, as well as from and with others. To nurture this habit, we provide all our employees with access to a vast range of learning offerings on dedicated platforms where Ericsson internal, but also external material is stored, which can be browsed by all our employees.
Continuous learning and personal development is at the heart of our People strategy. Join us and become a part of #TeamEricsson!
