This is going to be a big year for our Software Campus in Athlone, Ireland. We will hire many Interns, Graduates and experienced  Senior engineers, so I thought I would tell you a little about us. Read on for 4 great things you might not know!

#1: We have end to end responsibility

This means that if your dream in college was to be somewhere where the entire software lifecycle is hosted, then the Ericsson Athlone Software Campus is the place to be. Here, you can truly innovate and your ideas can flourish.

#2: We are diverse

We have over 50 nationalities onsite in Athlone. It’s one of the many things that makes our office a truly special place to be. If you are a Software Engineer, Analyst, or Architect anywhere in Europe (or even further away), and are interested in joining us, we would love to hear from you. It’s the uniqueness you bring when you join that we are delighted to have, and that helps us continue to build the best software in the world. You can learn about Sowmya’s experience or joining us from overseas in the video below.

We are in the best place in Ireland – right at the heart of everything in Athlone! From here, you can do anything. You can enjoy serenity in the countryside, or the hustle-and-bustle of the city , go to the beach, cycle, hike, ski, go horse-riding, golf, water sports– the list is endless!). Best of all, we have a strong ethos of work-life balance, so you will have the opportunity to do all those things. Below is a great video about life in Athlone.

#4: We offer great career advancement

You and your manager will continually work together on a plan to make sure you succeed, either through training, mentoring, special projects, exploring technology trends of other means. You can even take advantage of our scholar program, which includes fee assistance and extra leave for study and exams.
