Being a part of The Networked Society means being able to connect with people, opportunities and ideas. Through Uniteam, we give undergraduates the opportunity to start making those connections – by being part of an exciting new team visiting some of the world’s largest technology conferences!
Uniteam students are usually undergraduates studying Computer Science, Engineering Physics or Media Technology. In the summer, you work full-time as an Ericsson intern. For the rest of the year, while on campus, you’re Ericsson Uniteam ambassadors, helping raise our profile as an employer through brand-building and events.
Why is it so exciting?
As a part of Uniteam, you’ll enjoy some truly memorable experiences. During 2015, we were at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and TM Forum in Nice. Uniteam travelled to both of those events as Ericsson representatives, working as Event Staff in the reception, as well as conducting short surveys of delegates.
Why is it different?
Uniteam is a chance to connect with so many different people. You have so much opportunity to discover more about the international culture of Ericsson, and the global career paths we offer. Throughout the year, you’ll meet customers, top management, account managers, business builders and event staff. You can can meet people from different parts of the company, at all different levels, experiencing our culture and then explaining it in your own words when you get back onto your campus.
Read about our current Uniteam members and their experiences, so you can see what kind of person makes a great Uniteam member. Then, if you’re convinced you’d be the best person on your campus to be our Ericsson ambassador – the person who loves meeting people, hosting events and talking technology – start your application. It could be the first step in a great year!
My name is Matilda Söderholm, and I'm a member of Ericsson UniTeam at Linköping University. I'm 22 years old, and I'm a third year student at the Information Technology programme. Besides being a member of the UniTeam I'm also head of the Pub Committé at the Computer Science student organization. Furthermore I manage the corporate relations at the women's organization for computer science students named Donna. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, my favourite cuisine is the Spanish one.
Name: Sanne Ingvarsson
Education: Medical engineering at Linköpings University
Previous involvements: Project manager at LINK2015, a career fair for students within IT and software development
Weird fact about me: Once I worked as a cattle musterer and really enjoyed that lifestyle
My name is Per Welander and I'm currently studying my third year of medical engineering at the Institute of Technology at Linköpings University. Alongside of my studies I have been involved in different student organization at the university. I'm currently a part of LINK that is Linköpings largest student career fair in IT and computer technology. I have also been a part of Y6, we arranged events for the whole university but primarily for the students studying applied physics and electrical engineering.
I have always liked new challenges and to learn new things. When I get a lot of spare time I try to go skiing or surfing. I have been surfing the west coast of Sweden for 9 years, surfing the sharky waters in South Africa and the warm waters of the Caribbean! Nowadays I mainly surf the internet to learn new things and to find new challenges.
23 years young, outgoing and always trying to keep a positive attitude. Currently attending my third year at Chalmers, studying the bachelor of software engineering. I have been involved in numerous activities at my university but the one thing that I’ve been dedicated to the most is my participation of the business relation committee at my department, called ArmIT. It was there I first got in contact with Ericsson.
I started out working as a mentor/teacher at Ericsson, with the main aim to inspire children for the world of technology. This is something that we did in collaboration with Universuem naming it “Digital Lab”. I’ve also done two internships at Ericsson during the summer time and also continued some of that work during the rest of the year.
My name is Rebecka Reitmaier, I'm 21 years old and grew up in Gothenburg Sweden. 2014 I began studying at the civil engineering program Information Technology at Chalmers. There I got the possibility of an extra job for Ericsson. In January 2015, I was hired to be a student mentor for Digital Lab, it is a collaboration between Ericsson and Universeum whose purpose is to teach children to program once a week.
During the summer of 2015 I got a summer internship at Ericsson where I had two tasks, one was to continue the development of a web application that would visualize how the communication worked between nodes at Ericsson. The other task was to make a series of video tutorials in Scratch (a visual programming language) to make it easier for children to learn programming.
At Chalmers I have been in the IT sections committee that arranges parties and dinners for one year. It is a committee with eight people and we host dinners for around 100 people and we also host the nightclub Gasquen. There I had the responsibility for all aspects of beverage, for example ordering and serving. I am now in the sports committee, there we arrange everything from running evenings to football for the sections members.
Who is Alexandra? An engaged student who loves challenges. I’ve been involved in a total of nine different projects and events during my three years at KTH. Why? Because I love it! When working and developing with others, solving problems and facing major challenges, I learn so much about myself and how to work as a team; something that a textbook cannot give me. I receive information and experience I can benefit through my whole life. When I started college everything was new. The way of learning, the people and the fact that I moved out from my parents’ house. It was a big change and so I had a hard time defining the new me and coping with my new life. But as soon as I got involved in these different projects it all cleared and that is why I keep doing it. To never stop developing, to never stop learning new things about myself and others and to never stop having fun!
Why Ericsson? Because Ericsson gives me the opportunity to challenge myself and learn. It gives me the tools I need for growing and thinking forward. It suits my field of study as well as my personality in the way that I can always turn into another direction and try new things.

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
