Nokia is a global leader in the technologies that connect people and things. With state-of-the-art software, hardware and services for any type of network, Nokia is uniquely positioned to help communication service providers, governments, and large enterprises deliver on the promise of 5G, the Cloud and the Internet of Things. Serving customers in over 100 countries, our research scientists and engineers continue to invent and accelerate new technologies that will increasingly transform the way people and things communicate and connect.

Within the ION Routing division, our products lead the world in features and technical innovation.  We are #2 in carrier edge routing worldwide, with over 750K+ platforms shipped to over 1000+ customers in 130+ countries.  We lead the industry with the best Network Processor technology (FP4 @ 2.4 Tb/s), QoS, parallel processing, Network Function Virtualization, and product quality.    Products cover the spectrum from small CPE-devices supporting a few low-speed Ethernet links to carrier-class and/or datacenter-class systems supporting terabits of routing capacity.  Our world-leading technology enables us to offer customers 400Gbps and 1Tbps links with unparalleled routing features.  These systems demand specialized software to fully test the hardware prior to product release.  We need a Software Engineer with the proven ability to deliver x86-based embedded systems that do this.

Key Responsibilities / Functions:
  • Design and develop board support and device driver software in collaboration with software, hardware, FPGA, and factory test teams, while following group development processes and procedures, and ensuring code adheres to group guidelines.
  • Test hardware during development, and fix all issues prior to product release.  Work cooperatively with factory teams to implement production test programs and procedures
  • Support customer management teams in resolving field-found problems.

Required Qualifications:   

  • Masters or Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, or Computer Engineering with 5+ years of related and recent experience.
  • Experience in C/C++ in an x86 embedded processor environment is essential, using collaborative s/w development tools, in both VxWorks and Linux OS.
