RAN Subject Matter Expert (with RIC Background)

Are you a seasoned RAN expert with a strong grasp of RAN Intelligent Controllers (RIC)? Do you enjoy translating your knowledge into innovative software solutions? If so, this RAN Subject Matter Expert (SME) role with a focus on RIC is the perfect opportunity for you!

We’re seeking a highly motivated and experienced individual to join our team and play a pivotal role in driving the deployment and optimization of RIC technology.


  • Serve as a technical authority on all aspects of RAN technologies (including LTE and 5G) with a deep specialization in RIC architecture, interfaces, and functionalities.
  • Lead the development and implementation of RIC applications (xApps/rApps) utilizing your software development skills to address network performance and optimization challenges.
  • Collaborate effectively with internal and external stakeholders, including engineers, vendors, and operators, to define and implement RIC use cases.
  • Leverage your analytical expertise to identify opportunities for RIC-based optimization by analyzing network data.
  • Develop and maintain comprehensive technical documentation related to RIC deployments.
  • Stay at the forefront of the industry by keeping abreast of the latest advancements in RIC technology and actively participate in relevant standardization efforts.

Skills & Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field (Master’s degree preferred).
  • Minimum 5+ years of experience working with RAN technologies, including extensive knowledge of LTE and 5G.
  • Demonstrated expertise in RIC architecture, interfaces (Open RAN ALLIANCE – O-RAN) protocols (e.g., O1, O2), and their application within the RAN ecosystem.
  • Proven experience with software development methodologies (e.g., Agile) and proficiency in at least one high-level programming language relevant to network automation (e.g., Python, Java).
  • Experience with containerization technologies (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes) is a significant plus.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills are essential.
  • Excellent communication, collaboration, and interpersonal skills are required to navigate diverse team environments.
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, working independently and collaboratively as needed.

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with integrating machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) for network optimization using RIC.
  • Familiarity with RAN performance management tools and KPIs.
  • Experience with scripting languages (e.g., Python scripting) for automation tasks.

In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Be at the leading edge of a rapidly evolving technology that is revolutionizing mobile networks.
  • Develop innovative software solutions that directly impact network performance and user experience.
  • Collaborate with a talented team of engineers and developers who share your passion for innovation.
  • Make a significant contribution to the company’s success by shaping the future of mobile network optimization.

If you are a RAN expert eager to leverage your software development skills and propel RIC technology forward, we encourage you to apply!
