    Ericsson has ~42 positions open right now and more coming. We have a team of incredibly bright software developers of varying ages and experience, who work very well together to create really complex software for core routers. Our Burnaby R&D site was selected as one of the key facilities to build Ericsson's next generation core router technology and we are looking for a few more brilliant minds to enrich our team. If interested, contact me at [masked] or apply online. There are positions that aren’t yet posted, so feel free to send me your resume for more opportunities.

    Founded in 1876, Ericsson is a multinational provider of communications technology and services. We are the world’s largest maker of equipment for building and maintaining mobile telecommunications networks- 33,000 granted patents, 120,000 employees, and located in more than 180 countries.

    We can sponsor too and would be honoured to take 15 min and present our API for developing apps that work with any car.

    Hey! This is my first HackerNest event I'm attending. Should I bring my laptop / code POC's to geek out?

      You can, on occasion some do - but our events are about the social side, meeting new friends, like-minded folk, finding potential partners in crime - it's about leaving the isolation of much our work behind to connect to the community - It's not networking - we think throwing business at strangers with conversations that consist of exchanging taglines about our jobs are weird ---------------- Just come by, have a beer on us and meet awesome people, exchange stories, relax around a group of smart people, rinse and repeat a month later! ------------ Either way, it's awesome to have you, we'll see you soon.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
