The candidate will review 3GPP reference specs and write C/C++ software as well as refactor the IMS and EPC network element code into cloud friendly open source microservices.

The position will contribute to the team by designing, documenting, and programming using C/C++ the OpenIMS and OpenEPC network elements. As part of this work the position will execute continuous integration, continuous deployment (CI/CD), while leveraging DevOps best practices. The position also requires the creation of APIs and service integration techniques, software decomposition and conversion to cloud native/friendly micro services. The position will provide troubleshooting and triage of problem reports, resolutions, and escalate as required.
