What you’ll be doing...

Verizon is at the center of the ecosystem architecture for 5G, Intelligent Edge, and Multi-Access Edge Compute (MEC) enabling applications such as massive IoT, augmented reality, virtual reality, next-gen connected vehicles, aerial drone solutions, and more.

This is a technical product development position within the 5G technology area, with a focus on building technology solutions for end-customers using Verizon’s 5G network. In this role, the candidate will work with internal technology groups and external innovation teams in order to develop new technologies to test on our 5G network.

The candidate will formulate, prototype and communicate recommendations on which solutions Verizon should pursue from a technology point of view, help develop a partnership with external companies, work with our solution architects to ideate and code trial scenarios, and work with potential customers to test our prototype solutions. The candidate will be able to develop software prototypes in a way that can be transitioned into a product environment, where such code would then be productized and supported, while the candidate moves on to new development prototypes. At times, the candidate will need to work alongside customers, assisting them in the usage and testing of the prototype.

The ideal candidate needs to have a strong technical background working with cutting edge technologies such as AR/VR, IoT, drones, self-driving cars, and a good sense of technologies and innovations coming out of incubators, universities and other innovation environments.  The candidate must also have experience with modern software development techniques and tools.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Work with internal technology teams to understand their products/platforms to potentially trial them in conjunction with 5G.

  • Be the liaison with the entrepreneurial community to be aware of startups developing compelling technology to trial using 5G.
