Master of Computer Computer Networks and Distributed Systems, Antwerp University
Nokia Bell Labs intern in Advanced Media Access Control in LoRa Networks
Bell Labs is very reputable in the telecommunications field, with diverse portfolio and I am glad to have had my Research Internship here. I had an overview of the lab environment, the Bell Labs team, the organizational structure, working culture which would be useful for me as I intend to look for job opportunities in a multinational company after my graduation.
Master in Mathematical Engineering, KUL
Nokia Bell Labs intern in Machine learning for Broadband Wireline Access
It was a great experience to be involved with research on real-world problems. While I was here, I had the feeling that my ideas and contribution were valued and that I was not “just an intern”. I also learned a lot from colleagues with different backgrounds than me.
Attended the internship before starting his Master in Computer Science this fall, KUL
IP intern in Customer Network Disruptive Testing
It is quite interesting to see the things you know and heard about during your education happening in an industrial context for the first time. What strikes me most is the sheer scale of things: the projects Nokia’s employees work on are far bigger than I could imagine beforehand and simply too vast to be entirely understood by any single person or team. Although different departments, and even people within these departments, have very diverse ways of working, everything happens in an organized and efficient fashion. I also consider the international aspect (colleagues from all over the world in Antwerp, communicating with software developers in offices abroad) to be quite enriching, as well as the possibility to have some in-depth conversations with employees.

R&D Engineer – Nuage Networks, joined after graduation in 2015
I am proud to be part of Nuage Networks, as it is at the fore-front of SDN innovation in both data centers (clouds) and wide-area networks. The multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural teams situated across different sites enabled me to learn and grow by expanding my horizon at both professional and personal front. I also appreciate Nokia’s culture, in particular the flexible work-hours and socializing events which are making my working experience even more intriguing and thriving.
Master in Civil Engineering in Computer Science, Ghent University
Software Development Engineer – IP/Optical Network team, joined after graduation in 2010
I am part of the software development team and together with the quality assurance team we have to deliver a high quality product where performance and scalability are the main technical challenges. The company offers me the opportunity to learn and develop new skills. In a few years I have gained a broad experience and knowledge on network protocols and OS development, also thanks to the interactions with my colleagues.
Master in Telecommunication Engineering, University of Valladolid (Spain)
IP DSLAM Test Automation Engineer – Fixed Networks, joined in 2015
After a few years working in France, I joined Nokia. As a member of the software team I can contribute to the design of the DSLAM product while I continue to improve my knowledge in telecommunication protocols. Being part of Nokia means working in an international environment where gender diversity is the key ingredient: I am very proud to see more and more young women like me joining engineering positions.
Master in Electrical Engineering, Université Catholique de Louvain-La-Neuve
ASIC/FPGA design and validation engineer – Fixed Networks, joined after graduation in 2015
Working in the ASIC/FPGA team gives me the opportunity to impact millions of individuals with the chips we develop. Shortly after starting this new job, I was already entrusted with the development of a new feature required by an important Internet Provider. During a working day I can be either designing, implementing or lab-testing new features we develop together with our colleagues based in USA and China. On the same day, I can also be found supporting software and test teams when they face issues with our chips. The diversity of things you can do at Nokia is huge and I am sure it would be a perfect match for anybody willing to take part in the challenges of tomorrow’s worldwide connectivity.
Master in Electrical Engineering, Novi Sad University (Serbia) and PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Ghent University
Business Manager – Fixed Networks, joined in 2014
After two years as a business developer manager, I recently moved to marketing. As a marketing manager I work now with product managers, pre-sales, sales and various marketing organizations to plan and execute the marketing strategy and expand Nokia business. My career at Nokia is very exciting and dynamic. I particularly love the possibilities of training and career development in the company, flexible working hours and home-work balance. Moreover, diversity of people in Nokia and many networking opportunities are making the life in the company vibrant and enjoyable. Nokia was definitely a good choice for me!
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering – Microelectronics, KU Leuven
Analog ASIC Researcher – Nokia Bell Labs
At the end of my PhD in 2015, I was interested in pursuing a career in the research field and I was looking for something similar to what I had been doing during my studies. The variety of researcher jobs proposed was a clear attraction point for me to join the organization. I am impressed by the technical diversity of the team: researchers with background in digital or analog hardware, software and algorithms are working together every day. I also like and enjoy the various cultures present in my team.
Nokia Bell Labs is one of a kind: what we are inventing has a high probability to be developed further by the Nokia R&D teams. I feel rewarded by what I do: the results of my research are generating impact on the future technologies.
