Enter this Mobile Apps contest to win an ipad/join Bell Labs India as a Research Engi
Ready for a job that lets you innovate and build cool new applications?
Desire to win an ipad?
We are looking for research engineers who are passionate about building novel, attractive and scalable applications/services on mobile hand-sets.
We want our selection process to be fun, intuitive and also reflect our work culture. So the first phase is a Mobile Apps contest to shortlist the right talent! This contest is a forum to express your creativity and skills and in the process win an opportunity to win an ipad and also join Bell labs, India as a Research engineer.
Please find the JD and interview process after the contest info.
There are three Mobile App options. You can select one of these.
For detailed guidelines, go to Bell labs, India
1. Build a ‘1-click’ photo-sharing app
100s of Millions of mobile users in India have phones with a camera, but is there a simple app that lets people share photos fast with their friends easily? (MMS is too expensive, slow for most, and how many have Picasa/Flickr accounts?). Design an app that makes it happen!
2. Build a configurable-privacy enabled ‘nearby’ friend finder app
Several location-based friend finder apps are already there in the app market. We want you to design/build an app with similar functionality, but the differentiator being that the app should involve minimal revelation of location information of mobile users. Location information should be revealed to a friend, only when the friend is within a configurable ‘vicinity zone’. You get brownie points, if you can design techniques by which such functionality (or an approximation) can be realized, without the back-end server getting to know the GPS coordinates of the mobile users.
3. Build a mobile lifelog app
The concept of lifelogging, i.e. recording, archiving and visualizing all information in one’s life has been around for some time. We want you to build a mobile lifelog app that passively monitors and collects the traces of call-logs, sms, images/videos (captured from the phone) and GPS coordinates in the form of events and reports them back to a back-end server. The server provides Web APIs/service to graphically visualize this information. The server also facilitates posting some of these interesting events on Facebook as wall posts.
Contest closes by Dec 15th, 2010. We evaluate submissions on a first come first serve basis. So send in your submissions as soon as you are ready.

We are looking for highly motivated, high-caliber software engineers to become part of the advanced prototyping group of the Applications Department of Bell Labs India, Alcatel-Lucent. The charter of the advanced prototyping group is to work with researchers in building systems that take research ideas from a conception stage to products that are ready to be launched in the market. Given that the Applications Department’s focus is in developing innovative services and applications for emerging markets where the mobile handset is a predominant device, we are seeking individuals who have expertise in building mobile applications served by scalable back-end systems.
