Are you looking to be challenged to work on cutting edge software technology for cloud management? Do you want to be able to work with the top minds at IBM? Do you want to potentially present your summer findings to the CEO of the company? Are you interested in full time work that allows you to work directly with customers? Do you want to help write user interfaces that will make our clients more productive?

Then IBM wants to talk to you.

Come learn about exciting opportunities we have for full time job positions in IBM Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure Division, starting in January 2014, as well as our exciting Extreme Blue internship, highlighted below.


What is Extreme Blue?

The program is IBM's top internship program. The Extreme Blue internship experience combines great talent and cutting edge technology to drive innovation.

Through the program, interns have submitted more than 500 patent disclosures and have made more than sixty contributions to the open source community. They helped create solutions for key clients and bring-to-market the next generation of IBM products. Not bad for just 12 weeks of work.

Unlike other intern programs that may relegate you to work on outdated technology, the Extreme Blue teams work on leading technology that helps grow your skills and evolve you into a more attractive candidate in the technology field. Interns in this high-performance environment get to roll up their sleeves and work with "hot" technologies such as OpenStack, Cloud Computing, Data Analytics, Virtualization, and Web Services.

Extreme Blue teams are like mini-businesses that must solve a problem or create a solution for a client. The interns work in small project teams that include business and technical students, along with IBM mentors. Each Extreme Blue team is part of a larger lab environment that includes approximately five other intern teams and a dedicated staff. This combination creates a team dynamic that fosters collaboration and helps interns create both a business and technical case for a project while setting aggressive goals to ensure the end deliverable is extreme enough to survive a competitive marketplace.

What is IBM Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure?

Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure solutions, including Tivoli Software, as well as Maximo, Netcool, TRIRIGA, Endpoint Manager and SmartCloud service management software, enable organizations of all sizes and industries to run smarter, more efficiently and with greater agility.
