At IBM, work is more than a job – it’s a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you’ve never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world’s most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.
**Your Role and Responsibilities**
The Extreme Blue internship experience combines great talent and cutting edge technology to drive innovation. Through the program, interns have filed over 600 patent disclosures, helping to create solutions for clients and bring to market the next generation of IBM products.
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, supported by IBM mentors. Each Extreme Blue team is part of a larger lab environment that includes multiple 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.
Unlike other intern programs that may relegate a student to work on outdated technology, Extreme Blue interns work on leading technology that helps grow your skills and make you a more attractive candidate in the technology field.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 like AI, cloud, mobile & analytics.
The following skills are in particularly high demand:
+ Big Data analytics
+ Natural Language Processing & Machine Learning
+ User Interface Design & Development
+ Cloud computing, including container technology
+ Mobile development
