Extreme Blue (Technical) Summer Internship 2021
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
Would you like to be part of a creative team, providing a solution to an age-old problem or just changing the world? Yes? Then please read below.
The Extreme Blue Programme is IBM’s World Wide Premier Summer internship for talent and technology, design and business innovation, and is a way to discover new creative solutions to technical challenges. The internship runs for 12 weeks in the Summer. As a technical student, this internship will give you the opportunity to work on an innovative technology project from an outside client or for an internal client. You’ll build on your existing IT skills and learn new ones as well as teach others.
Your role as one of the technical interns in team of 4 will be to build, develop and improve an IT-based solution that meets the customers’ needs. You will have the chance to work with leading edge technologies, be mentored by leading IT Professionals and learn new technologies, craft new applications and put a modern twist on an existing tool/idea.
During your 12 weeks you will present weekly updates to the Hursley Labs Community, learning from the Q&A sessions and improving your ideas as you travel through the 12 weeks. You will find out how IBM and the IT industry work, how IT can contribute too or be used for the good of the community and also learn how to manage real customer projects.
You’ll need to utilise your technical curiosity to design, architect, develop and test your product among your technical peers, while never losing sight of your customers and the end goal.
