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
This position resides in Markham, ON and is a 16 month work term commencing in May 2024. It is mandatory that all applicants are enrolled in full-time studies at a post-secondary institution and returning to full-time studies upon completion of the work term.

IBM Automation is currently looking for a Software Developer intern to join our global development team building the next generation of AI-infused, cloud-native management tools for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

As a Software Developer intern on the CI/CD team, you will be part of a multi-disciplinary squad working on our development pipeline.

Taken together, these connected practices are often referred to as a “CI/CD pipeline” and are supported by development and operations teams working together in an agile way with either a DevOps or Site reliability engineering (SRE) approach. Your work will involve close collaboration with Architects, DevOps Engineers and Offering Managers across our global organization.
