Graduate Developer – IBM Garage for Cloud

IBM  Garage is IBM’s approach to enable enterprises to accelerate, break  through, and work more like start-ups. The IBM Garage experience  seamlessly blends business strategy, design and technology into a single  end-to-end journey.
We  use our lean-and-agile-influenced Garage Method to drive customer  success on the IBM Cloud platform at an accelerated pace. We bring  clients into the Garage to collaboratively develop applications using  IBM’s Design Thinking approach. This user-centred approach naturally  flows into a collection of agile practices for developing the apps and  scaling them in production.
We  assemble ‘A’ teams of Developers, Architects, Designers, Data  scientists and project managers to work together in multi-disciplinary  teams. Pairing is at the core of the way we are doing development and  the way we are aiding clients to drive successful outcomes. Garage  developers will do pair programming, test driven development, continuous  integration and deployment using modern tools. We love co-creation,  fast build pipelines, making great software, solving customer problems,  and learning new things. Our technical career path means even our senior  developers code and share their knowledge by pairing.

  • Contribute your technical expertise co-creating impactful business solutions with a dynamic and diverse team:

    • Develop  a strong technical network within IBM and the client, including  developers, designers, solution architects and product owners. 
    • Become a vocal advocate within the developer community sharing best practices and advice.

The  primary teams that you will work with are Garage Developers, Designers,  Architects & Project Managers, Customer Product Owners, Subject  Matter Experts and Garage Practice Leaders.
