Introduction

Would you like to work in a fun and experimental studio atmosphere? Do you want to help us transform the way IBM engages with its Business Partners?

We are looking for the right person to join our cross-functional agile software development team. We are a diverse and empowered, co-located team of researchers, product owners, designers, developers, and managers located in a purpose-built space designed to encourage collaboration and creativity.

As an Agile delivery organisation, our mission is to deliver best-in-class systems and insights that equip our sales partners to sell more in the marketplace. Our future is on the cloud, with Artificial Intelligence adding real, transformational value.

Our team incorporates Design Thinking and cutting-edge technologies and practices to design and build signature experiences that make people’s lives easier. We operate in an open and flat organisation where everyone’s ideas are valued and we’re able to learn from each other and share successes.

Your Role and Responsibilities

Your Role and Responsibilities:

As a Full Stack Developer, you’ll be using the latest tools and technologies available to deliver state-of-the-art software and web applications. You’ll have an opportunity to drive the choice of technologies used as we transform our applications and experiment with the best new tools for the job based on upcoming industry trends. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that components are expertly architected, tested, debugged, verified, and delivered into various contexts across the IBM Enterprise, creating a productive environment for IBMers and our Business Partners. The ideal candidate would have experience in Java, MicroServices, API Architecture and/or TypeScript, as we need more great skills in these areas to enrich us.

Our team owns IBM global software selling platforms, used by all of IBM software sales, business partners, and IBM software partners.

Like so many, we’re working remotely at present. We’re all looking forward to the new normal, when we can meet again face-to-face. A typical day still begins with the team’s daily stand-up. Then it’s head-down coding time for a couple of hours. Next could be attending a virtual lunch and learn session by one of your colleagues. You may have signed up to one of IBMs over 20,000 free online courses for a refresher on a particular topic before you get back to coding for a few more hours. Perhaps you’re hosting an architecture session where you decide as a team how to solve a specific problem for your product. You complete it, to find someone had submitted code for your review – which you can do easily because you have been working with them for some time and have coached them to write better code.

At IBM we embrace diversity and value what individuals add to our culture. We believe highly empowered teams create the best products – so we take a group of designers, developers, and business analysts, and give them free rein on how to address problems, in a “We give you a problem, you decide how to solve it” environment.

Above all, we value curiosity, teamwork, and a desire to learn. We are confident that if you possess the right attitude, work ethic, and skill set that you could succeed in the role, even if you do not have all the required skills.
