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
You will be helping our customers and business partners make sense of their data, secure it, and to modernize their applications using the newest technology we have at our disposal. Your work will be in real client projects, collaborating with more experienced IT Professionals, to jumpstart your career in the field of new, disruptive technologies. Your job will be to create new, exciting prototypes to demonstrate the value and capability of IBM’s technologies to our clients, business partners, developer communities and universities. These can originate from client engagements or your own initiatives and ideas.

You will be working with a peer network of student workers across all Nordic countries, and you will be taking leadership guidance and coaching from the local country technical leader as well as your own mentor. Promoting yourself and your work through presentations as well as on social media should be natural for you. In this role, your studies will come first, and the work will be flexible around your study schedule. That being said, the job will be very self-paced and you will typically be organized in small teams with a joint goal of finishing a task or project within tight deadlines. To succeed in this role, ability to organize your own work is a must.

We will offer you mentoring and ample opportunities to improve your skills, as well as the certifications to prove it. However, there are some skills that you should already possess to be successful in your job.

We will also offer you:

  • The opportunity to get professional hands-on experience with the IT-industry’s latest technologies and innovations
  • A dynamic work environment with flexible hours, weekly contribution can be 10 to 20 hours depending on your availability and the requirements of your study
  • To become a part of a skilled and innovative professional team
  • Access to unique development tools available to IBM employees only
  • Be part of IBM Student Alumni network.

We look forward to seeing your application including your personal motivation as well as your CV and last report card (can be in the same document)!
