IBM

IBM is a leading cloud platform and cognitive solutions company and the largest technology and consulting employer in the world, serving clients in 170 countries. With Watson, the AI platform for business, powered by data, we are building industry-based solutions to real-world problems.  IBM is also preparing more students and workers for careers in new collar jobs to help ensure that more workers have an opportunity to benefit from technology-driven economic growth. And 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. To lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. We believe every individual brings unique skills, perspective and experience to the workplace. We believe that innovation comes from seeking out and embracing diversity in all its dimensions. Diversity of thought. Diversity of colleagues.
