Technical Solutions Specialist
What does the programme involve?
Our software engineers/developers are responsible for the complete life cycle of a software product – from research and design, to implementation and testing, through training and support. As a software engineer/developer you will work at the heart of IBM's software innovation and you could play a key role in many world-shaping, cutting-edge technologies.Initially you’d be allocated to one particular product development team but during your first two years with IBM you’ll have the opportunity to work on a range of products and, consequently there will be opportunities to travel and work with other IBM Research and Development Labs around the globe.You’ll be encouraged to have contact with IBM sales teams and customers, both in the Lab as well as on customer sites, to understand the needs of our clients as well as assisting IBM’s post sales teams – all of which will contribute to your own development as an engineer.
What we look for:
You'll have either obtained or be predicted a 2:1 or above in your degree and be authorised to work in the UK
The term 'Technology Solutions Specialist' is fairly all encompassing. Our Specialists develop proof of concepts, design, develop, build, test and implement systems to solve our clients' business and IT problems.
As a hands-on professional you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of our products, offerings and services. This could involve any aspect of IT including Business Analysis, Database Design, Package Customisation and Implementation, Testing, Support, Networking and Junior Project management. You may also find yourself working alongside our sales teams, providing technical project knowledge and guidance to support the work that they do with our clients.
Within the development of a solution for a client, the IT Architect will design the solution initially – this will then be passed to you to make it work. As you can imagine, you’ll build and develop skills and in-depth knowledge of the products, offerings and services you're working with and turn high level visions and architectures into fully functioning solutions.
