As a developer co-op student or intern, you will help build a large-scale content syndication and learning management system used by several million people worldwide.

You will have a lot of creative freedom to exercise to grow your skills and to put what you learn to good use.
IBM Developer Skills Network is part of the Developer Ecosystem Group. We engage closely with all business units of IBM, academic institutions, and customers large and small. As part of our open source mission, we work closely with various open source communities as both contributors and users.
We containerize and orchestrate at scale. We apply machine learning, AI, and blockchain. We do cool things on mobile. We dabble in Golang, Elixir, and everything else that’s cool and new. We care about your passion and competence, not the number of years.
We are an emerging technologies team. That means we make bets about what’s coming next, not just what is popular today. Serverless, WebAssembly, blockchain, self-sovereign identity, self-driving cars, AI, and more AI.
We have a great working environment with the latest tools and great people. You’ll have ultimate flexibility in choosing technologies. You will learn, learn, learn. We guarantee continuous learning at the cutting edge of everything tech.
We value passion and attitude over experience. We consider soft skills to be technical skills and we value them as much as the ability to code.
