IBM Praktikum/Internship: Cloud native backend developer (m/w/x) in BOEBLINGEN, Germany


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

Cloud Native Backend Developer (m/w/x) - 2 Internship Positions - Roles and Responsibilities

The IBM Cloud Code Engine in the latest innovation coming from IBM's Public Cloud. It was developed with the goal of helping customers create modern, source-centric, containerized, and serverless apps and jobs that run on Kubernetes clusters. The platform is designed to address the needs of developers who just want their code to run. Code Engine abstracts the operational burden of building, deploying, and managing workloads in Kubernetes so that developers can focus on what matters most to them: the source code.

We are looking for two active and interested interns to join our Code Engine team in adding to that innovation and to experience end-to-end backend ecosystem cloud native development. They should be looking forward to gaining first hand experience of what the life cycle of a service offered on cloud platforms looks like. Furthermore they should also have hands-on skills and passion for software development.

One of you will mainly focus on enhancing the existing Golang microservice code base along with introducing improvements to robustness, monitoring, metrics and the Unit test suite. This can eventually also lead to introducing more components in the Code Engine Service. The opportunity allows to learn and experience truly agile development for the IBM Cloud and work with active Open Source projects and contribution into them. There is also an opportunity to run other open source components on Code Engine as a base for Serverless and exploration of such viable use cases for the market scenarios (Ray and/or Dusk etc.). We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-paced candidate with inclination towards Open Source contributions.

In both positions you will join a team that owns the end-to-end delivery into production, from requirements gathering through design and implementation through production operations. The concept is: You build it, you run it. When something isn’t working, we fix it, improve it, and then apply the knowledge learnt. You will have the opportunity to learn different aspects of running a 24x7 Cloud Service and gain highly-marketable skills in the process.

These roles will give you the unique opportunity to:

• Work with machine learning algorithms

• Containerize the data gathering and data analysis processes

• Design and implement a microservice deployed on a Kubernetes cluster

• On mutual interest, we can discuss options for a Thesis@IBM, following your internship
