Software Developers at IBM are the backbone of our strategic initiatives to design, code, test, and provide industry-leading solutions that make the world run today - planes and trains take off on time, bank transactions complete in the blink of an eye and the world remains safe because of the work our software developers do. Whether you are working on projects internally or for a client, software development is critical to the success of IBM and our clients worldwide. At IBM, you will use the latest software development tools, techniques and approaches and work with leading minds in the industry to build solutions you can be proud of.

Your Role and Responsibilities

Data is the new currency. In an ever increasingly connected world where the amount of data generated every day is exploding, in the wrong hands, this data can be used for malicious intent. As more systems are being built on the cloud, businesses are struggling to protect and monitor their data environment. The IBM Security development team works on leading edge products and solutions to help organizations analyze their data environment to make sound decisions to ensure regulatory compliance and improve their data security. The research and development in this area is critical to IBM and represents a huge opportunity for growth in terms of revenue uplift and technology advancement.

Our developers participate in all aspects of software development, from inception and design through code implementation and delivery, contribute to and learn about all technologies utilized by the product across the different tiers and work closely with senior technical team members on high-level architecture and designs. As a Security Software Developer, you will be an integral part of the team responsible for developing new features for our new data security offering using the wide array of tools and technologies. You will work on a self-managing Agile team that cultivates creativity and challenges the status quo.

The ideal candidate should have a strong passion for developing software using the latest web technologies as demonstrated by their contribution to open source projects, experimenting with new technologies and development of their own hobby applications. They should also have a keen interest in researching the latest data security trends and regulations, and a broad understanding of cybersecurity attacks. In addition, the ideal candidate must also have a relentless desire for continuous improvement through the learning of new things, be a champion of new ideas, continually explore new perspectives, and embrace going beyond their comfort zone even at the risk of failure or embarrassment.
