Your Role and Responsibilities
If you spend some of your time thinking about questions like those, then IBM is the perfect place for your career to flourish.
IBM has always challenged the way the world interacts, how we communicate with each other and how business works, and it continues to ask the world “why?”. In 2018, IBM had 9,100 new inventions recognised in the U.S. alone, the 26th year in a row we have led the way. Our new ideas and inventions cover things like artificial intelligence, cloud computing, cyber security and quantum computing. 5 IBM colleagues have received Nobel Prizes.
As well as challenging ourselves as an organisation to keep inventing and improving, we also make sure we continue to challenge and develop our people with fantastic training and education.
We want to be challenged, too. Many IBMers (IBM employees) are old (certainly older than you!) and have grown up using technology in a certain way and are used to the ways things work. We need people to come and challenge us and our thinking, and show us that there are new and different ways to look at the world around us.
