Job Description

At IBM, we are observing a sea-change in the way that enterprises want to employ compute resources to take on their most pressing business problems. While the movement to Cloud computing has brought enormous advantages in terms of dramatically shortening time-to-value, growing capital efficiency, and improving operational stability, doing so has exposed issues with latency, network utilization, and customer privacy.

New technologies like Edge computing helps take on many of these issues. By using the emerging computational capacity of edge devices, gateways and networks, and retaining the principles of dynamic allocation of resources and continuous delivery that are manifest in Cloud computing, the potential now is to virtualize the Cloud beyond the four walls of the Cloud data center. Workloads crafted in the Cloud, including some of the more modern forms for AI and Analytics, can now be migrated out towards the edge, even while data generated at the edge can be cleansed, optimized and brought back to the Cloud.

We are seeking applicants with extraordinary technical skills and positive attitude to explore, learn and implement a robust platform for edge computing. Our role will involve implementing a framework that takes into account the need for security, networking and processing power at the edge. We work as a tight-knit team, feeding off each other’s strengths and energy, and collaborating with other teams to complete the product offering. If you like working with other people and want to work in an environment where you can both contribute and learn from others who are equally passionate about being at the ground-floor, consider being part of this team.

You will work with open-source technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, Linux, Horizon to name a few – both using these as well as contributing to others.

The position can be located in San Jose, CA, Foster City, CA, Emeryville, CA or Raleigh-Durham, NC

Required Technical and Professional Expertise

4-8 years of experience in systems software engineering

Experience working with and building Open Source technologies

Familiarity with cloud principles such as continuous delivery, systems reliability, and security

Preferred Tech and Prof Experience

Application lifecycle management

System monitoring services, such as Prometheus, Grafana, Logstash, and Kilbana
