Job internship opportunities at the IBM Toronto Lab.


Early this year we started the search for students around the world to fill up two 16-month internship positions at the IBM Toronto Lab. We were looking for the best Web developers to help with cool and interesting projects that would use Web services, mobile technologies (iPhone, Android), and Cloud technologies; all in conjunction with DB2.

Today I'm happy to announce that after a long selection and recruitment process, Marius-Gabriel Butuc from Romania (left on the picture) and Henrique Copelli Zambon from Brazil (right on the picture), have been selected.

These are their stories in their own words:

Henrique Copelli Zambon
I'm a Computer Engineering student from the University of Sao Paulo. I learned about this opportunity from my colleague Phillip Viana, who now works as a Software Engineer at IBM Brazil. I'm very excited about this opportunity because of the chance to work with cool technologies involving mobile platforms (iPhone and Android), Web services and cloud computing using DB2. After several phone interviews, and completing an assignment, I was delighted to be chosen. I'm looking forward to the work ahead!

Marius-Gabriel Butuc
Hi, I'm Marius, a 2nd year MSc Software Engineering student at the "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University of Iasi, Romania. As soon as I learned about this opportunity from my professor, Dr. Sabin-Corneliu Buraga, I was happy to embark in an application process that made me discover great people who have now become both my colleagues and inspiration. Discovering an unsuspected match between my interests and most of the buzzwords surrounding the project - like Django, RESTful Web Services, interface development for mobile devices, Ruby on Rails and DB2 - I soon decided to take this opportunity. After my longest flight to date, and with a smile on my face, I'm eager to fulfill this great learning opportunity, in the middle of this great team!

More information about internships
Through the DB2 on Campus program we recommend students we've met in person at DB2 on Campus events, or referred from a teacher or IBMer. Internships are only offered to students who are still in school. They must go back to continue their studies after the internship period is completed. Undergraduate, graduate (Master's, PhD) students are welcome to apply.

Internship applications at the Toronto Lab start in mid-December for positions that start in May. Though 16-month internship work periods are preferred, there are also 4, 8 and 12 month internships. Preference is given to Canadian students, but everyone is invited. Most positions are for development and testing, where C/C++/Java skills are a must. DB2 skills are a plus.

To apply, please contact your teacher or local IBMer who can get in touch with me. Please don't apply directly from this blog post.

Learn DB2 quickly from channeldb2.com/oncampus videos, and the free eBook "Getting started with DB2 Express-C".

Cheers, Raul.

Hello,
My name is Kanyarat Senapitak.
I am currently a 4th student at the Faculty of Information Communication Technology, Mahidol University, Thailand.
I was informed about this opportunity through the Faculty's official website
After almost 4 years studying in this field, I have taken courses learning the fundamental programming with C and Java.
I also have done some projects related to Web Services and Android.
Yet, I consider that is not enough and would like to have some opportunity to learn more about them.
I am sure that "IBM's Job internship opportunities" will give me what I never have.
Not only just the programming skills, but also the real work experience that I will gain from this opportunity.
Thanks for your kind consideration,
Kanyarat Senapitak
P.S. Please contact me at Kanyarat.sn(at)gmail.com
