Cool projects

Make a strategic impact on an emerging business for IBM, and start something BIG!

Interns hard at work on a cool project.

Extreme Blue™ projects are varied—focusing on topics in business opportunities such as Cloud Computing, Web 2.0, Web Services, Virtualization and other emerging technologies. Extreme Blue projects also represent and potentially impact all of IBM's core businesses in the areas of hardware, software, services and research.

Early in the internship, you and your fellow interns will set a series of goals: baseline, target and stretch. Your project sponsors and mentors will bank on your fresh ideas to make your project extreme—so your input is critical. And at the end of the project, you will have a chance to show off your work to the key decision-makers within the company.

Be sure to read more about previous Extreme Blue projects that were either integrated into IBM products or donated to the open source community.

If you're up to the challenge and want to make a difference by contributing to a new or existing technology in these exciting areas—the Extreme Blue internship experience is designed for you.
