    Research Engineer/Scientist


    Job Description

    The world continues to get “smaller” and “flatter.” But we see now that being connected isn’t enough. Fortunately, something else is happening that holds new potential: the planet is becoming smarter but unsecure. That is, intelligence is being infused into the way the world literally works — into the systems, processes and infrastructure that help billions of people work and live.

    Across the world, a distinctly different group of leaders is announcing its arrival. They are making decisions based on evidence, not on habit or opinion or “gut.” They are anticipating, rather than merely reacting, to events. They are seizing competitive advantage, but at least as often, they are re-framing the issues--in unexpected, often counter-intuitive ways. For example, we used to manually process workflow on various documents, potentially over a hundred per shipment sent by an exporter to facilitate supply-chain/trade. Now traders and governments endorsed new technologies to enable a secure, trusted and immutable document workflow to support trade. Marketers used to see you as a "segment."

    Since its establishment, IBM Research – Africa focused on addressing some of the world most difficult problems (in education, financial services, healthcare, public sectors etc) in Africa and in other emerging economies. Our goal is to develop original, novel and smarter system to

    • create opportunities for quality education and lifelong learning in Africa;
    • drive sustainable economic growth and transformation in Africa;
    • ensure good governance in Africa; and
    • save people's lives in Africa.

    IBM Research scientists are evaluated on three broad metrics: impact, engagement, and eminence. These metrics, in the context of a commercial research lab in an emerging market, create a unique combination of roles and responsibilities for a research scientist in Blockchain, Distributed Systems, and Cognitive Computing.
