We live in an era of remarkable change and opportunity. Data and technology are transforming industries, society, and even the workplace by creating professions that didn’t exist before the emergence of cognitive computing, cloud, analytics, social, mobile and security. As the largest technology and consulting employer in the world, IBM is a leader in this global transformation and we encourage you to consider being member of this team.
Client Technical Specialists (CTS) are technical sales consultants to clients, IBM sales teams and/or IBM Business Partners.
