So, I scoured the forums for a bit and I couldn't find an official post where people stated what they do, where they do it, and a sample of their work (if possible).
I mean, sure, there were several posts that talked about it or hinted around it (mostly people asking for advice), but nothing that has been stickied and had everyone weigh in on, so this is it.
Feel free to write anything about what it is you do for a living, or as a career. You can also tell us about what you used to do if you would like. We are all ears.
I am a Senior Software Engineer for IBM working on a Software that is now called Watson Explorer (Formerly Infosphere Data Explorer, formerly Vivisimo Velocity) (I feel like I'm talking about Prince whenever I type that....). Anyway, I work with some of the largest companies in the world to create an enterprise class search engine using our software. Some of these customer include government agencies, John Deere, Verizon Wireless, CAT, and many more.
I work on complex pieces of code and for high value customers. That is why I have to vanish rather quickly from time to time, because I have to be ready to jump on stuff in a moments notice.
Just found this video where a customer talks about how our software worked for them and how they loved it, and I'm their support engineer that helped make it all possible.
