Continue below for an introduction to Kyndryl – and learn what its technology sets out to do, and get the inside track on how to apply for opportunities to join the team – and three great reasons why you’ll want to.
What does Kyndryl do?
Kyndryl is the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, with more than 90,000 employees worldwide. The company designs, builds, manages and modernizes enterprises’ complex information systems.
Kyndryl’s six core service practices are cloud; applications, data, and AI; core enterprise and zCloud; digital workplace; network and edge; and security and resiliency.

Kyndryl provides these organizations with a comprehensive portfolio that leverages hybrid cloud solutions, business resiliency and network services.
With the help of Kyndryl, companies can optimize their IT workloads and transformations by:

- Simplifying enterprise data management for cloud and on-premises environments
- Maximizing IT operational efficiency with seamless multicloud management
- Increasing IT agility by modernizing private infrastructure
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s growth?
Despite the newness of our name, Kyndryl is a well-established, global IT supplier.
Since becoming an independent company in November 2021 (previously part of IBM), the Kyndryl team has expanded its skills and offering to address the company’s larger alliance market with its ecosystem strategy.
In pursuit of our vision, we have the willingness to create new areas of expertise, and that has led to the infusion of new talent and ideas into the business to support us as we continue to grow.
Kyndryl also celebrated a major milestone with the opening of its new Ottawa office. This regional expansion reflected our commitment to Canada across all regions and our great respect for the Ottawa tech community.
We are excited about all the ways we’ll be able to use this new space. It won’t just be for internal collaboration, but also to engage with partners and customers. Our Kyndryl team in Ottawa is committed to leveraging the space and our presence in the city to give back to the community.
