Our reporters in the US, Europe and Asia get news directly from government and private sources, and we distribute it to our customers over our low-latency network. We have internship opportunities in software development and system administration.
Most of our software development work is either server processes of various sorts, written in core Java, or internal web sites, written using Grails, for information entry and administration. Your work could range from a program to process data from China, to working on the scheduling system that drives our workflow, to adding new functionality to our internal user administration website.
