Interns wanted: Code at the beach this summer!

Minimal Metrics is hiring two interns to work on some exciting projects this summer. You will use your coding talent on cutting edge technologies alongside really sharp (and fun) people, and uniquely apply them to rapidly growing markets. Minimal Metrics has projects in retail analytics, media compression and web-data mining, in addition to our staple work in high performance computing (HPC) for a variety of top-tier customers. These positions are “generalists” – you will be responsible for developing a prototype; from specification modification to demonstration. As such, we’d rather you be good at a lot of things rather than great at only one or two. One of those things should be an eye for detail – you like elegance, simplicity and reusability in your designs. You’ll contribute to all aspects of the product development process while experiencing true startup culture.

Please send a brief resume and a reference (academic advisor or colleague is fine) to If you have code samples available on a repository that we have access to, please include those as links.
