This looks like a great opportunity for anyone looking to be involved in something from the groundfloor. Parakey, the RIA platform and application company founded by the creators of FireFox and FireBug, has some three month internships available. They are looking for a group of hackers to obsess over their project with them. Python is desired and Flash is a plus.
I’ve been curious about Parakey since i read the first article on it, but their site has been pretty spare since then. Finally with the internships page they are describing themselves in their own words:
What separates Parakey from others in this space is that we’re building not just the platform but also the first set of applications on top of it. We enjoy programming, but ultimately we started this company to make computers better for average users. When people need to call their “computer friend” in 2007 to install a program, scan a document, burn a CD or show a picture to a friend, there is a problem. Fixing it will take time and the patience to sit down with users and understand them.
I haven’t seen their product yet, but I am looking forward to checking it out. I really want to see how it compares to Apollo, it’s main competition as far as I can tell.
