Get ready Internet: This is the Meltwater Engineering Blog
At Meltwater Group we develop software that helps many businesses big and small around the world to do their job even better. Among other things our software monitors news (Meltwater News), finds relevant information in social media channels (Meltwater Buzz), or identifies journalists that are interested in the information that our customers want to distribute (Meltwater Press).
Behind the scenes a technically diverse and geographically spread team is working relentlessly to make sure all of our products meet the customer’s needs. We are starting this blog as public platform for all the developers at Meltwater Group. In the posts to come you will meet many of us and the topics we are working on.
