Co-hosting an Elasticsearch meetup

Here’s another small update from Meltwater Engineering Sweden. We are co-hosting an Elastic(search) meetup in Gothenburg together with our friends at Findwise on April 9, 2015!

When Findwise reached out we were eager to collaborate since this is something we have wanted to do for a long time. Please have a look at the meetup page, sign up, and spread the word. It’s going to be fun and interesting.

Meltwater Engineering at CHARM in Gothenburg

CHARM is an annual career fair hosted by the university of Chalmers in Gothenburg, Sweden. Meltwater was one of over 170 companies from different areas of business attending CHARM to meet students and show what they can offer them during and after their studies.

Our mission was to attract talented individuals to the platform teams and our proposed master thesis topics. Five members of Meltwater Engineering in Göteborg took turns to man our booth that we shared with Findwise.

Post-it Art - How we threw a frog to the wall

No animal was harmed in this, we promise :) Nevertheless, we indeed ended up with a frog on the wall in the Meltwater office in Berlin.

In Berlin we have a team that uses Kermit, the well known Muppet character, as a mascot. So we thought it would be only appropriate to decorate the office accordingly.

BE MORE - Sebastian Spier - Careers at Meltwater

Meltwater recently produced the BE MORE video series that portrays various employees and their different roles in our company. Sebastian Spier, Development Manager in Berlin, was also interviewed for this series, so that you can learn a bit more about him and the work he and his team do for Meltwater. The video is in German but we are sure that your German is great, right? :)

Stockholm Natural Language Processing Meetup Kick-Off

Meltwater just initiated the Stockholm Natural Language Processing Meetup, and on October 23, 2014, we hosted the kick-off session in our office in Stockholm.

The idea of creating this Meetup emerged from a Knowledge Sharing and Tech Talks culture in Meltwater’s Data Enrichment Team. We thought that we could go beyond this and create a platform in Stockholm to bring closer academia and industry as well as an opportunity for people to interact with teams or individuals in similar fields and learn together. Having this in mind, we launched the Stockholm Natural Language Processing (NLP) Meetup, which is sponsored and organized by Meltwater.
