Julian Blair, Computer Science, UNSW Then: Internship @ FundX, Stone & Chalk Now: Software Developer @ Microsoft Seattle

“I got a very well-rounded experience working at FundX. In fact I’d say this is one of the major benefits of interning at a startup versus an established company. ...You get a chance to be involved with all aspects of the design and build from the ground up...I’m certain my experience working at FundX through Ribit is one of the reasons I was able to get accepted into Microsoft .”
