Internship Opportunity at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse Hong Kong, a leading global financial services company, is seeking students interested in technology for its Summer Analyst Programme. To be eligible you should be graduating between December 2015 and June 2016, and strong performance in this program could lead to a full time position after graduation.
The internship centers around technology in banking, and combines tech skills with financial information management. Interns become involved with many stages of a project’s life cycle, including application development and infrastructure. As well, there are opportunities to team up with traders and bankers to help solve their business problems.
Credit Suisse relies on new technology to improve the quality of the final product delivered to customers. This means successful internship applicants would be working with Big Data, Cloud Computing, and Mobile Development among others.
