Description

Binfer is an early stage high-tech startup that has developed a direct device to device, secure communication platform. Binfers innovative platform allows messaging, collaboration, file sharing, synchronization and more without storing users data on any cloud/external servers.

Never before have concerns about privacy and security of our data been so great. Until now, choices were extremely limited. People were forced to upload their data onto third party systems in order to share them. Binfer is changing that, by providing a secure, easy and reliable way to communicate, without ever having to give up control of the data.

Binfer is seeking enthusiastic and resourceful interns to work in their business development, sales and marketing departments. You will be exposed to the inner workings of a tech startup and gain valuable hands on experience in a dynamic and fast paced environment. Please review the website and understand the current product before applying.
