We are a Data-as-a-Service company (pre beta stage) called politwire.

publisher, title, text and summary how many times each candidate is mentioned tone and polarity of text named entities: persons organizations places 20 top keywords and some more
We expect to launch a beta version of an API by the beginning of November; however, we thought that we might try to launch a weekly newsletter product. We are willing to provide an access to our database (PostgreSQL) to people who might want to dig into the data and be able to report the results as a writer to our newsletter audiance.
We mostly see data scientists and data journalists students/enthusiasts who might be interested in it. Even though we cannot pay you for the moment, we will take care of promotion of our newsletter and augmenting the number of subscribers. On the other side, you can have a real experience and, maybe, add few additional lines in CVs, or build a portfolio.
We will collect the requests until the end of October. If you would like to participate, please, DM me and let me know about your background.
