Mega Mergers Impact On Minnesota Companies, Dow Jones & Co. And News Corp

In recent years we have seen the ripple effect of a rock dropping in a pond in another location sending little waves here to Minneapolis. One current saga is the Rupert Murdoch owned News Corporation attempt at Dow Jones & Co.


Most people are aware of the Dow Jones holdings including The Wall Street Journal. Locally Dow Jones Online employs around 100 people and was featured in this Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal back in December of 2006, Dow Jones expands local division.


Part of the story surrounds CTO Jaime Thingelstad who according to the story was originally with Big Charts, which was acquired by MarketWatch, which was later acquired by Dow Jones.


Did you follow all of that?


Thingelstad writes his own personal blog, He had this brief post regarding the article, Article in Twin Cities Business Journal.


Both the article and his blog mention the hiring they are doing. If you think you might be interested in joining the team you can check their opportunities by clicking Dow Jones Jobs.
