Hello Laurence, I saw your job advert and though I am not based in the U.S. or Canada, I am interested in a remote internship with you. Regards.

Remote, but only based in Canada/US?

We wish we could hire folks anywhere in the world. However, because we are hiring full-time employees we need to abide by the (employment and taxation) laws local to each employee. We're a small company, and so we don't really have the bandwidth to ensure that we're complying with the regulations of every region in the world.
