Jane St. Capital expand their OCaml effort

Financial trading company Jane Street Capital recently announced that their growing profits are to be ploughed back into the company that will now employ over 30 OCaml programmers, 50% up on the 20 programmers reported to have worked there only one year ago. This ossifies their position as the world's largest employer of OCaml programmers. Yaron Minsky of Jane St. also commented that they probably have the largest OCaml code base in the world as well, weighing in at just under one million lines of code.

Citrix take second place with just under 20 programmers contributing to their OCaml code base. However, previous news shows that the number of OCaml programmers at Citrix has been growing over 80% per annum since mid-2006.
