The OpenSSL Project develops and maintains the OpenSSL software – a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured toolkit for general-purpose cryptography and secure communication. As an open-source endeavour, OpenSSL benefits from a global community of contributors who help to improve and secure the software. These contributors range from enthusiastic hobbyists to full-time professionals, all dedicated to the shared goal of providing high-quality security and privacy tools. While OpenSSL is not a large organisation, its work forms a crucial part of the infrastructure that makes secure online communication possible.
We are seeking a Software Engineer to join our team. As a Software Engineer at OpenSSL, you will play a vital role in sustaining and evolving the core cryptography and network protocol functionality that enables secure communication across the internet. In addition to your technical contributions, it’s essential that you align with and uphold our core values and mission in your everyday professional activities. Your responsibilities will include resolving issues of support customers, as well as working on the OpenSSL toolkit, contributing to the development, debugging, and maintenance of this crucial open-source resource. Your day-to-day tasks will include analyzing and solving complex software problems, collaborating on the design and implementation of secure solutions, and writing and maintaining detailed technical documentation. Our ideal candidate is someone who is interested in secure communication, has a deep understanding of C programming, and possesses a strong sense of ownership.
This is a remote position. Given the global nature of the project, we require flexibility in accommodating various time zones outside of conventional business hours. In particular, our weekly and daily meetings are generally scheduled within the core hours of 7-11am UTC.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.
