Your job would be to work on all aspects of the main Tor network daemon and other open-source software.
As a core developer, your job with Tor Project will be to work on all aspects of the main Tor network daemon and other open-source software. This would include triaging, diagnosing, and fixing bugs; looking for and resolving security issues; occasionally dropping everything and scrambling to implement last-minute anticensorship schemes or deploy urgent security updates; and working collaboratively with coworkers and volunteers on implementing new features and protocol changes at every stage from design to maintenance.
We are working to make our code more scalable, testable, and maintainable. You would be reviewing other people’s code and designs, looking for ways to improve it. For an idea of the breadth and depth of the work you’d be doing, please see ChangeLog file from the Tor source distribution.
This is a full-time remote position. Flexible salary, depending on experience. Experience and/or passion for working with open source communities and/or a commitment to Internet civil liberties are added pluses for any candidate applying for this position!
