Hello Noisebridgers,

The Tor Project has two job openings available!

We are looking for a C++ browser developer to work on our
Firefox-based browser, and a Firefox extension developer to work on
our growing number of Firefox extensions. Our ideal candidates would
be comfortable in both roles, but we are also interested in hearing
from people with either skillset.

On the C++ side, your tasks would include implementing new Firefox
APIs and browser behavior changes; looking for and resolving web
privacy issues; fixing bugs; responding on short notice to security
issues; and helping to merge patches upstream.

On the extension development side, your primary tasks would include
writing patches and UI improvements for Tor Birdy, Torbutton,
HTTPS-Everywhere, Tor Launcher, and an OTR plugin for InstantBird.
These improvements will primarily revolve around improving usability,
Tor configuration, and security for our users.

Instructions on how to apply to the C++ position can be found on the
browser hacker job posting:
<https://www.torproject.org/about/jobs-browserhacker.html.en>

If you would prefer to focus on extension development, you should
apply to the extension developer position:
<https://www.torproject.org/about/jobs-extdev.html.en>

Feel free to apply to both positions, as well. It's likely we'll have
some crossover.

Thanks,
-Tom
