Tor: Open Positions
Tor is currently not hiring. We are generally looking for self-motivated individuals who are able to work independently and want to help make Tor better.
Working on Tor is rewarding because:
- You can work your own hours in your own locations. As long as you get the job done, we don't care about the process.
- We only write free (open source) software. The tools you make won't be locked down or rot on a shelf.
- You will work with a world-class team of anonymity experts and developers on what is already the largest and most active strong anonymity network ever.
We want you to have good communication and writing skills (in particular, you should know how to keep other project members informed of your progress), and we want you to know how to figure out what needs doing and then take the initiative to do it. Most project members play more than one role, so combination developer/activists are very welcome.
The best way to get noticed as a good developer is to join the community and start helping out. Smart code commits and ideas are welcome anytime. We have a great core group of developers working on the Tor software itself as well as supporting software like Torbutton, etc. All of our contractors came through volunteering first.
Periodically we get new funding to work on more development projects. Your goal should be to get into the list of core project members so we think of you when new funding arrives.
