Seeking Android/Python contractors

Guardian Project is seeking Android/Python contractors for mobile/free software/privacy work!

We’re looking for self-motivated, free software hackers to work with Guardian Project on privacy and internet freedom for mobile devices. Our work is 100% free software and we have a steady stream of projects that tie into F-Droid, Tor, IPFS, Debian, and censorship circumvention. We work to support people and communities around the world. This is a flexible, remote position but we also like to work in person when possible.

  • Demonstrated the ability to work collaboratively.
  • Understand public, free software workflows
  • Are proactive and self-directed.
  • Fluent in Git.

  • Ansible/Docker/Vagrant/Kubernetes
  • Experience with GitLab and its API
  • Understanding privacy implications of metadata
  • Life experiences that are underrepresented in tech work
  • Fluency in more than one language
  • User research and UX design
  • Blogging and writing

About us

This is for projects managed by Hans-Christoph Steiner. We work in Vienna, Austria so ideally you work in a similar time zone, but that is not a requirement. We work in English but our team members speak many languages. Work is contract-based but with the possibility to shift into full-time employment in the future.

Please reply to or find us in any of the regular channels!
