The Brave New Software Project seeks an experienced backend engineer to help fight censorship around the world through the Lantern censorship circumvention tool.

On the Lantern team, you will be a part of consistently deploying protocols and strategies that have never been used on the internet before. We make heavy use of Go, and experience with networking, security, and protocols are strongly encouraged. We also use Python and Rust as well as Prometheus, Redis, Docker, and SaltStack.
