Simply Secure, a nonprofit developing usable, free, open interfaces for cryptographic communications tools like OTR, is hiring!
I'm a volunteer on SS's advisory board. I joined because I believe that without widespread adoption of crypto by "normal" people, we'll never be secure.
We're hiring for two positions. The first is a full-time, Philadelphia-based (or remote) research director to run applied research projects for the organization, developing both highly usable UIs and open, documented procedures to help other organizations do the same thing.
We're also hiring a Philly-based (or remote) ops manager to work on grants, oversee comms, work on research reports, and help run the daily operations of the group.
Two key points from the job posting:
Formal education matters less than a clear history of responsibly supporting organizations’ critical operational activities. As a rough guideline, we are seeking candidates with at least the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree plus four years’ relevant experience.
Simply Secure is committed to providing equal employment opportunity without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, citizenship status, marital status, HIV serostatus, sexual orientation, veteran status, height, weight or disability. People from populations under-represented in the technology industry are strongly encouraged to apply.

More accurately, the new frontier looms within. And it is within our bodies and upon this battlefield that the next electronic rights war will be fought.
