I hope this is an appropriate place to post this. We're hiring, and I'd
especially like to find someone in Vienna since I live here. :) This
post is in English since English is the main working language.
Collaborators live and work all over the world.

Jobs

You – We’re looking for developers of all levels to join us – primarily
mobile application developers with skills ranging from user interface
design down to the core app work at the network and data level. For
experienced developers we expect you to have at least one app released
in public and prefer that you have experience with open-source and
community-led projects. Experience with security software and standards
is desired, but not required. The ability to assist in the localization
of software to different regions / languages is a plus.

Responsibilities – Dependent on seniority, but ideally you’ll be able to
confidently take the reins of the overall project engineering processes
– specifically software build and release, version control management
and software testing. Act as the lead engineer and be responsible for
pushing releases to app store(s), markets and other distribution points.
Be the team’s primary internal contributor of original project code.

All work is contract-based and is not limited by geography.

If you are interested in the opportunities below, send a resume or link

Internships

We’re always on the look-out for energetic, enthusiastic, and capable
interns.

You – While an aptitude for development is preferred, all that is
required is a passion for mobile devices, an interest in security, the
eagerness to learn and the ability to be self-directed and productive.

The Opportunity – You will be exposed to some of the most advanced work
being done in the field of mobile privacy, while at the same time
contributing to the general good of humanity and gaining real-world
production development experience. If that isn’t enough, then you may
also end up with a Guardian-enabled Android device of your own.

Responsibilities – Your work will include testing software, working with
NGOs and activist groups to setup and use Guardian software, producing
online tutorials and guides, and even social media promotion work.
