its fight to advance human rights and freedoms by creating and deploying
anonymity and privacy technologies, advancing their scientific and
popular understanding, and encouraging their use.

The position provides the high-profile opportunity to assume the voice
and face of Tor to the world, and particularly to the global community
of Internet organizations dedicated to maintaining a stable, secure and
private Internet. In this position, the successful candidate will be
able to exercise their deep leadership experience to manage a virtual
team of culturally diverse volunteer developers. The candidate will have
the opportunity to draw support from their stature in the wider

The Tor Project received the Free Software Foundation's 2010 Award for
Projects of Social Benefit.

culture in a volunteer-driven, virtual organization and will appreciate

all work toward the common mission and goal. The successful candidate
will have a passion for the ideals behind Internet privacy and welcome
the opportunity to make strides for the cause to establish anonymous
Internet communications.

The Opportunity

The successful candidate will welcome the opportunity to create an
organizational culture that creates conditions and infrastructures vital
for Tor?s continued success and relevance to the cause. This is a chance
