Freedom of the Press Foundation https://freedom.press -- DevOps Engineer

Full-time, Bay Area local preferred but remote possible for exceptional candidates.

We develop SecureDrop, an open source whistleblower submission system. SecureDrop is currently used in over 15 major newsrooms, including those of the Washington Post, the Guardian, the New Yorker, and ProPublica. [0]

One of our big challenges moving forward is scaling. For legal and security reasons, we require every organization to deploy their own SecureDrop instance on dedicated hardware. We do not offer SecureDrop "as a service". As a result, traditional scaling techniques do not apply. However, we believe that by automating the testing, development, deployment, and troubleshooting of SecureDrop systems, we can continue to support a growing base of SecureDrop installs without becoming overwhelmed. That's where you come in :)

For more information on the job, see our full job description, which includes instructions for applying: https://freedom.press/jobs/job-opening-devops-engineer-secur...

Virtru | https://virtru.com/how-it-works | Washington, D.C. | Fulltime | Javascript fullstack, Android, iOS, .NET

== Who we are ==

Everyone has a right to keep their digital content private and secure. We founded Virtru because we believe that exercising that right should be easy and convenient. Virtru allows you to send end-to-end encrypted email using your existing email address and email provider with the flip of a switch.

Our browser extension for Chrome and Firefox allows you to send and receive encrypted email directly from Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook.com. Our Android and iOS mobile apps and Outlook desktop plugin work with any provider that uses IMAP. Our full time team of 16 is currently 50% engineers. We value automated testing, readable/maintainable code, documentation, and code reviews. We run in 2 week sprints and dedicate about 20% of total capacity to things the dev team thinks are important (technical debt, refactors, exploring a new technology, etc), while the rest goes to feature development and addressing bugs.

We are well capitalized with investments from Bessemer Venture Partners [0] and private investors.

== Current positions ==

- Full stack NodeJS/Javascript developer. Our backend runs on NodeJS (with dabbles of Python), our frontend uses Angular and Backbone (looking to consolidate!), and our browser extensions use our internal javascript framework to run in Chrome and Firefox.

- Android developer

- iOS/Mac OS developer

- .NET developer to support our Outlook desktop plugin

I work on the backend, so I can provide some details on that role. Our client facing API services are built on Express.js. We run in the AWS cloud and are looking for someone with deep experience deploying/maintaining services/infrastructure who can also help add new functionality to the application layer. Some things we play with on the backend: NodeJS, ExpressJS, PassportJS, AWS (EC2, SQS, ElastiCache), CouchDB, Packer, Salt Stack, ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana), HAProxy 1.5, PagerDuty.

Some more information is listed here: https://www.virtru.com/careers.

== Get in touch ==

If you care about privacy and are interested in creating security products at a company which thinks that user experience is a first class citizen, please get in touch! Send a secure email (using Virtru!) to feedback@virtru.com with subject “HN who is hiring response” and tell us what interests you about Virtru. It would be great if you can provide some sample code that we can check out (github, bitbucket, etc).

If you have any questions, I’ll monitor this thread and/or you can email me directly (email in profile). [0] http://www.bvp.com/portfolio/virtru
