The Brave New Software Project is looking for engineers at all levels to help fight censorship around the world through the Lantern censorship circumvention tool. Lantern has been downloaded over 100 million times globally and has been used by people such as citizen journalists in China uploading videos about coronavirus to YouTube and by followers of the Bahai faith in Iran who are denied access to a physical education and are forced to access educational resources online.
Lantern uses a variety of networking and protocol tricks to access the open internet in the most repressive censoring countries in the world. 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.
If you’re excited to tackle thorny social problems with software, or if you’re just an experienced engineer who thinks they might be ready to tackle a new kind of challenge, we want to hear from you.
