At the start of the month I announced my departure from the Open Rights Group. Now I’m excited to share what I’m doing next.
I’m joining eQualitie as Technical Projects Coordinator.
eQualitie develops systems and software to defend digital-rights directly. We focus on privacy, security, freedom of expression and community outreach. Our goal is to support civil society with accessible technologies and training, helping human-rights defenders resist surveillance, censorship and other forms of digital oppression.
Our services are free to use, and we release as much software as we can under free and open source licenses, so others can build on our work. We are grant funded.
We make some very interesting software.
It’s now my job to coordinate development of these projects (and more besides): a daunting but exciting challenge. I was in Montreal earlier this week meeting some of the team, who are all very welcoming, helpful and generally fantastic. I can’t wait to get stuck in!
P.S: If you could see yourself joining a team like ours, and working on these awesome projects, we are hiring.
