+<h1>The Tor Project is looking for another dedicated core developer!</h1>
+This would be a contractor position for 2012, starting as soon as you're
+ready, with the possibility of 2013 and beyond.
+Any candidate must:
+<li>Have extensive experience in C, and several other programming
+    languages. At least 5 years experience with C is probably necessary
+    for the level of expertise we want; most people would need more.</li>
+<li>Have a solid understanding of issues surrounding secure C programming.</li>
+<li>Be comfortable working from home (or wherever your preferred
+    Internet connection is).</li>
+<li>Be familiar and experienced with nonblocking, event-driven networking
+    programs.</li>
+<li>Be comfortable and experienced with interacting with users online.</li>
+<li>Be comfortable and experienced with driving the entire lifecycle
+    of a new feature in an existing piece of software, from design to
+    implementation to testing.</li>
+<li>Be comfortable and experienced getting code and design reviewed,
+    and reviewing the code and design of others.</li>
+<li>Be comfortable with transparency: as a non-profit, everything we do
+    is in public, including your name and pay rate.</li>
+An ideal candidate would also:
+<li>Know enough of the basics of cryptography in order to understand
+    how to implement our protocols and discuss changes to them. (Actually
+    implementing block ciphers and stuff like that isn't necessary.)</li>
+<li>Know enough about networking in order to understand how to implement
+    our protocols and discuss changes to them.</li>
+<li>Have experience with high-performance networking code.</li>
+<li>Have experience with open-source software development, including
+    working with distributed teams across different time-zones containing
+    employees and volunteers of differing skill levels over email and IRC.</li>
+<li>Have basic familiarity with distributed version control systems.</li>
+<li>Have contributed significant chunks of code to multiple
+    open-source projects in the past.</li>
+<li>Genuinely be excited about Tor and our values.</li>
+Your job would be to work on all aspects of the main Tor network
+daemon and other open-source software. This would include triaging,
+diagnosing, and fixing bugs; looking for and resolving security
+issues; and working collaboratively with coworkers and volunteers
+on implementing new features and protocol changes at every stage from
+design to maintenance. We'd also need help making our code more scalable,
+testable, and maintainable. Sometimes, we need to drop everything and
+scramble to implement last-minute anticensorship schemes, or to deploy
+urgent security updates. You'd also be reviewing other people's code and
+designs, and looking for ways to improve it. For an idea of the
+breadth and depth of the work you'd be doing, have a look at <a
+ChangeLog file from the Tor source distribution</a>.
+Other notes:
+<li>Tor developers don't have an office; you can work from wherever you
+    want. You'll need to be comfortable in this environment! We coordinate
+    via IRC, email, and bug trackers.</li>
+<li>Academic degrees are great, but not required if you have the right
+    experience.</li>
+<li>We only write free (open source) software, and we don't believe in
+    software patents.</li>
+How to apply:
+<li>Link to a sample of code you've written in the past that you're
+    allowed to show us.</li>
+<li>Provide a CV explaining your background, experience, skills, and
+    other relevant qualifications.</li>
+<li>List some people who can tell us more about you: these references
+    could be employers or coworkers, open source projects, etc.</li>
+<li>Email the above to jobs at torproject.org.</li>
+About the company:<br>
+ The Tor Project is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to research,
+ development, and education about online anonymity and privacy. The Tor
+ network's 3000 volunteer relays carry 14 Gbps for upwards of half a million
+ daily users, including ordinary citizens who want protection from identity
+ theft and prying corporations, corporations who want to look at a
+ competitor's website in private, people around the world whose Internet
+ connections are censored, and even governments and law enforcement. Tor has
+ a staff of 13 paid developers, researchers, and advocates, plus many dozen
+ volunteers who help out on a daily basis. Tor is funded in part by
+ government research and development grants, and in part by individual and
+ corporate donations.
