744
+    Tor Browser is a privacy-preserving web browser used by millions of
745
+    users around the world. We are looking for a programmer fluent in JS
746
+    and C++ to implement new features to work closely with the Tor Browser
747
+    team.

749
+    Image files, especially photos taken by smartphones,
750
+    often carry hidden privacy-violating metadata, typically specified by
751
+    the EXIF format. Such metadata can include the user's geolocation and
752
+    various unique identifiers. In order to protect the user's identity,
753
+    we would like the intern to modify the file-upload feature in Tor
754
+    Browser such that metadata in image files is automatically removed
755
+    before the image is uploaded to a server. Ideally, the  summer intern would
756
+    implement this feature for both desktop and mobile Tor Browser. If
757
+    there is time, we can envision sanitizing other kinds of uploaded
758
+    files, including movies, audio, PDFs and Office documents.
