+<h1>The Tor Project is looking for support assistants and translators!</h1>
14
+<h1>Note: we've filled this position for now, but we hope to be looking
15
+for more support assistants and translators in the future.</h1>
16

+starting in Q4 2012 and renewing quarterly.
22
+</p>
23
+
24
+<p>We are looking for candidates who are fluent in one of Arabic,
25
+French, Mandarin, Burmese, Vietnamese, Spanish, and English. All must be
26
+fluent in English.</p>
27
+
28
+<p>
29
+All candidates must:
30

+documentation or explaining technical issues to users.</li>
39
+
40
+<li>Be comfortable working remotely.</li>
41

44
+pay rate.</li>
45
+
46
+</ul>
47
+
48
+<p>
49

61
+
62

63

64

68
+

71
+<p>
72
+Other notes:
73
+</p>
74
+
75
+<ul>
76
+	<li>Tor developers don't have an office; you can work from
77
+	wherever you want, in basically any country. You'll need to be
78
+	comfortable in this environment! We coordinate via IRC, email,
79
+	and bug trackers.</li>
80
+	<li>Academic degrees are great, but not required if you have
81
+	the right experience.</li>
82
+</ul>
83
+
84

89

+About the company:<br><br>
100
+ The Tor Project is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to research,
101
+ development, and education about online anonymity and privacy. The Tor
102
+ network's 3000 volunteer relays carry 16 Gbps for upwards of half a
103
+ million daily users, including ordinary citizens who want protection
104
+ from identity theft and prying corporations, corporations who want
105
+ to look at a competitor's website in private, people around the world
106
+ whose Internet connections are censored, and even governments and law
107
+ enforcement. Tor has a staff of 14 paid developers, researchers, and
108
+ advocates, plus many dozen volunteers who help out on a daily basis. Tor
109
+ is funded in part by government research and development grants, and
110
+ in part by individual and corporate donations.
