Update October 28, 2014: John Light, welcome aboard!
Being a non-profit means we have a constant need to fund raise, so:
The okTurtles Foundation is looking to hire a genius fundraiser, part time or full time.
The protocol “securing” most internet traffic today (SSL/TLS) has a 20+ year old design flaw that undermines the security of every website on the internet. Our work fixes the problem in this protocol, prevents many types of internet censorship, and makes it possible to have truly simple, surveillance-free communication, everywhere.
About this position:
- Finding individuals or organizations to sponsor our work.
- Researching and managing crowdsourced donation mechanisms.
- (Optional) Grant writing.
Our mission is to:
- Provide Simple, surveillance-free communication, everywhere.
- Document and provide solutions for fundamental security flaws in today’s mis-named “secure” internet protocols.
- Fix a 20+ year-old backdoor in HTTPS / SSL / TLS.
- Enable the creation of decentralized and free services that connect people better than today’s centralized, paid services.
- Give people ownership over their web domains and online identities. (Today, people rent or borrow their domains and identities from various organizations who sometimes take them away).
- Provide a simple means to unblock censored websites around the world in order to promote better connections and understanding among the world’s people.
Part-time or full-time depending on: (1) how much compensation you require, (2) how effective you are at fundraising. If you’re really good, some of those funds can be used to pay you full-time.
In your reply, tell us:
- Why we should hire you.
