Help Tor Find a New Executive Director
The Tor Project is continuing its world-wide search for our new Executive Director. We need your help to find this person, whether they work for a nonprofit organization, for a tech company, at a university, for an open software project, or somewhere else entirely. We are open to candidates from lots of different backgrounds.
Here's a link to our original blog post with many more details, including how to submit candidates: Tor Project Launches Worldwide Search for a New Executive Director
"The Tor Project, one of the world’s strongest advocates for privacy and anonymous, open communications is currently seeking an experienced Executive Director to lead the organization. The new Executive Director will spearhead key initiatives to make the organization even more robust in its work to advance human rights and freedoms by creating and deploying anonymity and privacy technologies, advancing their scientific and popular understanding, and encouraging their use."
Please take a moment to consider whether you know a candidate, likely or unlikely, who might be a great fit for this position.
Yes indeed. Here's the mail I've been sending people to encourage them to think about who would be a great person:
I'd like your help with getting a great new executive director for
Tor. Some of the characteristics I'm hopeful for are a) connections in
the non-profit space, b) familiarity with the free software ethos, and c)
ability to manage people. But that said, we want many qualities in our new
execdir, and there is no single person that will have every one of them,
so we would be wise to find somebody who complements what we have already.
Please take a moment to think about whether you know somebody who would
be a great fit, or you know somebody who might know somebody. Then
either let us know, or pass this mail on, or whatever steps you think
best. Maybe this person is in the non-profit or funder space now, or
maybe they're in industry or academia or the free software world or
somewhere else. Maybe they are you! :)
And don't worry, Nick and I aren't going anywhere. But we would
love to spend more of our time on coding, designing, researching,
community-building, mentoring -- all of the things that brought Tor to
the amazing place it is today.
