The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is seeking a full-time Staff Technologist to work with our Browser Extensions team as the lead developer for HTTPS Everywhere. This is one of our efforts to encrypt the web and make it easy for all users to browse the web securely.

We offer an excellent benefits package including assistance relocating to the San Francisco area, medical, dental, and vision insurance, a 403(b)(7) retirement savings program, paid time off, holiday benefits, student loans assistance, housing cost assistance, paid family leave, flexible hours, and more. Insurance is 100% employee covered 50% for spouse family premiums. Plus if you have a (well-behaved) dog, you can bring your dog to work!
