Lantern is seeking an experienced Part-Time Social Media Specialist to create and maintain a strong social media and digital presence for the organization and build followers. This person will serve as the day-to-day manager for all of Lantern’s social media platforms and help create and implement visually appealing and on-brand social and digital content for global audiences.

We are seeking a Payments Lead to join the Lantern team to help us navigate the challenges of facilitating payments for our core product in regions with complex censorship restrictions. A successful candidate will have a strong understanding of international payment systems and technologies, including cryptocurrency, and will be able to think creatively and find novel solutions to complex payment issues. Attention to detail and compliance with relevant laws and regulations will be crucial in this role. The Payment Team Lead will also have strong communication skills and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and pivot quickly when necessary. Cultural sensitivity and the ability to navigate a variety of social and political environments will be important as Lantern operates in a variety of international markets. Fluency in Russian, Chinese, or Farsi is a big plus. Experience with project management and general financial acumen will also be valuable.

Lantern seeks an experienced backend engineer to help fight censorship around the world through our censorship circumvention tool.

Lantern uses a variety of networking and protocol tricks to sneak traffic past censors in some of the most repressive censoring countries in the world. On the Lantern team, you will be a part of consistently deploying protocols and strategies that have never been used on the internet before. Some devops experience is helpful but not required. On the other end of the spectrum, some mobile experience is helpful but not required. We make heavy use of Go, and experience with networking, security, and protocols are strongly encouraged. We also use Python, Rust, and Dart as well as Prometheus, Redis, and Docker.

If you’re excited to tackle thorny social problems with software, or if you’re an experienced engineer who thinks they might be ready to tackle a new kind of challenge, we want to hear from you.
