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 tools such 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.

The VP of Finance and Operations will oversee the planning, development, implementation, and maintenance of the company’s financial and business operations. The VP of Finance and Operations will translate the company vision and strategy into annual and quarterly plans. This person will have demonstrated experience in finance, preferably in a startup environment and will be comfortable owning strategy and execution until it’s time to build a team around themselves. This person will manage the grants contracting team (compliance officer and bookkeeper), an HR generalist and our regional leads for China, Russia, and Iran.

If your idea of Customer Support is rooted in intrinsic motivation to help others find solutions to their challenges, we should talk.

Our team aims to drive an exceptional experience and sustained value for customers through building trust and addressing issues with Lantern’s products. The outcome is increased value, satisfaction, and renewal of the customer.

As a Customer Support Manager, you will first lead the customer support process at Lantern. This will require hands-on support to begin addressing issues and defining the type of support team we need to deliver exceptional value to our customers. Our team works together to deliver a human and helpful support experience through creative problem-solving, and a deep and thorough knowledge of how Lantern works.
