eQualit.ie is seeking an enthusiastic person to fill the shoes of a project manager at our small (but growing) organisation. This is a relatively fast-paced environment with a strong sense of individual contribution and close-knit project teams. We expect individuals to grow into their roles but also to make it their own. We are open to different approaches and perspectives.

We’d like you to have:

  • Experience with open source projects – the beauty and the pain of collaboration – and a few examples of projects delivered
  • A strong sense of empathy and sound professional judgement
  • A solid track record of coordinating, facilitating or straight up managing team-based projects
  • A background in a technical subject or in-depth experience in a variety of software projects
  • A shared spirit of working in a not-for-profit team that is driven by defending and promoting human rights in the digital domain
  • Willingness and ability to work remotely and travel

Extra points if you have:

  • Several years experience as a team lead / project coordinator
  • Exposure to working in a non-profit environment and partnering with NGOs and civil society
  • A keen interest in developing solutions that protect people from indiscriminate Internet surveillance and censorship
  • Some background in digital opsec or crypto or education
  • Surprise skills that would be useful in this multi-faceted role

About us

Our projects span DDoS mitigation, machine learning, encryption protocols, data management and analytic, education and awareness raising. We want you to be motivated by working towards positive social change through technology, comfortable within a diverse group of people from various backgrounds and skill sets, and be able to balance the needs and realities of the organisation with our stakeholders – primarily independent media and human rights organisations the world over.
