Tactical Tech is looking for an experienced digital activist interested in joining a small team working internationally on issues related to Tactical Tech’s current strategic priorities.

- Understanding and exposing issues; using data, design and technology to help people understand and investigate systemic issues in their own societies.
- The politics of data; understanding what it means to live in a ‘data society’, how we leave digital traces and what this means for the privacy of everyday users in different contexts.
- Digital security for human rights defenders and journalists; working practically to sustain freedom of expression in the digital sphere.
