GrapheneOS Remote Developer

Location: Remote

Position Type: Independent Contractor

We are seeking a highly skilled and self-directed developer to contribute to our open source project, someone who shares our passion for enhancing the privacy and security of mobile devices. The ideal candidate will have experience working with Android-based operating systems, the Linux kernel and its hardening, memory allocators, or extensive experience in Android app development. In this role, you will play a key role in the development and maintenance of our existing projects, and will be expected to commit a minimum of 80 hours per month. The role will require a high level of autonomy and the ability to independently manage workloads.



Time Commitment

Must be able to commit to spending 80 hours or more a month, but we are extremely flexible about how you want to structure your working times. There is, however, a significant workload porting GrapheneOS forward when each new Android version is released. Having the capacity to focus and/or increase work hours during these periods is a great advantage.


Salary and remuneration will be commensurate with experience and aligned with industry standards. You will be employed as an independent contractor.
