At my work (Freedom of the Press Foundation) we're still hiring for a Senior Security Engineer to join the @securedrop team.
This is a work-from-anywhere role that's great for folks who have worked in security-sensitive software engineering roles for 3+ years (with or without the SecEng title).
Non-profit & open source jobs can be few and far between. HMU if this looks of interest to you or you have questions about it :)

Here's a roundup of the various ways Republicans and the former guy's supporters are trying to make us forget what 1/6 was really like.
I was sitting in front of my TV, fixated on MSNBC, C-SPAN, and CNN. You were probably doing the same. I moved out of the District some years ago, but I was texting friends who live near the Capitol to make sure no one we knew was in danger. I was awake until counting the votes resumed and I did not get any work done all day. I can usually compartmentalize and focus but not during an attempted coup. I don't remember much but the footage, and that sticks out very clearly (plus we've seen it over and over since). I won't forget that as long as I live.
An armed group of insurrectionists breached the Capitol with the goal of stopping President Biden's election from being certified. They were not tourists. They were not peaceful. And they were encouraged by the sitting president. Never forget it, no matter who tells us otherwise.
They want to confuse people while constantly hitting them with a wall of noise about it, then people can't recognize the truth of even the videos and get tired of hearing about it
The January 6th attack was armed insurrectionists who had been encouraged by elected leaders of the Republican party and Rupert Murdoch (via Fox) to overthrow the United States government
It seems that the Republican stories about January 6th capitol attack change weekly.
First it was Antifa. Then it was just a bunch of well-behaved tourists. Now it’s the FBI and they're back to admitting it was an attack again. Republicans can’t even get their lies straight.
The more conspiracy theories the GOP comes out with, the more they keep burying themselves. Everyone saw it, many live on TV, and worse yet heard Trump incite insurrection.
software dev tip
If I feel I'm not "done" with a programming task at the end of my work day, I leave myself detailed notes on what to do the next morning. Like: the next ~3 things I think I am going to need to do (update function X, run the tests, investigate function Y if the tests fail, etc). I've attached this morning's notes-to-myself.
Basically this lets me just "follow orders" at the start of my work day and ease my brain back into a place where I can start thinking at 100%
