Interested in joining a team that makes software that helps public interest journalism?

SecureDrop, originally coded by the late Aaron Swartz (MeFi's own), is an open-source whistleblower submission system that media organizations can install to securely accept documents from anonymous sources. SecureDrop is currently in use at the Washington Post and the Daily Beast and several other newsrooms, and dozens of varied institutions like Center for Public Integrity and police accountability project Lucy Parsons Labs.
