  • Determining when issues deserve EFF attention and convincing others of their importance.

Required:

  • Strong familiarity with and passion for digital civil liberties issues;
  • An eagerness to learn about new issues; and
  • An ability to turn things around quickly and comprehensively.

In addition, knowledge of or experience with any of the following would be advantageous:

  • Collaborative writing and editing;
  • Professional journalism, or formal training in journalistic or creative writing;
  • Organizing online activism for an advocacy-oriented nonprofit organization;
