The FSF tech team needs Spring 2018 interns! Apply by January 19, 2018

This is an educational opportunity to work with the organization that sponsors the GNU Project, publishes the GNU General Public License (GPL), and fights for software freedom.

As an intern, you work closely with FSF staff members in your area of interest, such as network administration, GNU Project support, or Web development.

We're looking for interns to work with our tech team, who are interested in advancing their skill in system administration, programming, security auditing, software stack research, and other technical domains this spring. Past interns contributed to GNU Wget2, created "HUBAngl" for easy video streaming, worked on porting LibreJS to WebExtensions, penetration tested our network, and researched Ceph distributed object storage. Interns may choose from our list of projects, or suggest one of their own, and may work remotely or in our office located in downtown Boston.

You can read more about our requirements for interns here, and see past intern projects here.

How to apply

Send a letter of interest and resume with two references by email to Make sure that your materials are in free software friendly formats (PDF and plain text work well), and include "Internship" in your subject line. If you can, please include links to sites you've made (personal blogs are okay!), designs or code you've made, and relevant writing. Please include these as URLs, though email attachments in free formats are acceptable too.

Please direct any questions about the program to
