Linux Developer

Privacy Hero is seeking a full time embedded Linux software engineer to join our virtual engineering team, based in Canada.


The Privacy Hero Adapter is a Linux based adapter that encrypts Internet traffic from/to a home network. We spend most of our time working with networking, DNS, VPN and firewalls.

We believe there is a new category where privacy, security and network management are separated from a router in the classic networking setup.

Basic information on our service can be found on our website, privacyhero.com
