Amnesty International – Technologist, Berlin (Germany)
Amnesty International is recruiting a new full time Technologist position based in Berlin (Germany), for our growing international work on technology and human rights.
We believe in a free, open and secure Internet. We want to protect the ideals on which the internet grew: privacy, freedom of expression, access to knowledge and participation. And we are determined to identify and address new threats to human rights in the digital age.
About the role:
As a technologist in our technology and human rights hub co-located in Berlin and London, you will be working to combat unlawful surveillance, help to protect activists against digital threats, uncover evidence of government and corporate abuses, and combat censorship. You will develop and conduct digital technical research and analysis in relation to AI’s work with a focus on the right to privacy and freedom of expression online and provide expert advice to Amnesty teams.
You will use your technical expertise to complement Amnesty’s campaigning, communications and research expertise to address threats to human rights in the digital age. You will be working closely with Amnesty sections across the globe and Amnesty ́s international network of activists to tackle human rights issues present and future.
You will have expert technical understanding of global internet communications and technologies demonstrated by hands on professional experience or technical qualifications from a major network technology vendor, telecommunications company or equivalent. You will have expertise in Information Security both in analysis frameworks and practical implementations, with experience in an Information Security role and/or relevant qualifications such as CISSP or Certified Ethical Hacker. You will have the ability and self-driven interest to keep up-to-date on emerging security threats and trends, particularly those impacting human rights defenders.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.
Our supporters are outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world – so we work to improve human rights through campaigning and international solidarity.
We reach almost every country in the world and have:
- more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights;
- more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice.
