You'll work on the data processing pipeline and other components responsible for recording measurements by our global user network. Python or Golang required. https://www.torproject.org/about/jobs-backenddeveloper.html.en
The real challenge here is to understand the resource needs, resource limits and the billing process, so you can estimate costs. My Free Tier account is already running up charges, so that's kind of surprising...
Thankfully, this is a test migration anyway intended to understand the process.
The Tor 0.3.5 series includes several new features and performance improvements, including client authorization for v3 onion services, cleanups to bootstrap reporting, experimental support for NSS in place of OpenSSL, and more: https://blog.torproject.org/new-releases-tor-0357-03410-and-03311

I have two old hashtag#Lenovo #X200s notebooks I use for testing. Despite the age, they handle #Windows 10 with newest updates quite well. Kali Linux bombed after the most recent upgrade and with running #FreeBSD, I can use the notebooks as servers. Of course, performance is not that great, but still good enough in many circumstances.
What people keep forgetting is that the Fed and other central banks did provide this extra and cheap funding for banks, so that these can "repair their balance sheets".
