If you'd like to hear about job opportunities in information security and global catastrophic risk, you can fill out this form created by 80,000 Hours

I find it rather unfortunate that a job application related form for security experts is not only hosted at Google, but also requires a Google account to even see.

The reason is that security expertise and awareness in many cases (some would say in all) involves care about privacy. Because Google is a company whose business model revolves around taking your personal data and making money out of it, I would expect that a lot of good security-minded people will stop before submitting their information to Google, reducing the chances for finding suitable candidates.

For those, who like me, won't do that, I post form questions (edited due to broken copy-paste). I'll leave where to submit them as an exercise for the reader.
