The Metrics Team (where I work) at Tor Project is hiring a third team member. We're looking for someone that will work with helping us design and refine systems for gathering and analyzing data. This can be a remote position.
I've written a blog post about measuring diversity in the Tor network https://blog.torproject.org/strength-numbers-measuring-diversity-tor-network
I have similar experiences

Solar powered micro datacenter in the work: the autonomous Datashedter ( need a better name, or sleep a bit more before naming things ... )
- 400W solar panels on top and a bunch of batteries for up to 4 days operations in the dark.
- Fiber uplink to main building.
- Wifi backup Uplink.
- the 3 Ham antennas in the picture are used for emergencies at crazy distances in case of all down in a 150-1000miles radius ( 1k miles is very very low bandwidth ofc ).
- DYI isolation in the work
- Moar shelves inside and probably power box overhaul.
- Migrating some services there ?
it should be fun to self host stuff :)
