Snowden gets website job in Russia, report says

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- Weeks after getting asylum in Russia, Edward Snowden now reportedly has a job there.

Snowden, the U.S. national security contractor turned leaker, will start a job Friday with one of Russia's largest websites, his attorney Anatoly Kucherena said Thursday, according to Russian state news agency RIA Novosti.

Kucherena, who declined to name the employer for security reasons, said Snowden would perform maintenance for the site, according to RIA Novosti.

Snowden, a 30-year-old former government information technology contractor, collected information on spy programs -- in which the National Security Agency mined phone and Internet metadata from thousands of people inside and outside of the United States -- and exposed the programs to the media.
