At Mozilla, one of our four commitments is to build “ internet that includes all the people of the earth - where a person’s demographic characteristics do not determine their online access, opportunities, or quality of experience." Mozilla makes space for our employees, partners, and the broader community to bring their vast experiences to our mission - to improve the internet. Being inclusive and transparent for the betterment of humankind is part of our core values.

The Opportunity

Working at Mozilla means joining a community who cares deeply about our values and delivering the fastest, friendliest, most usable browsers for desktop and mobile devices.

Would you like to help Firefox maintain its place as the trusted guide to a joyful internet? Firefox Search Services display relevant information to users as they navigate the web.

  • Writing skills that foster a culture of knowledge sharing and efficient, asynchronous decision making
  • Leadership experience that enables you to resolve problems, manage risk, lead change, and prioritize work alongside your product management peers

What You’ll Get To Do

  • Grow an existing team to approximately 6-8 engineers that collaborate closely with engineering teams across Firefox
  • Create an environment which engages and challenges your team, exposes them to new opportunities, and help them to grow their careers
  • Set and communicate your team’s goals, and establish plans and schedules to attain them
  • Collaborate with engineers, data scientists, product managers, and support teams to implement our product strategy
  • Ensure that the software your team delivers is on time, high quality, measurable, and maintainable
  • Work closely with your peers to continually improve our engineering processes and culture
