    About Mozilla

    Mozilla’s mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An Internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent. Mozilla is a global community of technologists, thinkers and builders working together to keep the Internet alive and accessible, so people worldwide can be informed contributors and creators of the Web. They believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to individual growth and our collective future.

    It all started with the Mozilla Project, an open community passionate about creating free software that would enable people to have a choice in how they experienced the Internet. The project in turn created the Mozilla Foundation, an independent not-for-profit that would always put the people who use the web first. They began by making a new type of web browser, what we know today as Firefox, and the foundation for the web as we know it began to appear. With excitement building up for their mission and success, the Mozilla Foundation created the Mozilla Corporation, their arm for products, technology, innovation and the organization behind the new products and modern versions of legacy products we use and love today. From user privacy, to mobile, to apps and identity, Mozilla’s pushing beyond the boundaries of web to build a generation of web makers, and this is why tens of thousands of volunteers help build Mozilla’s products and hundreds of millions use them. Internet for people, not profit.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

  • We're a content production company that helps high-growth companies scale. We produce hundreds of articles each month, with dozens of writers (both full-time and contract) spread out all over the world. We're fully remote, so you’re free to work whatever hours you want (as long as some overlap with your clients).

    Here's a rough list of typical activities you’d face from week to week:

    • Coordinating new work with clients

    • Assigning new work

    • Coordinating work with specialists (writers) and editors based on deadlines (for outlines, drafts, edits, etc.)

    • Some QA work (things like light copy edits, checking plagiarism, etc.) to make sure deliverables (pieces of content) meet client specs

    • Reporting/updating progress to client

    • Managing capacity to see if we need to test/hire new writers

    • Coordinating new test writers, vetting quality, etc.

    In other words, you're like a part-account executive to help clients and part-project manager, making sure we're delivering everything on time and under budget.

    We’re looking for good people, who can think logically and are detail-oriented. So please answer the application in full... ;)
