It’s the beginning of the year and many companies are hiring. So are we (Mozilla). But why should you consider the job opportunities at Mozilla versus many of the super hot pre-IPO companies that also offer good opportunities?
If you are into advertising and marketing technology, I’d like to think that we offer one of the few truly differentiated value propositions in the ecosystem… and delivering against this is a huge engineering, product, product-market, and account management challenge. We truly put the user first – and give them complete control. In our world, it’s not just what the brand wants… it’s also what the user wants. We’ve begun to assemble a passionate group of folks who “get” the ad tech space – so there is no lack of intelligent conversations. We are looking to add to this group of folks, affectionately called Content Services.
Below are three areas that we’re hiring for – right now. If you are interested in any of these or know someone who is, please reach out thru the contact form on this blog.
Prior to reaching out however, please do the following:
- Read our Advancing Content blog and make sure the concepts discussed there are super interesting to you.
- Read The Intention Economy by Doc Searls. I’m happy to purchase this book for you if you need a bit of financial help there.
- Have the curiosity of John Battelle’s Searchblog.
- Understand the role of the buckets in the Lumascapes, most importantly, digest Brian Andersen’s latest presentation.
- Read thru our 10 principles at Mozilla (our manifesto)
- Watch this #independence video
