Job Description

Why Mozilla?

Mozilla Corporation is the non-profit-backed technology company that has shaped the internet for the better over the last 25 years. We make pioneering brands like Firefox, the privacy-minded web browser, and Pocket, a service for keeping up with the best content online. Now, with more than 225 million people around the world using our products each month, we’re shaping the next 25 years of technology and helping to reclaim an internet built for people, not companies. Our work focuses on diverse areas including AI, social media, security and more. And we’re doing this while never losing our focus on our core mission – to make the internet better for people. 

The Mozilla Corporation is wholly owned by the non-profit 501(c) Mozilla Foundation. This means we aren’t beholden to any shareholders — only to our mission. Along with thousands of volunteer contributors and collaborators all over the world, Mozillians design, build and distribute open-source software that enables people to enjoy the internet on their terms.

The opportunity

A healthy and inclusive internet starts with the tools used to access and discover the Web. On Android, we start by developing applications that give people a choice in their Android browser to experience the Web in an open, safe and healthy environment. Promoting transparency, innovation, inclusion and opportunity from every angle for mobile is at our core.

If you are an experienced app developer and want to contribute to a product that has over 100 million downloads from the Google Play Store, join our team!

What you’ll do

  • Design, debug, build, and ship medium to large scale Android solutions that promote a healthy and inclusive internet

  • Closely collaborate with stakeholders to understand, define and clarify scope and solidify requirements
  • Clearly communicate the engineering development perspective and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical team members
  • Define and uphold standards for quality through constructive code reviews, bug fixing, testing, and coding practices
  • Provide solutions and feedback to Mozilla's lively and dynamic open source community to improve our Android solutions and support Mozilla’s manifesto

What you bring

  • Many years experience building complex applications for a broad and diverse user base using Java and Kotlin
  • A passion investigating and squashing bugs
  • Experience resolving problems, signaling risk, fostering change, and facilitating collaborative decision-making
  • Passion for building excellent products.
  • Modern programming practices (code review, unit testing, automation)
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced environment to deliver well-designed, reusable, and high-quality code on time
  • Desire to work with, learn, and grow with an outstanding group of people

Bonus Points for:

  • Unafraid of asking questions, and proposing new ideas if you think they will make a positive impact.
