🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

About Mozilla:

Mozilla exists to build the internet as a public resource accessible to all, because we believe that open and free is better than closed and controlled. Our flagship product — the Firefox browser — has expanded into a family of products that help bring joy, safety and freedom to web users everywhere.

Our team:

We're an international group of makers, builders and doers who still believe in the original promise of the internet — a place to find purpose and joy and freedom. Your teams, the Brand and Creative Studios, are responsible for the strategy, concepting and execution of brand experiences for our core brands: Mozilla, Firefox and Pocket. 

The Brand Studio conceives, socializes and maintains the Big Ideas, anchoring stories and essential tools that thread our brands together and create continuity between the Marketing, Product and Support experiences of each brand. You direct this cross-functional team of strategists, writers, designers, and UX specialists to activate our business vision, ignite imaginations within our walls, and direct best-in-class product and creative continuity that drives a healthy bottom line. 

The Creative Studio delivers all the creative assets for the full-funnel marketing programs of all our brands. This multidisciplinary group of designers, writers and video producers is fully integrated within Marketing to help define each project and brief, and test and learn our way to compelling, needle-moving campaigns, content and creative assets. You maintain the integral connection between the high-level brand stories and expression that come out of the Brand Studio, and this team’s real-world, results-driven output, making sure there is continuous cross-pollination between the two. 

The role:
