NOW HIRING: Firefox Senior Sync Engineer

Company: Mozilla
Headquarters: Global

Why join Mozilla engineering?

Learn: Code review at Mozilla includes pushing to passionate contributors around the world. Building Firefox and its family of products requires knowledge up and down the stack, and extremely high standards for security and optimization. Beyond the browser, we’re developing AR/VR, IoT, and voice recognition products that respect and protect privacy.

Grow: We’re dedicated to helping every team member develop. We give engineers trust and responsibility from day one, offer generous stipends for learning opportunities, and provide mentorship, especially around key leadership skills like collaboration and clear, kind communication.

Make Your Mark: We’re small but mighty, challenging the biggest behemoths on the internet with a staff the size of their marketing departments. That means every engineer can have an outsized impact on products that touch tens of millions of users—ultimately influencing how the entire internet works.

The Role

Are you a curious software developer who is motivated by learning continuously and working collaboratively in the open? Perhaps you already know why Rust is the most-loved programming language, or maybe you are ready to learn it and love it too? If so, we would like to talk with you about coming to work at Mozilla, where you can join our small global team to help build a connected Firefox experience.

What you’ll do:

  • Provide Firefox users with a seamless experience managing and accessing their personal browsing data (history, bookmarks and more) across platforms and devices.
  • Evolve the components that are at the core of new products, such as Firefox Lockwise and Firefox Preview, and extend their use across the Firefox family of products.
  • Build new cross-platform components for storing and syncing user data.
    Improve our team practices and skills through providing constructive feedback, timely reviews and well-documented ideas.

What you already do:

  • You have strong knowledge of web or native app development practices in languages such as JavaScript, Kotlin or Swift and experience shipping large applications as part of a team.
  • You’ve had some exposure to Rust or you are willing to become fluent through daily use.
  • When you are building applications, you are trusted to work independently because you communicate with all colleagues to understand the business value, operational impact and security implications of your changes.
  • You clearly express your ideas to your peers and you maximize your impact by sharing what you’ve learned through documentation and demos.

What will make you happier here:

  • You are comfortable working remotely as part of a distributed team, where you regularly consider how to improve asynchronous communication.
    A desire to ship well-crafted code which highlights your professionalism in its consideration for the user experience and positive impact on the team objectives.
  • You are curious and not afraid of taking on complex tasks that are outside your existing knowledge domain.
  • You have experience beyond web applications where you’ve worked with multi-functional teams on desktop or mobile applications.
  • Feel good about your work again.

At Mozilla, we’re serving humanity—by maintaining a safe, open internet—while also helping the individual humans employed here to reach their personal and professional goals. With a relatively small team serving hundreds of millions of people, a culture of exploration, and a commitment to mentorship, opportunities abound to learn and grow at Mozilla.
