    How To Boss It Like: Katharina Borchert, Chief Innovation Officer at Mozilla

    There are a handful of business leaders and industry figures who are changing the world. Today we meet Katharina Borchert, Chief Innovation Officer of Mozilla-the open web advocate and not-for-profit maker of Firefox. "I'm a real night owl and hate getting up early," she confesses.

Mozilla – Why Work For Us?


Here at Mozilla, we are a group that works to make the Internet secure and free for you, the user.  Create, collaborate, revolutionize.

At Mozilla, we’re 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. We believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to individual growth and our collective future.

"...you do not have to look very far to be reminded that freedom and privacy cannot be taken for granted."

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mission is real. Not pure but more real than most companies. Very remote friendly, engaging, flexible, supportive, and challenging.

    Cons

    Mozilla has been through some growing pains, both in terms of employee size and direction. However, I honestly feel many of those pains have been mitigated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with recent (2017) direction. Make the fastest, most powerful, and beautiful browser on the market so that the world is a little bit more personal, free, and private. Sell the browser rather than the mission in order to achieve the mission.

    People Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I submitted my application for this position, and because someone at this company knows my current employer, they contacted my current employer informing them of my application to Mozilla. Needless to say, not only is this extremely unprofessional, it jeopardizes candidates’ standing with their current employer. If these are the antics that candidates experience, I would only imagine that employee experience is far from positive.
