Internet Policy Manager

Apply for this job
Remote US, San Francisco

Are you passionate about the Open Web? Do you want to help protect the Internet’s tremendous socioeconomic benefits through policy and advocacy? Mozilla works with our users and developers to provide products and services that make the Web more robust, and takes action when it is threatened. We engage in public policy matters when and where Mozilla can make a difference through both advancing and defending the internet.

To help advance Mozilla’s policy efforts, we are seeking a talented Internet Policy Manager who is a policy expert within the U.S. context, yet with global experience or the ambition to build and grow globally over time. Successful applicants will become a part of Mozilla’s public policy team working on some of the most interesting challenges of our time, including net neutrality, competition, intermediary liability protections, online speech, misinformation, privacy, and security issues. We prefer that this role be based in Washington, D.C. but will also consider San Francisco as well as remote applicants with U.S. policy and government expertise.

What You’ll Do

  • Collaborate closely with Mozilla leadership to guide the development of the organization’s global internet policy agenda.
  • Design and implement strategy for our work in the U.S. with partners in Congress, the Federal Government, civil society, tech industry, and trade groups.
  • Work in concert with policy team members across the globe to further our work across regions.
  • Design, propose, manage, and implement complex policy initiatives that produce substantive thought leadership and provide actionable solutions.
  • Engage policymakers, industry, civil society, and others working on relevant policy issues.
  • Track and monitor policy issues that could affect Mozilla, and make recommendations on positions and potential risks on these issues.
  • Communicate key messages to external audiences, including policy makers, NGOs, media, and industry.
  • Actively participate and represent, as appropriate, Mozilla in strategic community programs and trade organizations that advance effectiveness and visibility of Mozilla.

Who You Are

You should have plenty of experience (6-10 years) within technology public policy. Ideally, you’ll have an advanced degree in public policy, government, or law. You should be comfortable with tech policy issues, as well as legal and regulatory environments. You should have experience with political processes, including strategy development and implementation to make change happen. And you should have a deep understanding of the internet, including ample technical acumen.

We’re looking for someone with a strong work ethic and stellar interpersonal and communication skills. We want you to be able to talk to and work with a range of individuals at Mozilla and other diverse partner organizations, and to come up with ideas and execute them with lightweight management and guidance (but plenty of support!).
