Engineering Ops
Mountain View, Portland, San Francisco, Toronto

Mozilla is hiring Engineering Operations Interns into our technical teams throughout the world. Our headquarters are based in the Bay Area, but we also have opportunities at our offices in Portland and Toronto!

We are engineers, designers, makers, and problem solvers. We work in the fishbowl known as the open source community, with a clear focus on making the Web better. Working with us, you’ll help build interesting new features and improvements in Firefox. To be part of the team, we ask that you be technically-curious, a capable and always-interested-in-learning-more programmer, and excited to be moving the Mozilla mission forward.

Mozilla isn’t just a great place to work, it’s an experience you’ll carry with you throughout your career. As part of our internship program, you’ll have the opportunity to be mentored one-on-one by a talented and experienced developer, to impact the projects you’ll collaborate on, and to never be bored. Ever. From the passionate people you’ll learn from, to the chances you’ll have to make the Web a better place, your time with Mozilla will be unlike any other.

Below is a small snapshot of the work we do to give you an idea about some of the big things you could do at Mozilla.

We have 3 positions open for the following roles:

Firefox Data Engineering Intern (Mountain View, CA)

The Data Engineering team collects, stores, analyzes and visualizes telemetry to better understand how people experience Firefox products. Developers use that information to identify problems and generally make the Firefox experience more awesome. Members of our teams work on the Firefox client code that collects the data, the cloud hosted data pipeline that collects and stores the data, and the tools that enable developers to analyze and visualize the data.

DevOps Intern (Toronto, ON, Canada and Portland, OR)

Cloud Operations is a DevOps team that manages the operational aspects of applications and services that support the Firefox ecosystem. This include services under the Firefox Test Pilot umbrella, Firefox Add-Ons, Firefox Accounts and many more. Since the infrastructure footprint is large and diverse, the intern will be building and enhancing tools to manage our infrastructure’s lifecycle.

Operations Security Intern (Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA and Mountain View, CA)

The Operations Security team protects the core services and release engineering infrastructures Mozilla relies on to build, ship and run Firefox. This internship is focused on developing techniques and tools to better protect the Firefox infrastructure, and more specifically on implementing fraud detection algorithms to block attacks against Firefox services. 

Basic Qualifications:

  • Currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related technical discipline with a focus on software development, with graduation dates starting December 2019 and onward
