Firefox Developer Tools Intern – Designer Tools

At Mozilla we really care about promoting the open web, and that means helping everyone create amazing websites. We’d like you to be part of that - help us to help not only web developers, but also designers by creating amazing tools.

Browser developer tools have had a tradition of being mostly targeted at seasoned developers and we want you to help us change this. The team is exploring new opportunities for more visual tools that provide ways to manipulate and change elements directly in the page.
