Product Manager Intern

We are looking for someone to join the Firefox Product Management team that shapes, influences and manages the Firefox experience across iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. You'll have the opportunity to manage feature definitions across mobile and desktop platforms that speak to Mozilla's own values and philosophies for deployment in the Firefox browser and associated products.

Engaging with many teams throughout Mozilla including Engineering, Marketing, Metrics, and User Experience, you will spec new features using the scientific method to outline how we hypothesise that they will contribute to improving Firefox success metrics.

For the features for which you will be responsible, you will undertake analysis (qualitative and quantitative), calculate the estimated impact, formulate hypotheses, specify success criterias with corresponding metrics, and build out phases of deployment starting with a Minimum Viable/Valuable Product (MVP). After each phase, you will measure the success of it and determine next steps. If successful, you will also brief PR and Marketing to ensure the feature is positioned appropriately externally.

This position provides you not only the opportunity to learn more about Product Management as a career choice, but just as importantly, gives you the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of millions of users who use Firefox products every day.
