Mozilla is hiring an innovative UX Engineer Intern into our Toronto office’s design team, and we would like it to be you!

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.

UX Engineering Intern (TOR)

UX Engineers live in the intersection between design and engineering, simultaneously a part of both and neither. As an active participant in the design process, you will contribute, and gain, both technical and design expertise. You will bring our most creative product concepts to life through quickly-built and iterated prototypes to validate and refine design concepts. So if you aren't daunted by the challenge of working with a team to start a new project from scratch, then we might be the next step in your career.

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 2018 and onward
  • Or, recent graduate from a Coding Academy (within last 6 months)

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Fluent in web technologies (JavaScript, HTML, and CSS), and some familiarity with the latest web standards including HTML5 and ES6.
  • Design sense for developing intuitive user interfaces.
  • The ability to rapidly create prototypes that demonstrate user interfaces.
  • Great communication and collaboration skills, with both designers and developers.
