The Role

We’re looking for an engineering manager who’s excited about the potential of WebAssembly (aka wasm) to join us and help the team grow and succeed. You will be on the front lines as wasm fulfills its potential to change the software industry!

You’ll lead a team of talented software engineers as they advance their careers while shipping excellent software and planning for its future. As a Mozillian in a position of leadership, you’ll help foster our cultural values as you solve challenging problems and advance your own career. 

Being involved with shipping software to millions of users requires having experience with the day-to-day activities of issue triage, prioritization, etc. Maintaining a clear roadmap and managing risks surrounding the team’s work is an ongoing task. As with any distributed team, frequent written communication will be required. For this role, we’re looking for someone to work from our Berlin office where we have other members of the broader wasm team and members of adjacent teams.

The WebAssembly team (the team that you'll be managing!)

We are a team of compiler engineers building and maintaining the WebAssembly implementation that ships with Firefox. Our focus is on collaborating with the wasm community to evolve and ensure success for this powerful technology. Part of Firefox’s larger web platform team, our most immediate peers work on the implementation of our JavaScript engine.

About You

  • You are excited to learn new things, especially WebAssembly.
  • You have written code in a pointer-based language (ideally C++).
  • You have worked on system software like a compiler, operating system, etc.
  • You love helping team members and colleagues grow and get better at what they do.
  • You are happy to provide and receive constructive feedback; when you see a chance to improve something, you act on it.
  • You have experience participating in product and strategy planning and can communicate effectively with other functions, such as product and project managers.
  • You are not afraid to ask questions and propose new ideas, especially those that will make a positive impact.
  • You have strong written and verbal English abilities

Come solve problems alongside intelligent and motivated colleagues! We’d love to have you join and strengthen our team as we work on this exciting new technology.

Join us and become part of our mission to promote openness, innovation, and opportunity online.  Mozilla is a global organization, and this role is available in our lovely Berlin office.

Feel good about your work again.
