Overview

Mozilla is in a category of one: a global technology social enterprise super-powered by a worldwide community of volunteers, with a mission to keep the internet a healthy public resource for all. By building great products, creating innovative technologies, and engaging people to take action, we create an outsized impact in the world. We always place people ahead of profits. 

 

Our Team

The Mozilla creative team delivers the visual and verbal expression of the Firefox brand. We create experiences that attract interest, enlighten users, and make our products beloved. You will work with fellow brand, product, social, PR, events, and communications team members to create content and experiences that spread our story to like-minded people all over the world.

 

Our Moment

Firefox is more than a browser: it’s a whole family of products designed to help you safely navigate your relationship with technology, so you can own your data and your digital life. We’ve just debuted our new brand system, and are exploring new ways to deepen our relationship with users. It’s an exciting time to join us as we seek to amplify our impact, fight for peoples’ rights online, and help protect the internet for future generations. 

 

The Role 

We’re seeking an experienced localizer to support Firefox marketing efforts in French and German. You’ll be the one adapting our English-language content to make it relevant for the French and German markets, both in tone and cultural context. You will be a member of two cross-functional agile teams: EU Brand Marketing and EU Growth Marketing. On these teams, you will contribute to project planning and prioritization, receive assignments, collaborate with copywriters, and present your work to the team. 

 

You have a deep love and understanding of language, knowing how to translate ideas and intentions into the right words for the audience at hand. You bring a strong sense of brand to everything you write, understanding the importance of a consistent tone of voice, and knowing how to meet people where they are in our user journey. Regardless of the assignment, you’ll find novel ways to express the personality and tone of our brand: Radical, Opinionated, Open and Kind.

 

This contract position is located in our Berlin office, and reports to the Head of Copy on the Brand Team.

 

As a Contract Localizer here at Mozilla… 

  • You’ll localize all kinds of touchpoints, from blog posts to web pages, emails, mobile push notifications, in-product communications, marketing materials, videos, and social.

  • You’ll conduct benchmarking audits and make recommendations regarding brand tone.
  • You’ll participate in the evaluation of consumer research to inform copy iteration. 
  • You might even get in on side projects around product naming and brand campaigns.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
