We are looking for a focused product manager to direct and manage a new product business at Mozilla. This includes strong product management and business leadership skills. We are launching new products aligned with our mission of building a better internet for a better world.
The successful candidate for this role should possess deep skills in the functions around building new internet businesses: a laser focus on users, product management, engineering management, marketing, business planning and general leadership skills. A strong product leader will drive clarity on the product and business itself, and rally the org in this direction, all while achieving predictable business results.
We pride ourselves on being a different kind of company, and this leader should both represent our values and carry the business forward.

How we work matters just as much as our expertise. This will embody our values, and be a coach, a listener, and a unifier. We hope to raise up voices from our teams, customers and community that otherwise wouldn’t be heard to make sure we build the best possible products. We expect our leaders to run teams with empathy and respect despite pushing for growth — both of these skills are compatible and vital.
