A lot of companies say they’re “mission-driven.” Our unique corporate structure guarantees that every decision we make upholds our mission: to ensure the internet remains open and accessible. Beholden to neither shareholders nor investors, Mozilla Corporation is wholly owned by the not-for-profit Mozilla Foundation. Along with our communities of 20,000+ contributors and collaborators, Mozilla Corporation’s staff designs, builds, and distributes software that allows people to enjoy the internet on their own terms. Our flagship product — the Firefox browser — has expanded into a family of products that protects users and alerts them of risks. Mozilla’s Emerging Technologies group incubated and sponsors Rust — Stack Overflow’s “most loved programming language” for the last four years — and is building safe, private versions of virtual reality, internet of things, and voice recognition. By maintaining a safe, open internet we're helping humanity, while also helping the individual humans employed here to reach their personal and professional goals. With a relatively small team serving hundreds of millions of people, a culture of exploration, and a commitment to mentorship, opportunities abound to learn and grow at Mozilla.

Pledge for a Healthy Internet
The open, global internet is the most powerful communication and collaboration resource we have ever seen. It embodies some of our deepest hopes for human progress. It enables new opportunities for learning, building a sense of shared humanity, and solving the pressing problems facing people everywhere.
Over the last decade we have seen this promise fulfilled in many ways. We have also seen the power of the internet used to magnify divisiveness, incite violence, promote hatred, and intentionally manipulate fact and reality. We have learned that we should more explicitly set out our aspirations for the human experience of the internet. We do so now.
Principle 1: The internet is an integral part of modern life—a key component in education, communication, collaboration, business, entertainment and society as a whole.
Principle 2: The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.
Principle 3: The internet must enrich the lives of individual human beings.
Principle 4: Individuals’ security and privacy on the internet are fundamental and must not be treated as optional.
Principle 5: Individuals must have the ability to shape the internet and their own experiences on it.
Principle 6: The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.
Principle 7: Free and open source software promotes the development of the internet as a public resource.
Principle 8: Transparent community-based processes promote participation, accountability and trust.
Principle 9: Commercial involvement in the development of the internet brings many benefits; a balance between commercial profit and public benefit is critical.
Principle 10: Magnifying the public benefit aspects of the internet is an important goal, worthy of time, attention and commitment.
This is the third year that we’re sharing data about the make-up of our workforce and how we’re making Mozilla a more inclusive workplace. We’re committed to sharing how we’re doing in our work to increase diversity at Mozilla and to ensure it’s an inclusive environment where everyone feels like they can do their best work. Research shows that diverse teams are more innovative, productive and outperform homogeneous ones. To help us achieve our mission to “ensure the internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all”, we need a diversity of people involved. Also, caring about diversity and inclusion is just the right thing to do.
