The nonprofit Mozilla Foundation is passionate about the Internet remaining a global public resource that is open and accessible to all. Our work is guided by the Mozilla Manifesto.
The Mozilla Foundation strategy is to invest in the leaders at the forefront of the Internet Health movement. It does so by amplifying the projects that these individuals lead, and also by investing in the growth and development of these leaders. Fellowships are a key way that the foundation supports these leaders.
The Fellowship Coordinator will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the Mozilla fellowship programs. You’ll spend your days maximizing the full-cycle experience of the fellows — from recruitment to selection to the fellowship year — as well as engage with the communities at large through events, learning opportunities and network convenings.
The ideal coordinator will have experience handling a variety of tasks related to programs and events. This person will be resourceful, organized and comfortable working quickly with a team passionate about internet health. Most importantly, this person will have a passion for creating a high quality, transformative experience to help engage and support fellows to create a more open and healthy internet.
