Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird

If you’re looking for a job, I bet Mozilla’s hiring.

Mozilla seems to be having a problem retaining their employees. Last week, the only two developers paid to work on Thunderbird quit, and today Firefox build engineer Paul Reed announced that he’s leaving. I wonder what’s up…

    I don’t think anything in particular “is up”.

    We were 10 people 4 years ago. We’re approaching 125 today. We’ve had a very few people leave the organization in that four years.

    In the same week that Scott and David announced their departure, we hired a half dozen additional full-time staff. Mozilla’s growing fast and we’re early in ramping up major new initiatives so my guess is that pace is going to accelerate rather than slow down — at least for a while.

    But, yes, if you’re interested in Firefox, the Open Web, Mobile, or Email and Messaging, please do let us know. We’re always hiring.

  2. Asa: I didn’t mean to imply that Mozilla is dying or anything like that; my “I wonder what’s up” was more along the lines of “I wonder what startup we’re going to see in the next 6 months that is headed by a bunch of ex-Mozilla employees.”
