Global Campaigner

Posted June 25




Mozilla is building a better internet.

Mozilla is one of the most trusted brands on the web with a 15-year history of building communities and products that people rely on and use every day.Mozilla’s Global Campaigner will a have big impact on the movement to protect the world’s largest public resource: the free and open Internet. We are living in a tipping point for the web. You can help shape that story.

For the past two years Mozilla’s role in global Internet policy has grown as the threats to the open Web have also expanded. We are on the frontlines on issues like surveillance, encryption, and data privacy. Mozilla played an important role in the net neutrality victory in the U.S. that will influence net neutrality policy for years to come. We also want millions more people to stand up and fight for a free and open Web, so we’re also launching exciting multi-media public outreach campaigns to demystify complex issues like encryption. We’re scaling up, and we need someone who will take our grassroots strategy to a new level.It’s important to know that doing grassroots advocacy at Mozilla is not like doing advocacy at a typical non-profit organization. Mozilla has a unique position from which to influence the Internet policy landscape:

  • Mozilla builds products like the Firefox browser that compete in a global marketplace. We proved that you can respect user choice and privacy, compete with big corporate goliaths, and win. We don’t just try to influence corporate behavior, we model that behavior.
  • Mozilla builds products and empowers people – both crucial strategies to achieve what was set out in our Manifesto. Our product customer base can be activated for grassroots action, while our grassroots campaigns can turn new audiences on to our products. It’s pretty awesome.
  • Mozilla was founded 15 years ago as a nonprofit champion of open source software and we “work open.” Our projects are radically transparent. We share the strategies, tools, and even code behind what we build with pretty much anyone.
  • While Mozilla has its own unique approach to movement-building, we work closely with major players like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Ford Foundation, Free Press, Access, and many others. There’s a ton of mutual respect and excitement about what’s possible when we work together in coalition.

Momentum for the open Web movement is stronger than ever. Threats to the open nature of the Internet are looming, real, and already impacting the lives of millions of people every day. In the immediate future we’re going to be working hard on surveillance reform, encryption, copyright, and online privacy. That’s why we’re growing our team now – to build out our online and field strategy.The Global Campaigner reports to the Global Campaign Manager.
