Mozilla may be a huge brand but we're actually a relatively small group of people doing this work all around the world. Which is why we now have WebFWD, a program to help innovators of the open web get a chance to hook in to the resources of Mozilla (space, mentors, public reach, food and housing, and more) to help bring their products to the world. With this rolling program of projects Mozilla can be a driving force in getting more open web to the people who need them.
Right now we need a visionary and hard working Program Manager to become the leader of this movement. I'm attaching the posting below, get in touch with p at mozilla dot com with your resume for consideration.
