Job Details

The Mozilla Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit organization. Our mission is to ensure that the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Join us and become part of our mission to promote openness, innovation, and opportunity online!

Twenty years ago, this meant building a browser and protecting the open web. Today, it also includes making sure AI and data driven technology is more trustworthy. In order to focus on places where Mozilla can impact the next era of our work, we are increasingly working on the topic of trustworthy AI. For us, this means especially two things: human agency is a core part of how AI is built and integrated, and corporate accountability is real and enforced.

Mozilla is seeking a passionate, donor service professional that will serve as the first point of contact for thousands of Mozilla and Thunderbird supporters worldwide. With a deep commitment to excellent “customer service,” the Donor Care Specialist will help our supporters make donations and answer questions about our programs. You’ll get to work with people from around the globe, including communicating in different languages, handling foreign currencies, and appreciating different donation philosophies. This position is full-time with a preference for someone working in the Eastern Time Zone. The role has evenly split duties between the Mozilla Foundation and Thunderbird and will report to Mozilla's Director of Partnerships.

Mozilla specific duties:

  • Assist in the creation and editing of training documentation related to resolving donor issues.
