MozPDX opens in the Pearl

IMG_6998Our newest MozSpace opened on July 22 in Portland. The city’s 27 employees now have a roomy space to call their own.

Built in the lovingly restored Brewery Block building in the Pearl District, this MozSpace, like our others, is centrally located  and easy to get to by transit or bike.  Iconic Powell’s City of Books is located one block away, as well as dozens of restaurants, retail stores and breweries within a short walk.  The office is an easy 5 minute stroll to a massive cluster of food trucks. Suffice it to say that lunch and happy hour options will not be a problem for Portlandians.

The Portland space has 39 workstations and 9 conference rooms as well as a large community area for events and workweeks. It also boasts a groovy bike shed area, shower and plenty of storage space.IMG_7018

WPR’s newest team member, Samantha Verbeck, is keeping Portlanders content with a plethora of healthy snacks and drinks. And of course there is the the classic Mozilla coffee bar with beans hand delivered by active Mozilla contributor and owner of BrewPony coffee, Jonathan “Duke” Leto.

Mozilla has deep roots in Portland’s leading open source community.  We are excited to double down in the heart of the fastest growing technology community of startups on the west coast.   There’s an amazing energy happening here in this intersection of technology, mobile, startups, and open source.  Come visit us whenever you are in the area.
