Our Taipei office held the year end banquet- Weiya (Chinese: ĺ°ľç‰™) on the 3rd February. The banquet is a Taiwanese tradition for corporations, annually held before the Chinese new year vacation.
2016 is the Year of the Monkey according to Chinese zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac,Â known asÂ Sheng Xiao, isÂ based on a twelve-year cycle, each year in thatÂ cycle related to an animal sign. These signs areÂ the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dogÂ and pig.
Here are some photos of our Mozillians celebrating Weiya:No comments
We have a new conference suite (Building 12) in the Berlin office. Despite the elevator being out of order during the furniture move, we still managed to move all the furniture up the stairs with the help of our Berlin employees. (Thanks everyone!)
In Building 12, we added 7 new conference rooms all named after Berlin city districts; we also added 4 new phone booths to our original space, Building 10. The two buildings are only a few minutes walk away!
We celebrated International Data Privacy Day at our MozSpaces worldwide on the 28th January by encouraging users to update all their software. Local volunteer experts set up a genius bar and helped out with the upgrades across offices, we also celebrated it with delicious sweet treats and cool stickers!
YOU have the power to make the internet safer!
You’re a Mozillian who works remote. How do you get an access card to make those MozSpace visits easier?
Simple! During one of your visits to a MozSpace submit a Service Now request for one.
- Go to the Service Now homepage > Workplace Resources > Access Cards/Badges
- Select ‘Change Access’
- In the Description field let us know the following:
- That you’re a remote Mozillian who hasn’t received an access card yet
- Which office you’re currently visiting
- When you are returning home
Your new access card will give you access to all Mozilla offices with card reader systems, which includes Mountain View, San Francisco, Portland, Vancouver BC, Toronto, London, Paris, Auckland, and (next year) Taipei!No comments
What is Workplace Resources?
Weâ€™re the team formerly known as Facilities. Like most teams in Mozilla, though, we do more than just one thing. Sure, we cover facilities and maintenance, but we do so much more. We coordinate the logistics behind events, office set-up, and catering. We manage moves, adds and changes, lease spaces and buy furniture. If you need a badge or key, have safety or security concerns or need help with your printer, call us. We know where to find the best espresso and cheapest burrito in town. Weâ€™re here for you and happy to help!
