Re-sponsor-bilities

October 28th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces

It is always so exciting to see our MozSpaces buzzing with with contributors and hackers! Active areas that support our huge open source community world wide are a key part of Mozilla’s modus operandi. WPR works with event sponsors to make sure that we remain welcoming to the community, as well as for Mozillians all over the world.

Here are the re-sponsor-bilities of an event sponsor:
– Make an event request in ServiceNow. This ensures your event does not conflict with any other events in the space. It also helps WPR coordinate with caterers, janitorial, building staff, etc.
– Schedule your room on Zimbra.
– Stay with your event! You are the line of communication between WPR and our visitors. Please do not leave before the event is over.
– Return the space to a clean and welcoming state after your event.

MozSpaces are designed to be welcoming to the community.

October 28th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces

The chaos before the creation

The new space is being designed around employee feedback, with an emphasis on workspace useability. Acoustic privacy around individual work spaces, as well as more conference rooms with Vidyo will make the MV2014 a haven for individual as well as collaborative projects.

Further updates are posted at the MV2014 Evelyn Avenue mana page

  • Thanks to our general contractor and our fantastic IT team you can now view the on-site construction as it happens on live webcams:
    • This is a view from the new Commons area towards the lobby.
    • Here’s a view of phone booths.
    • And this is the entry walkway from the lobby.
  • Updated plans (1st & 2nd floors + outdoor site plan) have also been posted to the mana page.
The MV2014 team loves hearing from you!  Please continue to email feedback, suggestions, questions to: mv2014@mozilla.com

MozPDX opens in the Pearl

August 26th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events

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.

San Francisco’s First and Second floor expansion

August 26th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events

Doors to our first and second floor spaces opened in early June after completing our biggest office move to date.20130608_180046After several iterations and feedback from over 100 employees, the San Francisco seating plan materialized. We successfully boxed up and moved 166 Mozillians as WPR and Service Desk teams worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to a flawless Monday opening.

Set in the remodeled and Mozillafied former Gordon Biersch restaurant, the two new floors are a welcoming space for employees and guests alike. Reception has been transferred to the first floor, and a new community space has opened for events, BrownBags and collaboration.

San Francisco New Space Is Ready!

June 06th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events

The San Francisco office is ready!   We are firing up all engines for yet another exciting move as we continue to expand our presence in the Hills Bros building.

After months of collaboration, design, feedback, and construction, final iterations of the floor and seating plans were published on Friday May 30th in preparation for the massive move this Friday,  June 7  through  Monday, June 10th.  As usual, we will have post-move support during the week of June 10 as everyone cozies into their new space.photo-2

The two new floors in San Francisco will provide increased capacity for work stations in one of our fastest growing offices. Additionally, we have designed collaboration and innovation areas as well as a beautiful community space with patio access to the Embarcadero. Our main lobby, reception desk, and community space  will also be moving to the ground floor for an awesome upgraded experience.  We have a lot to show off including a new Team MeetUp Event Space and even a space that will be eventually open to the Public during the day.   Of course, don’t forget about our 7th Floor Outdoor Deck!

Stay tuned for more photos, local press coverage, and an official SF Ground Floor Grand Opening information in the weeks ahead!
