Built in the lovingly restored Brewery Block building in the Pearl District, this MozSpace, like our others, is centrally located┬á and easy to get to by transit or bike.┬á Iconic PowellÔÇÖs City of Books is located one block away, as well as dozens of restaurants, retail stores and breweries within a short walk.┬á 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.
WPRÔÇÖs 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 ÔÇťDukeÔÇŁ Leto.
Mozilla has deep roots in Portland’s leading open source community.┬á We are excited to double down in the heart of the fastest growing technology community of startups on the west coast.┬á┬á There’s an amazing energy happening here in this intersection of technology, mobile, startups, and open source.┬á Come visit us whenever you are in the area.
For even more reading pleasure, we received an incredible amount of positive news coverage since our launch.┬á Check it out below:

Doors to our first and second floor spaces opened in early June after completing our biggest office move to date.After 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.
Kicking off several months of celebrations across the Globe, Mozillians in Mountain View and San Francisco enjoyed cupcakes and champagne in celebration of all that Mozilla has been and will become.
For 15 years Mozilla has led the industry in the fight for an open web. Read more about our celebrations here and stay tuned for information about Moz15 events at the MozSpace near you.

The San Francisco office is ready!┬á┬á 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,┬á June 7┬á through┬á Monday, June 10th.┬á As usual, we will have post-move support during the week of June 10 as everyone cozies into their new space.
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┬á will also be moving to the ground floor for an awesome upgraded experience.┬á 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.┬á┬á 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!
In the weeks since the move into the beautiful office at 16 Boulevard Montmartre, a bevy of checklist items and finishing touches have been completed, with a few more to go before our official public Grand Opening events during the week of June 10th.
Our Mozilla Paris employees are finally under one roof, able to entertain team meetups, workweeks, visitors and events in a space that is truly unique.
We’re looking forward to celebrating all the hard work and dedication that went into making this historic piece of Paris a part of Mozilla’s own history.
Hopefully you have seen the beautiful photographs of the Paris office that were published in the Journal du Net upon the office’s opening. A far cry from more traditional office spaces of yesterday.
We hope to see you in Paris soon!

WPR often gets questions about how to set up events in our spaces. Perhaps you belong to an open-source meetup that needs event space? Or maybe you are planning a hack day?
Planning events is easy with WPR’s help! Just follow these simple steps:
We need to know a little bit about the event first. Date, time, number of attendees, etc. This information will help us plan the event logistics (conflicting event scheduling, catering, special event needs) and will allow us to add the events to our site calendars.
2. Zimbra Calendar (Save the Date)
It is important that you reserve your desired room through Zimbra to avoid scheduling conflicts. We are asking all event sponsor/requestors to reserve rooms using Zimbra
Need help reserving rooms in Zimbra? Find out more here.
3. Event Details:┬á┬á Ask Us! Keep WPR in on your event details. We’re here to help, and have years of experience planning events in our spaces. We’ll make sure catering and drinks are ordered if Mozilla is sponsoring.┬á We can help set up the room for you, and we will think of the things that you haven’t because that is our job.
4. IT Support or Air Mozilla? Are you presenting something?┬á Do you want a video archive to show others later?┬á Do you need IT Support (Service Desk) or other Air Mozilla support, simply click on the links at the top of your Service Now event page to get our IT experts involved.
Any questions? Please ask. We’re here to help!┬á┬á Email Us.No comments
