Workplace Resources was so excited to share our goals with the Mozilla community at Summit! Talking to members of our community face-to-face really helped us connect with the needs of Mozillians world wide. We were inspired by the talks and break-out groups that we joined and we came away with a better understanding of Mozilla’s history, mission and goals. If you missed it you can see WPR’s presentation right here.
If we didn’t get a chance to see you at Summit, or if you have new ideas you would like to share with us about our MozSpaces, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can always stop by at our desks to say hello!No comments
On the weekend of September 14, 3,350 people toured the Paris MozSpace as part of the European Heritage Days, which encourage Parisians to take interest in local historical buildings. Our Paris MozSpace is located in the former Hotel de Mercy-Argenteau, which was owned by the Austrian ambassador to Queen Marie-Antoinette.
Mozillians were on hand to demo our products and answer questions about Mozilla. 1,250 people showed up on Saturday, and more than 2,100 on Sunday. Another splendid example of Mozilla partnering with members of the community to create a hugely successful event that enriches everyone involved.
Mozilla’s new space in Mountain View at┬á331 E Evelyn Avenue is developing at an exciting rate! 110 days of demolition, reconstruction and reorganization started on August 12. We are aiming for a February 2014 move-in date.
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:
- Updated plans (1st & 2nd floors + outdoor site plan) have also been posted to the mana page.
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.

Did you know that your Mozilla badge will give you access to all of our MozSpaces in North America and Europe? Our ultimate goal is for “one badge to rule them all” and thus coordinating our badging systems across our worldwide spaces so that you can easily travel from site to site seamlessly.
Our offices each have different building access requirements (you can read about those here) but the doors to our MozSpaces will always be open to employees with your Mozilla badge.
The Bottom Line:┬á┬á Please PACK YOUR MOZILLA BADGE on your next business trip. And let us know via Service Now if your badge is not functioning for a specific site and we’ll fix it as soon as soon as we can.1 comment
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.
