On March 14th MVers said goodbye to Castro street and, just days later, on March 17th said hello to their new digs on Evelyn Ave! Many teams worked tirelessly to make a smooth transition to the beautiful new space.
The space was designed to meet the needs of the MV Mozillians. On March 13th, 2013 we launched our MV2014 kickoff meeting. Input and feedback was gathered into a comprehensive survey by MK Think Architects. The 50-page survey results led to key findings of what has worked in other MozSpaces and what needs still weren’t being met. What we discovered was a need for quiet workstations, collaboration areas, a micro gym, larger bike room, multiple break areas and outdoor seating. MTV2 has it all. Enjoy the photo gallery!

Matea Lisica, Shannon Clayton and Lori Jashinsky along with Arzhel Younsi and Ed Lim (our IT brothers) were on the ground to ensure the move went smoothly and all systems were in place.

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.

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¬†331 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.

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‚Äôs 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.
WPR‚Äôs 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 ‚ÄúDuke‚ÄĚ 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.
