Mozillians Coming Together in each MozSpace!

April 27th, 2017 | Category: Mozilla Spaces

As our organization grows, we are always looking for ways to increase employee engagement, productivity and overall morale in the workplace.

With your valuable feedback, each of our sites was able to offer activities that were impactful and cost effective. Here's a look at what we’ve been up to:

The simplest things such as taking a 15 min walk after lunch for fresh air or doing mini challenges such as planking or 5 min wall-sit challenges with a group can be a nice breather. While some may get together for a breakfast treat, others will get together in the evening and share their passion for wine or beer or engage in competitive board games. What about meditating together? That helps too!

We are always looking for new and fun ways of enhancing employee happiness and engagement in the workplace. It's important to us. If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free reach out to your local Offices Services Coordinator. As Mozillians, let's continue to share our community spirit and also welcome new staff to join in.

2013 Year in Review: MozSpaces and WPR

January 10th, 2014 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events

2013 Year in Review

2013 was another “monumental” year for WPR, the MozSpaces extended team, and Mozillians around the world.   We continued to execute on our overall MozSpace Strategy (established in early 2011) with grand openings of 3 new MozSpaces (Paris, SF 1&2 and Portland). We locked and loaded a huge collaborative planning and construction effort on our largest project to date (New Mountain View – 331 Evelyn).

Through it all, we executed pretty flawlessly on our plans and our budget (hitting our construction target dates and move-in dates for these 3 spaces).  Most importantly, we produced minimal disruption for the nearly 300 Mozillians who received a new space in 2013!   However, not everything was perfect per our master plans. We encountered an extremely long delay in our planned Berlin location (The Factory) due to construction hold-ups by the Berlin developer (landlord) which forced Mozilla to wait for its completion.   Once this building is complete in 2014, we are still planning on executing our MozBerlin interior construction plans.   All in all, 2013 was one of our most exciting and best years yet in the WPR and MozSpace world.


On April 2nd, MozParis opened in the beautiful 9th Arrondissement. This historic building (built in 1778) mixes the striking architecture of the 18th century with modern day luxuries. It is said that Marie Antoinette herself once inhabited this beautiful building. The space combines work stations for up to 50 people and a large community hall that can host up to 150 for events, meet-ups and work weeks.



After months of competitive bidding, behind-the-scenes planning and unlimited hours of construction, MozSF expanded onto the 1st and 2nd floors formerly known as the Gordon-Biersch restaurant.  On June 10th the floors officially opened to accommodate our planned Mozillian growth and team requirements.   We could almost hear the huge collective sigh of relief from the packed 7th and 3rd floors!  In addition we now have many more new conference rooms with Vidyo capabilities and new Event, SF Commons, and Mozilla Community (public) spaces.  We’ll continue our tradition of “open planning” for the “Mozilla Community Space” as we begin to focus on  an intended use for this “old Starbucks area” so we can fulfill our commitments to Mozillians, SF and our global MozSpace vision and strategy.

 We removed the old Gordon Biersch sign……


….and constructed our new Mozilla monument to celebrate our amazing history and the efforts of all Mozillians past, present, and future!  Sneak peek (Our official celebration of this monument is being scheduled for February 4, 2014)




Our intense 2013 build-out efforts continued into the summer of 2013 as we proudly opened MozPortland in the Pearl District on July 22nd.  This MozSpace, which can house ~45 Mozillians is in the restored Brewery Block building and has a vibrant and diversely talented group of Mozillians working there and having fun in the space.  The office is located blocks away from Powell’s, breweries (it is Portland after all) and the iconic food trucks.




We will literally touch history in Berlin.  The Factory, where part of the Berlin wall once stood, will be a new tech hub.  Some of the soon-to-be neighbors will be: SoundCloud, 6Wunderkinder, Four Sektor, Toast, Urge iO, Views, and Silicon Allee. Aligning with the Mozilla mission and history, the building will have an ‘open source’ look and feel with a restaurant, basketball courts, and shared spaces (all to be built by the landlord).  The building design was conceived to foster relationships within the Berlin technical community. Construction is planned to begin in Q1 2014 with an expected grand opening in Q4 2014. Stay tuned for updates. We are excited about our final “MozSpace” of MozBerlin.



Looking ahead to 2014 … Finishing our Original 2011 MozSpaces Strategic Plan:

In 2014, we’ll be putting the finishing touches on our 3-year journey and completing our original 2011 MozSpace Strategic Plan to provide a global footprint of  highly effective and productive collaboration and community areas for our global and highly distributed Mozillians.   What began as only 1 real “Mozilla Space” in 2011 will have blossomed to nearly a dozen “Moz Spaces” of various sizes, each with their distinct localized culture, and anchored by familiar Mozilla “basics” of workspace, collaboration space, communication technologies, and overall logistics (food, drinks, events, shipping).

The grand openings of our new Mountain View space for ~300 Mozillians (our 4th generation of a Mountain View MozSpace) and our Berlin MozSpace will be highlights in 2014.  We will continue our active communication and collaborative planning to be fully transparent so we create the spaces together as Mozillians.

Just as our online surveys, focus groups, Wiki info, and Brown Bag presentations contributed to the future of MV2014 and our prior 2012 and 2013 spaces, we will turn our collective and collaborative focus on how to make the spaces we’ve built HUM in order to maximize our potential and our opportunities.

Here’s a link to the Mana page where you can see LIVE footage of construction and check in for all the latest updates. Watch as the place beings to really take true MozSpace shape…
