Rust is a programming language that empowers everyone to build reliable and efficient software. Rust supports easy parallel execution while statically ruling out segmentation faults, data races, and numerous other classes of bugs.
Rust is also a massive open source project with many contributors doing all sorts of things, ranging from working on the compiler to organizing events. The Rust Team at Mozilla is trying to do our part to help support and grow this friendly, diverse, and effective open source organization.
This job position is a bit unconventional. We aren't looking for a specific set of skills. What we are looking for is someone who can be involved in the Rust project, identify important problems, build a consensus around the best solutions, and help see those solutions get implemented. The nature of those problems, and solutions, however, depends a lot on you!
Given the open-ended nature of this role, we do have a specific request. As part of your application, please include a cover letter that describes the kinds of things you think you would like to work on within the Rust project. If you prefer, you could also describe a similar-sounding role that you've played in other jobs, communities, or projects.
Mozilla exists to build the Internet as a public resource accessible to all because we believe that open and free is better than closed and controlled. When you work at Mozilla, you give yourself a chance to make a difference in the lives of Web users everywhere. And you give us a chance to make a difference in your life every single day. Join us to work on the Web as the platform and help create more opportunity and innovation for everyone online.
