Community Volunteer Sysadmin

Mozilla Community Volunteer Sysadmins

Ever wonder what it's like to manage Mozilla's server infrastructure? Are ones and zeros constantly flying through your head? Take your involvement with Mozilla to the next level! Do what we do as systems admins and sit behind the scenes of one of the biggest entities in the world and keep the lights on.

A a part of the Mozilla Reps program, Community Sysadmins will help Mozilla's IT/Infrastructure & Ops team manage and support the infrastructure behind Firefox. You'll help us build out new systems and push out new websites. You'll help work on our bug queue and help with pager duty.

Benefits of Being a Community Sysadmin Reps
