Working for Mozilla in London
March 6, 2013 - March 7, 2013
Getting together with the colleagues you’ve been working together during the last years is always a great chance to strengthen the team collaboration, do some focused work and leverage the future plans, all in a context that is open and productive in the same time. Mozilla work weeks are for sure the events that bring all of these together and even more than that.
I can definitely vouch for that after having the chance to participate at the March London Firefox for Android work week as a member of the SoftVision Mozilla team. Adrian Tamas and myself were invited to participate there to talk about our team plans for the this year, all these in the very welcoming Mozilla London office which I believe expresses some of the Mozilla culture.
Adrian is one of the guys in the Firefox for Android who’s been spending quite some time on the mobile automation side (using Robocop) and the results are pretty encouraging, so getting to talk specifically about this with the entire team was really important in order to get on the same page on the results so far, our challenges, the future plans and also some of the limitations we are facing. All very good discussions which obviously started already to show results.
More than this we’ve seen some great work being done on the product planning side through open discussions between the product management team, the developers, the QA engineers and some of the contributors, all sharing the same overall vision – to get better and better in providing a seamless web browsing experience on mobile devices and…more than that everything to be open and accessible to everyone. While this is a quite fulfilling feeling for each IT engineer just to be part of setting the trends in the web browsing technologies it is also the Mozilla culture that makes a tremendous difference and motivates people to go beyond their known or unknown boundaries.
I need to say that this was a great experience for us, intense, efficient and productive, within a friendly and relaxed atmosphere – which I believe Mozilla is all about. For sure looking forward to be part of similar events in the future.
