Senior Visual Designer Mozilla

The Mozilla Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit organization. Our mission is to ensure that the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Join us and become part of our mission to promote openness, innovation, and opportunity online!


20 years ago, this meant building a browser and protecting the open web. Today, it also includes making sure AI and data driven technology is more trustworthy. In order to focus on places where Mozilla can impact the next era of our work, we are increasingly working on the topic of trustworthy AI. For us, this means especially two things: human agency is a core part of how AI is built and integrated, and corporate accountability is real and enforced.


We’re seeking a full-time permanent Senior Visual Designer. As a designer on the Digital Engagement team, you will work closely with our internal team of writers, content creators, advocacy campaigners, and UX/UI designers to advance our marketing, social media, email, and web platforms to increase Mozilla’s impact!

  • Ability to communicate efficiently and experience working in a fast paced, agile environment to manage deadlines and deliverables with partners for rapid response initiatives, marketing, and campaigns.
  • Ability to follow and build off style guides, ensure visual and brand consistency, and collaborate to iterate and evolve it to build upon the design system.
  • Ability to conceptualize, iterate, present and defend design concepts clearly and to also collaborate to work and plan with the design team and various cross-functional team members (content, campaigner, marketer) on deliverables to create thoughtful visual work that delivers on overall engagement strategy.
  • Ability to organize files and production deadlines, give/receive constructive feedback to designers or partners, document workflow and iterate in an open process.
