Mozilla looking for Senior Full Stack Web Developer
Mozilla is looking for a Senior Full Stack Web Developer for MDN to help us with maintaining and evolving the open-source platform behind the web standard documentation developers love.

As a senior developer on this team, you will work closely with team members from a variety of disciplines such as writers, UX, product management, and marketing (design) to build and evolve MDN and other parts of Mozilla’s tech stack. We also hope you will coach and mentor team members and volunteers who contribute to the MDN platform (and learn from them too).
