Mozilla/Firefox (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contribute/) is a company that may be very well-known for its web browser but what people may not know is that this browser is produced by a non-profit organization. This organization has hundreds of volunteers online and not all of them are C++ experts. Mozilla believes in the power the internet holds as well as its potential, which is why they want to help everyone access it no matter where they are.
There are various roles that you can take on as a volunteer for Mozilla. Not every volunteer needs to be tech savvy. Some current activities include testing the browser, doing tech talks, building extensions, coding, and reporting any bugs to improve user experience. These are just some of the volunteer opportunities and they always seem to be adding more awesome campaigns.
The benefit of volunteering with Mozilla/Firefox is that you can help them on their mission to make the internet a more accessible place for everyone.
The time commitment depends on the tasks. Contributing to common voice can vary. Using and testing nightly volunteers test for between 1-3 hours. Technology talk volunteers need 1-2 hours. Volunteers who build extensions use between 1.5 and 3 hours. Rust volunteers required 2-3 hours and WebVR camp volunteers need 3-4 hours. Coders have a variable schedule and report bug volunteers need 2-3 hours.
One of the things that makes Mozilla different than other “corporations” is the fact that they want to put people ahead of potential profits. They created a specific set of principles when they launched in 1998, and they still stick to these founding principles decades later. These principles emphasize privacy, safety, and inclusion.
