If you want to get a job with some of the biggest names in the software industry, then you need to know that there are several openings. We were previously reporting that Skype is opening up 350 positions this year; Skype really wants everyone to know that it is hiring. We were also previously reporting that the Google-owned video sharing site YouTube is looking to expand its team as well – by 30% as Jeff Ferguson, YouTube HR, announced.

We now have to report that the Mozilla Foundation is looking to hire as well. The company behind what I consider to be the best browser around, wants to bring on more people on its Add-ons team. Mozilla said that working on the Add-ons team "is a fun unique and rewarding experience."

“If you’re passionate about customization, thrive solving unique challenges, and want to improve the web for hundreds of millions of users, we’d love to hear from you. We’re currently hiring for several positions, preferably based in Mountain View, California, but considering other Mozilla offices and remote candidates too!” said Mozilla.

The positions Mozilla is opening up are as follows (click the links for additional info and to apply):

Add-ons Community Manager
This position requires you to engage with the global community of users and developers and solicit feedback, provide support, organize events, share findings with the team, lead forum discussions, seek out users looking for help with add-ons, help new users wihth add-ons, report on common issues, blog on how to use a power feature, update the FAQ, and plan upcoming contests for add-on developers.

Performance and Stability Program Manager
This position requires you to identify and correct problematic add-ons that cause the browser to crash, lead to performance problems, and generally make the user experience unpleasant. You will have to analyze reports, communicate with developers on how to improve their performance, triage and assess the validity of blocklist requests, and generally help make add-ons better.

Product Manager
This position requires you to enhance the user experience of the 87% of Firefox 4 users who use add-ons. You will have to gather requirements, write specs, and work with Mozilla’s designers and developers to create products and features for the add-ons gallery and for the Firefox browser.
