About the job

The Mozilla Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit organization. Our mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Our work is guided by the Mozilla Manifesto and in 2020, we launched a multi-year investment strategy focused on advancing Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence globally. Join us and become part of our mission to promote openness, innovation, and opportunity online!

A key part of our strategy is to invest in the innovators at the frontlines of working to make the internet more open, inclusive, decentralized, and secure. The Responsible Computer Science Challenge, a global initiative focused on integrating ethics into computer science education, is a core part of this work. By helping to fuel a new wave of engineers, designers, and other technologists who consider ethics as a primary design constraint, the Responsible Computer Science Challenge is driving a culture shift in technology that will lead to more trustworthy AI and a healthier internet.

We seek a Program Lead to oversee the next phase of the Responsible Computer Science Challenge. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience leading complex, global social change initiatives. You will have expertise in computer science, higher education pedagogy, or/and relevant tech industry experience that will allow you to serve as a peer, mentor, and thought partner to a cohort of fellows, grantees, educators, and other Responsible Computer Science community members seeking to change the way technologists are educated. You will also have experience building and managing teams in multiple countries and holding diverse partner relationships with funders and other partners.

You will work across the organization to connect our work internally and with external movement partners on activities related to our Trustworthy AI goals. Your expertise will help shape our strategy and grow our community across issue areas and geographies during an exciting period of growth for Mozilla and the Responsible Computer Science Challenge! You will report to the Director, Fellowships and Awards.
