I’m writing to let you know that I’m closing out my 9 years, 9 months of employment at Mozilla on May 14th.
I don’t have words that describe how working with you has changed me. Almost a decade ago when I applied to work here, I did so at 3AM and expected to get a, “thanks, but no thanks” reply. Instead, I got to meet and work with an amazing team of people and a global community numbering in the thousands who are endlessly passionate about linguistic accessibility. It’s been a dream come true! I’ve been able to do more here than I ever expected, and I was only able to do any of it thanks to the support of a strong team and all of you.
I have really appreciated all of the time I’ve been able to spend with you in-person at community meetups. Learning about your languages, your cultures, and your personal and professional lives has been a pleasure and has opened my eyes more than I think almost anything else could. I count many of you as good friends and I hope to continue to stay in touch with you.
I don’t plan to go away completely. While employed at Mozilla, I’ve helped with ‘es’ and ‘es-MX’ localization and I want to continue to contribute translations to those locales. I’ve also enjoyed supporting the Mozilla Nativo community, and hope to continue to mentor and support them.
I want to avoid sharing my personal information on a public forum, but if you’d like to stay in touch outside of Mozilla, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before May 14th, and I’ll send you my personal email and social media.
Thank you all,
