Hi, my name is Mark Finkle. I lead the team of talented developers and testers working on Firefox Mobile (Android and iOS).
As a manager, my main goals are to make sure the team is productive and enjoying the work. I help clarify the direction and priority of tasks while trying to keep obstacles from blocking the path. I also strive to create growth opportunities for my team, to help them reach their own individual goals.
I coordinate with other platform leads, UX team and project management to create a roadmap for building and shipping the application. I manage the hiring process, working with our team to recruit, interview and on-board new engineers.
Before Mozilla, I worked at several commercial software companies building Windows-based applications.
