Jared Hirsch

Test Pilot Engineer

Bio

I'm a staff engineer at Mozilla. I like building new products. I currently work on Firefox Lockbox and help maintain Firefox Screenshots.

I was previously the first engineer on the Test Pilot team, where I helped build the Test Pilot website and some early experiments that made dramatic changes to the desktop UI (Universal Search and Min-Vid). (The Universal Search work was interesting enough that I blogged about some of it.) I also helped graduate the Page Shot experiment into desktop Firefox as Firefox Screenshots.

Before that, I worked on Firefox Chronicle (web, addon), a short-lived, web-based precursor to Activity Stream; a couple of Firefox OS system apps (Find My Device and Firefox Accounts); and Mozilla Persona, a decentralized authentication system for the web (which lives on in Firefox Accounts).
