About Rally

Rally enables people to contribute, gain insight and value from their own data. The same few organizations collect and have controlled access to our data that they also benefit from. We aim to counter this power imbalance and work towards building independent insights about connected life.

Rally now & in the future

Right now

Today, people can donate their data through browser extensions to public interest studies that explore big societal problems that start on the Internet.

Rally’s first researchers are studying how misinformation flows, social media platform transparency, and local news sustainability, with more to come.

In the future

We are exploring questions like:

  • How might people get a share of the benefits that their data generates?
  • How might Rally set a new bar for consent and transparency that becomes the industry standard for all companies?
  • What would it take for Rally to build independent insights about connected life?
  • How might Rally provide value across browsers and across devices?
  • How might Rally influence broader technology policy?

We’re committed and excited to tackle the challenge in front of us. We are looking to find new teammates who will join us. We would be thrilled to hear from you to talk about Rally and to answer questions about opportunities.

A brand built by trust

Rally is a team within Mozilla, one of the most trusted companies in privacy

Mozilla’s mission is to ensure the internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent.

We are a global community of technologists, thinkers and builders working together to keep the Internet alive and accessible, so people worldwide can be informed contributors and creators of the web. We believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to individual growth and our collective future.

Mozilla was founded in 1998 as a community open source project, and while the past twenty years have changed the ways we use the internet, they haven’t changed our values. We have a responsibility to ensure that the things we’ve created are being used as a force for good.
