Working at eyeo

Join us in changing the Internet!

Work on products that millions of people love.

We are 94 people who create open source software that puts users in control over their online browsing experience. Our products, such as Adblock Plus, Adblock Browser and Flattr Plus, help sustain and grow a fair, open web, because they give users control while providing user-friendly monetization. Our most popular product, Adblock Plus, is currently used on over 100 million devices.

eyeo is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We strongly support diversity in the workplace and encourage candidates of all races, colors, ancestries, religions, sexes, national origins, sexual orientations, ages, citizenships, marital statuses, disabilities, gender identities or Veteran statuses to apply.

We are a small but growing company

Adblock Plus, for now our primary product, is already the most popular browser extension ever. Our goal of making online advertising a more sustainable for consumers and web providers still needs a lot of work though. So while we’re way past the development stage on the one hand, we’re still short of where we want to go.

And we don’t want to stop at Adblock Plus and better advertising! We have a ton of ideas, some already on their way, that just need the right mix of people to make them world- and industry-changers. To do so …

We need people with conviction

We’re well aware that we threaten long-established paradigms by asking if the behemoth of online advertising can change its ways. You’ll fit in here if you’re not easily intimidated and you believe that the Internet is not a static, but rather a developing space made for and in the hands of its users (who aren’t mere “consumers”).

We don’t get bored here at eyeo, but you don’t have to live here to work here

The English writer Samuel Johnson once said that, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” We’d say the same about Cologne and Berlin. Not all of us are from here; in all, our 94 people represent 24 countries, and we haven’t yet found a way to get bored — at work or after.

That being said, about half of us work from home — no matter where that home may be. We’re happy to let you work from wherever you’re most comfortable.

When we work, in Cologne, in Berlin or remotely, everyone has an equal spot at the table. New ideas and comments are always welcome, and roles evolve beyond restrictive, unimaginative “titles.” The hierarchy is flat and the politics get left at door. When we’re not working, we play some fiercely competitive ping pong, we grill, drink beer, bowl and, as of recently, race go-carts.

What we offer...

  • Work where you like — choose to work remotely (we’ll pay for a co-working space) or from one of our offices in Cologne or Berlin (relocation assistance provided).
  • Have your local travel costs covered by us if you live in Cologne or Berlin.
  • Have relevant conference visits paid for by us.
  • Further your knowledge. We’ll pay for a percentage of your (relevant) education costs.
  • Receive monthly coverage towards childcare costs.
  • Attend our company parties in Cologne (once in summer and once around Christmas). If you work remotely, your flights and hotel are covered.
  • Choose your own hardware and software.
  • Absolutely no micromanaging. We hired you, we believe in you.

Our Cologne office is part of the Leitrad Lofts, a brand new building that we and other startups call home. We created our office rooms with our own ideas and love spending time on our terrace enjoying a BBQ or cooking in our huge kitchen. The Leitrad Lofts are located in Cologne-Ehrenfeld, a district that was once connected to production and manufacturing and is today a place of refined services, as well as a major center for innovative and creative companies. Being near the motorway, three lines of public transportation and the city train offers quick access to all the go-to spots downtown. Happy hour anyone?
