Working at eyeo

Join us in changing the Internet!

We are 79 people who manage the business and development ends of an open source product that is used on 100 million devices. And we’re looking to change a billion-dollar industry. Like them odds? Then maybe we should change that number to 80 …

eyeo is an equal opportunity employer, and encourages people of all genders, ethnicities, origins, orientations, etc., 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 79 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.

Benefits for employees:

  • Work on a product millions of people love
  • Immediate responsibility that takes years to get in the corporate world
  • Work where you want. We can help you relocate to Cologne or Berlin, or pay for a coworking space
  • Free choice of hardware and software
  • Easygoing atmosphere, flat hierarchy, no dress code, ping pong
  • A “job ticket” that gives you a free ride on all regional transportation, also on weekends

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?
