Welcome to eyeo.
Hi, it looks like you’ve found our blog. Why not step into our office, take a (virtual) seat, and learn all about eyeo.
Who We Are (Our Vision)
Our mission at eyeo is to put YOU in charge of a fair, profitable web. We do this by building software that encourages positive and informative advertising, privacy protection and creator rewards.
We have three main goals that guide eyeo in every decision that we make.
- Everything we do must benefit the user – that’s you!
- Everything we do must be transparent, honest and fair.
- Everything we do must contribute to a better web for everyone.
Very noble, we think you’ll agree. It’s all very well to say this, but how do we actually put this into practice every day?
Well, the products we make (more on those later) are open source, meaning that you can go take a direct look at what we are doing through the development process. All of our products are designed to improve some aspect of the web and improve the user experience. We have products that can block annoying ads, protect your privacy and give back to creators. We don’t believe in scorched-earth ad blocking – we understand that to have a free and open web, creators need to get paid. What we don’t believe in is a web that is controlled by the few, or an experience that is ruined by intrusive, malicious advertising.
What We Do (Our Products)
Our products are designed to provide a fair and profitable web for everyone. This means protecting user experience as well as providing creators and publishers the means to continue making free content. Let’s take a quick look at our products:

Our Team (Working at eyeo)
Our team and our culture is what makes working for eyeo so special. We have assembled more than 100 specialists from around the world to make our vision of a better web into a reality. We have three ideals when it comes to work.
Your office is wherever you are
Yes, we have 3 amazing offices in Cologne, Berlin and Malmo. We have all the perks – free (awesome) coffee, fully functional kitchens, games (table tennis, pinball, PS4), a small library, company bikes and much more. That said, if you don’t want to work in the office, there’s no reason why you should.
I’m writing this blog post from my home in London, and we have employees from Russia, Nigeria, Israel, Pakistan and more. Stick a pin in a map and chances are we have someone there. With a generous budget for home office furniture, a healthy remote culture and two “everyone involved” parties a year, your office can truly be wherever you are.
We at eyeo truly welcome your qualifications, your experience and your motivation in whatever shape that comes. We are all individuals. There is no dress code (except actually wearing clothes) and it doesn’t matter if you are a quiet, introspective type or an outgoing party animal. There’s a place for you here at eyeo.
Come as you are
Related to the idea of being yourself, we don’t want you to change. We are an equal opportunity employer, and we make no assumptions based on gender identity, sexuality, race, religion or anything else. We celebrate the diversity of humanity, so you can be sure that whoever you are, you will be welcome at eyeo.
