Job Description

Get to know us

At eyeo, we transform the internet into a trusted, sustainable, and accessible place where users regain control over their experience, content creators and publishers are rewarded for their content, and advertisers and consumers can connect on mutually agreed terms.

eyeo’s market-leading ad-filtering technology powers products like Adblock Plus and AdBlock as well as technical integrations for popular browsers. Our solutions empower users to control their online experience and privacy while providing monetization for content creators, publishers and advertisers.

In combining our partnerships and our subsidiary products, our technology reaches 300 million monthly active users worldwide.

eyeo is a global employer of over 300 people working remotely in more than 30 countries (predominantly North America and Europe) with our HQ in Berlin and small offices in Cologne, Toronto and NYC (opening in 2024).

How we work

eyeo has colleagues based all over the world. We love our diversity and take great pride in our company culture. We practice an independent, remote workstyle with work distributed in cross-functional matrix teams that span predominantly EST and CET time zones. If working remotely isn’t for you, we also have a large office in Berlin and soon in NYC that you can choose to work from. Quarterly, we come together as an executive team and once a year, we host an all-company retreat, our Summer Week. By enabling remote work and in-person sessions, we have built a hybrid culture that provides a unique dynamic of flexibility and belonging.
