Get to know us

We create open source software that puts users in control over their online browsing experience.

Our desktop and mobile products, such as Adblock Plus, Adblock Browser and Flattr, help sustain and grow a fair, open web, because they give users control while providing user-friendly monetization. Our most popular product, Adblock Plus (ABP), is currently used on over 100 million devices.

  • Develop libadblockplus using your C++ and JavaScript skills
  • Keep up with changes related to our adblockpluscore library
  • Solve problems such as optimizing memory usage for our mobile partners
  • Ensure the stability of our libadblockplus library across all platforms and partners
  • Ensure that partner requests are answered and implemented, and that partners are satisfied
  • Keep up with changes related to V8 and Chromium versions and translate these into the required changes for our libraries

Take a scoop of ice cream if you have...

A little bit about the team you’ll work with

The Distribution Partners team works on growing eyeo’s number of users by finding and collaborating with partners that help us build scale.

Some of our partners include Samsung Internet, ZTE, Zoomob and Maxthon (we usually integrate with the browser or operating system teams).

Our team currently has 4 developers in addition to a number of designers, data analysts and business development people.

For this role, we prefer that you are based in or near Cologne, but will consider remote work for the right candidate.

Not sure if this is for you? Consider contributing first.

When applying, please include a code sample or, preferably, references to open source projects you worked on.
