Careers at the RIPE NCC

What We Do

Think about how heavily you rely on the Internet. Communication, commerce, administration, entertainment - the Internet plays a key role in all of this and more.

We operate in the engine room of the World Wide Web. We provide the IP addresses that we all use to connect to the Internet. We also support the Internet community at large via technical co-ordination and representation in Internet governance. That's the short version - you can dive deeper into everything we do here. 

Our strongest asset is our staff. We bring together more than 150 people from more than 38 countries in our modern, vibrant office in the east wing of Amsterdam Central Station. Our official working language is English, but more than 30 languages are spoken by our colleagues.
