Careers at the RIPE NCC

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 Internet. We provide the IP addresses that we all use to connect to the Internet. We also support the Internet community at large via technical coordination and representation in Internet governance. That's the short version - you can dive deeper into everything we do here. 

We are an international organisation serving the diverse Internet community, which is reflected by our staff. We have highly skilled employees with different backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and identities. We are an equal-opportunity employer and we often find that our differences are our greatest strengths.

What We Do

The RIPE NCC is a not-for-profit organisation founded on the belief that the Internet should be governed openly, transparently and together with the wider Internet community. We are one of the oldest Internet organisations in Europe and are proud of our legacy. 

Our strongest asset is our staff. We bring together more than 185 people from more than 40 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.

How We Work

We employ the brightest talent and believe in our staff to work towards our vision of "Together, let’s shape the future of the Internet".

We believe in an open, bottom-up and transparent Internet governance model and want to reflect that internally too. That’s why we believe in a structure where self-organisation is encouraged, with distributing domains and accountabilities in the roles where it belongs. We combine both a more conventional leadership structure with a set of purpose-driven teams to support our organisational goals. Our employees hold a number of roles, each with its own defined accountabilities and purpose, in addition to a generic job description.

The strength of purpose-driven teams empowers our teams to make decisions to achieve their desired objectives, rather than pushing decisions upwards. We also encourage cross-organisational collaboration and motivate and inspire our colleagues to use their skills and knowledge beyond the typical departmental boundaries.

Work With Us

Although our backgrounds are diverse, we all have a shared commitment to work for the good of the Internet. Do you want to join us in our mission?
