IP Resource Analyst

Are you good at talking IP and Internet governance? There’s a great opportunity waiting for you at the core of the Internet.

You could be our next IP Resource Analyst (IPRA) – join the RIPE NCC and help us make the Internet a better place.

You’ll be a part of a dynamic, multicultural team that interacts with members across the RIPE NCC service region and implements policies created by the RIPE community.

You’ll do great work by:

  • Managing projects aimed at implementing and supporting RIPE Policy

  • Passion for providing the highest level of customer service
  • Strong administrative skills
  • Experience with managing projects
  • A fluent level of written and spoken English
  • A love of working in a diverse international group
