DuckDuckGo is headquartered in Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA, though most of our diverse team (of about 40) works remotely around the world (including Canada, Ireland, Switzerland, Slovakia, Italy, the UK, Japan, France, and the Netherlands as well as PA, NY, NJ, CA, IL, CO and MA in the US).

We have a unique hiring process that includes contracting with us first to see if there is a good fit, and we're happy to work through it flexibly around your current schedule. You can find out details about our hiring process here.

We look for DuckDuckGo users who are passionate about what we're trying to accomplish and who share our core values. Our vision is to raise the standard of trust online and our mission is to be the world's most trusted search engine. Our core values include building trust (both with our users and with each other internally), questioning assumptions (for example, the assumption you need to track people), and validating direction (a statement about how we operate projects internally). Joining our small team is a unique opportunity to work with others and make a significant impact on a major consumer product that shares your values, and have fun in the process (we like our memes)!

If you'd like to be considered for hire, please introduce yourself!
