Join us at Freenom

Freenom is a disruptive internet company that has pioneered the "free domain model" and is leading the change in the old-fashioned domain name industry.

After several years of growth, our first Top Level Domain Dot TK (a partnership with the country of Tokelau, a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean), has reached a historical milestone and in March 2014 became the largest country code in the world with over 30 million active domains. Our story was featured on CNN, BCC, “De Wereld Draait Door", The Guardian, and many more.

As we seriously scale up the business, we are looking for new talent to join the team in our office, in the heart of Amsterdam. We are hiring now:

Senior Software Developers - (36-40 hours/week)

You will be part of a technical team with engineers in all kinds of Internet related technology. The team is still relatively small meaning your skills could be useful to any layer of the Freenom product. Freenom works in an agile environment and is driven by continuous development.

You are a self-motivated, communicative technologist that thinks all the things should be automated. You like to apply new technology, but are not afraid of old concept proven software. You use the tool you need to get the task done.

Freenom has a substantial codebase that changes continuously. Our code base consists of Perl, Python and PHP. We are moving our services to cloud based environments like GAE, Beanstalk or Heroku to limit the system management hassle.

At Freenom you will:

  • Improve the user experience by making web services smarter and faster
  • Improve our API, which is written in Perl/Python
