Your career at Sedo
Sedo offers you outstanding prospects for a career in the expanding online market. From our offices in Cologne and Boston, our team of experts is working toward the future in a digital and creative environment.
Become part of a global success story
A good product needs a good brand name, and an internet address which is as easy to remember as possible. It was still easy in the pioneer years of the World Wide Web
to find a suitable name, but meanwhile practically all promising names have already been taken. Those looking for a name to concisely describe their product or business face a long search – often without a satisfactory result. The alternative is to purchase a name which has already been registered.
It was precisely for this reason that Sedo GmbH was founded in 2001 – and since that time, has made a significant contribution to establishing the global "secondary domain market". Comparable to the real estate market, domains form the virtual "properties" of the internet. Our vision: To provide private individuals and companies with the domain which they require for their success.
As part of United Internet, one of Europe's leading online companies, we, as an independent service provider, are a world leader in the secondary domain market. We are convinced that domains are one of the internet's most important components. Do you share this opinion? If so, do not hesitate to apply for a job with us today.

With a market share of 60%, Sedo is currently the world's largest marketplace for the trading of virtual "properties" – domain names.
