Do an internship
or work at Nextcloud

Nextcloud occasionally hires contributors as interns. It is best to ask the employees you work with about this, or send an inquiry to our jobs email address. To help equalize opportunities for tech jobs for people in underrepresented groups in tech, we have our Include program. You can submit a request for mentoring there, which can turn into an internship as well. Learn more about Include here.

Also, we are hiring. We look especially for people who want to turn their passion into their job! When possible, we hire people from our active community base or from the wider open source community.

Help promote Nextcloud

Just telling other people about Nextcloud is already immensely helpful! Use social media, real life, or write a review at the many websites that review software. Some links below! You can also represent us at events, giving a talk for example. Learn more about Nextcloud events here.
