Adblock, Inc. is a small team that serves tens of millions of people worldwide. Our vision is to provide our users with simple, intuitive tools to block distractions, protect their privacy, and put people in control of their internet experience 
Our products—AdBlock, Adblock Plus, and AdBlock VPN—have been downloaded hundreds of million times and work in all major web browsers, as well as on macOS, iOS, Windows, and Android devices.

Experience with Zendesk, Asana, Slack, and/or Notion
Experience providing technical support for browser extensions, apps, or VPNs
An interest in ad blocking and internet privacy

Provide a voice for the user within the Adblock organization, alerting us to issues users are facing and features users are asking for
Identify technical issues and collaborate with our quality assurance and engineering teams to ensure they get reported, and that users are being communicated with along the way
Answer questions about Adblock’s multiple products and provide user guidance around best practices in ad blocking and online privacy
