Jutta Horstmann is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of eyeo, the company behind the single most popular browser extension ever developed: Adblock Plus. As a computer science graduate with 20 years of experience in the IT sector, she founded her own software development company and grew it over a decade. She then moved into IT consultancy and organizational transformation, bringing this experience to eyeo since 2017. She defines her role as eyeo’s COO as “enabling the organization for success”.
Jutta has been working mostly remote for nearly 20 years now, leading and building high-performance distributed and dispersed teams. At eyeo, she drives strategic initiatives to improve remote collaboration, hiring and onboarding, and remote events. This year, eyeo ran their first fully-remote Open Space, Company Week, and Hackathon. Their Ad Blocker Developer Summit, a yearly international conference, is going to be organized this year as a remote event as well.
