Hey Gabriel,

Do you have some plans to open source the search engine of DuckDuckGo one day and let people contribute?

Yes! Check out http://duckduckhack.com/ -- it is our open source instant answer platform, which is becoming more and more of DuckDuckGo. The whole platform is open source itself (in addition to the answers).

Thank you for the reply, but I already knew about duckduckhack - I made a small contribution to it in 2013. What I meant however is the core search engine, that is currently closed source.

Thank you for the contribution! Would love to get you back :).

We've been actually open sourcing more and more because what I meant is that as DuckDuckHack grows it is becoming more and more of the search engine. Check out https://github.com/duckduckgo -- bunch of new repos since 2013.
