Canonical is building a new generation of Ubuntu-based Docker images to simplify open source application deployment across the world. These container images will be free to use with long term security commitments, and engineered for performance, security and usability. As with Ubuntu, we will work in the open and welcome community participation.
This role is to join the team responsible for this initiative, to design and build images, tools, technology, and community processes. This is an opportunity for an exceptional engineer who is passionate about open source quality, community, containers, devops and cloud. As a part of this team you will combine software development skills with community design and interaction, creating the tools and pipelines needed to support the work. You will work closely with multiple teams as well as world-class cloud partners.
You need to have experience building and using Docker images on Ubuntu. You should be familiar with the state of the art in container design, including minimal images. Knowledge of distroless and buildpacks will be valuable. You should also be familiar with Kubernetes and CI/CD pipelines for container ops. You should be a professional software engineer and familiar with Python or Golang.
Applicants should be passionate about the future of container technology, distributed systems, and open source. Canonical is a globally distributed team of engineers who share that passion. Engineers who thrive at Canonical are mindful of open source community dynamics, and equally aware of the needs of large enterprise customers.
