Canonical is seeking experienced Python developers to build the world's best open source portfolio of integrated, secure and reliable software to the telecommunications industry. Work with upstream open source projects, alongside internal teams to deliver high quality software that can be deployed on bare metal, public cloud and Kubernetes.
Experience in the telco field is desirable but not required. Bring your experience with Python, Linux and Kubernetes to help us transform the future of network orchestration and automation.
Help the growing engineering team at Canonical bring the cutting edge of open source software into the telecommunications sector. As an engineer on the team, you'll bring significant software development experience, public cloud and Kubernetes experience and a keen eye for software design and architecture.
You will be involved in all the aspects of the software development process: you will design software, write high-quality code and tests, provide insightful code reviews, write documentation and help to troubleshoot issues.
In addition to the engineering behind the project itself, you'll have the chance to work with industry-leading teams inside Canonical, ensuring your work is backed by rock-solid data stores, and highly observable using our Kubernetes-based Observability stack. You'll work with broader open source communities, participating in "hackfest" events, webinars and conferences.
What you’ll do
- Collaborate proactively with a globally distributed team
- Write high quality Python code following best practices to create new features
- Debug issues and produce high quality code to fix them
- Review code produced by other engineers
- Discuss ideas and collaborate on finding good solutions
- Participate in community events such as "hackfests" and "webinars"
- Work from home with global travel 6 to 8 weeks for internal and external events
Canonical is proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better platform for our users and customers. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of the world of Ubuntu.
