We are on a mission to transform the world of software operations, using Python for next-generation infrastructure-as-code and inventing model-driven operations to enable companies to run very efficient operations both on-premise and on cloud.
In support of that we are looking for a global leader of about 20 devops professionals across three regional teams, focused on software development in the context of production services with mission critical applications and high profile, high-volume users, to improve the efficiency, reliability and speed of open source IT operations.
This team is part of our fully managed operations organisation. They run many private clouds and Kubernetes clusters for customers around the world. This real-world experience of low-level operations with our products enables us to improve our infra-as-code and private cloud offerings based on our own real experience, mirroring that of our users and customers. We work in Python, creating open source operations capabilities that simplify these operations for anybody, worldwide, who is building on Ubuntu.
This team is a true devops team - responsible for real-time global monitoring and network operations of production services. Most of the work involved is pure Python software development, where we expect a focus on quality, design, documentation, tests and performance. The team will be responsible for remote monitoring of infrastructure and applications, using open source products, and improvements to that monitoring capability. The team will also enhance operations code packages, and Ubuntu itself, to ensure our platform is the easiest, most robust, and best performing way to drive your data centre and cloud IT.
As the Director of Devops Engineering, your primary responsibility is to the people you lead and support: ensuring that they are growing as engineers, doing valuable work, and finding satisfaction in their career at Canonical. As a lead for software engineers, technical leadership and a solid background in software development is a must, so that you’re able to challenge and grow your team members. You will have the opportunity to influence the culture, facilitate technical delivery, and work with your team on direction and execution.
Canonical is a growing, international software company that works with the open-source community to deliver Ubuntu -- the world’s #1 cloud operating system. Our mission is to realize the potential of free software in the lives of individuals and organisations. Our services help businesses worldwide to reduce costs, improve efficiency and enhance security with Ubuntu.
We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. Diversity of experience, perspectives, and background leads 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.
