Lead the team responsible for MicroK8s and Charmed Kubernetes.
Canonical offers two distributions of upstream Kubernetes, and enables multiple partners to build their own specialised distributions too. For small clusters, IoT, and developers, we offer Microk8s, a very popular low-ops, self-healing, highly available Kubernetes. Our goal with MicroK8s is to have Kubernetes disappear into the background, with a one-command install and one-command cluster deployment approach that uses best-of-breed defaults, and maintains itself automatically. For large-scale deployments with complex integration requirements we offer Charmed Kubernetes, which enables people to mix-and-match components from a wide range of open source and proprietary vendors across the industry, with specific architectures on metal and clouds.
As the engineering manager of the Kubernetes team you’ll engage the Kubernetes community, represent Canonical and Ubuntu at KubeCon, and use your engineering leadership abilities to guide teams using Python and Go to deliver exciting new features to thousands of enthusiastic users. Join our globally distributed team and help build the next generation of container technology for devs, cloud, clusters, workstations, Edge and IoT.
This is an exciting opportunity for a leader passionate about strong teams, open source software, Linux and Kubernetes. Build a rewarding, meaningful career working with the best and brightest people in technology at Canonical, a growing international software company.
