The Developer Relations team at Canonical engage with community and enterprise software developers to help them embrace the Canonical approach to open source. We enable community developers and ISVs to deliver their applications to millions of Linux users and devices as snaps, charms, debs and Docker images. We also bring their feedback to engineering teams at Canonical for continuous improvement.
As a Developer Relations Manager, you will lead a team of developer relations engineers who engage with developer communities and ISVs to help them reach the Ubuntu ecosystem. Typically we help them shape their snaps, charms, or Ubuntu-based Docker images, and ensure that Ubuntu is fully enabled in their CI/CD pipelines.
This is a role that requires strong technical grounding in software engineering, Linux and open source communities, container technologies and devops. It is also a management role that requires judgement, empathy and drive. You and your team will represent not only the Ubuntu community but also Canonical as a contributor to the wider Linux ecosystem. You will lead a distributed team and travel internationally 2-4 times per year for engineering sprints, community summits, industry events, and strategic planning sessions.
