Lead a team of Software Engineers which form the Workplace Engineering team as a highly performant group that specialises in web architecture and data analytics. Building new tools, dashboards and analytics that empower colleagues, managers and executives to make better decisions and shape the 21st century of a remote, globally distributed and digital workplace.
Canonical is a pioneer in the digital workplace, established in 2004 with a global, remote-first policy that has delivered world-class open source and sets the pace in cloud, developer and IoT technology.
We are dedicated to continually improving to keep Canonical the best at remote work. It's part of our enjoyment of our mission - both to deliver the world's best free software, and to push the boundaries of 21st-century work and collaboration.
Our goal is to improve the state of the art even further in key business processes for a distributed team: hiring, collaboration, communication, learning, documentation, development, and open source development. We want to understand our distributed teams as well as we could understand co-located teams. We want to help them work better, be happier, and make better decisions.
The ideal candidate will use their passion for experimentation and analytics to build tomorrow’s tech organisation. This team will help us gain insights into the business and our talent pool, and use those insights to improve the experience of working at Canonical.
As an Engineering Manager at Canonical, your primary responsibility is to the people you support: ensuring that they are growing as software engineers, doing valuable work, and generally having a great time at Canonical. As a lead for strong engineers, technical leadership and a solid background in web 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 strategy and execution.
We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. Diversity of experience, perspectives, and background create a better work environment and better products. Whatever your identity we will give your application fair consideration.
