For you, it has always been difficult to separate the role of Product Marketing Manager from Product Manager - as you’re equally talented at both sides of the coin. If you’re happiest right in the middle of user experience, technology, product, and go to market strategy + execution, then this role is a great fit for you.
Product Marketing Management and Product Marketing at Canonical are one and the same. Working here, you’ll find yourself surrounded by customer-centric, solution-focused, data-driven peers. Canonical supports a wide array of technologies ranging from the Ubuntu operating system, to bare metal, to the cloud, to the edge, and everything in between - from finance to physics and telco to tesla. Your colleagues are experts in their space and the opportunities for learning are limited only by your drive to understand.
Canonical is a remote-by-design enterprise, and our teams are very comfortable with remote work.
