Company culture

We believe that talent is evenly distributed around the world. Diversity is part of our strength. What unifies us isn’t our background, it’s our mission to amplify open source.

We're Canonical




The future is already here, as open source. Canonical delivers it to the world. We play a critical role in broadening the benefits of open source to more people and more industries than ever before. This means bringing new work opportunities to people regardless of their location too.

Fully distributed
since 2004

We're a remote-first international company.
I get to work every day with people from all over the world, which is just amazing.

Ken VanDine
Engineering Manager, Ubuntu Desktop

Built on trust

As a remote-first organisation, trust is our currency. At Canonical, you get unprecedented flexibility in how you organise your day and freedom to explore new roles within the company. We trust each other to be organised and effective in a distributed workplace. If you value teamwork and are committed to being a good counterpart to colleagues around the world, you will love working here.

I love the trust and the freedom that exists in our organisation.
Trust and freedom to explore new things.

to excellence

We aspire to lead on the global stage. Most of us are avid students of greatness ‐ we are interested in how the latest technologies work, how the best organisations work and how the smartest teams collaborate. We aim to hold our own in that crowd. We pursue engineering excellence and love to engineer excellence in all aspects of our work. From releasing the world’s most popular Linux reliably to developing our documentation practise.

This is a company where intelligence and learning are highly valued.
