We care about developer access to the very best of open source, and make it easy to innovate and publish on the cloud, on the desktop, and on smart connected devices for the internet of things. We work across the full range of open source - from the kernel, to applications, from deep system services to the GUI and the web. We care about security, correctness, reliability, performance and efficiency. If you share those values and you have a track record of exceptional software development, this is the place for you.

Engineering at Canonical ranges from deep single-product specialization, to diverse customer-centric field integration, delivery and development, and high-pressure rapid-response to critical situations in our techops team. The right career for you will depend on your interests and aptitudes. If you love the idea of travel and seeing the world, our field engineers work on-site with the world’s best companies to transform their open infrastructure.
