Legal at Canonical

Enabling enterprises, partners and technology providers across the globe to embrace the latest open source technology requires efficient contracting that is both commercially sophisticated and technically interesting. We shape multinational agreements between many of the largest organisations in a wide range of industries - from telecommunications to retail, financial services and media.

We also participate in the global effort to define and understand the future of collaborative engineering that open source licences can unlock.

Projects you'll work on

In everything we work on, we aim to deliver contractual frameworks that are simple, clean and understandable. We ensure that our contracts represent current best practice and the latest approaches to software production, consumption and distribution. We believe that rigour should be combined with business enablement, which means we support complex deals in a way that protects all parties and minimises friction.

Who you are

Experience at Canonical offers rapid growth in understanding the global legal landscape, in terms of technology, but also in terms of commercial and corporate contracting. We welcome candidates with an outstanding track record, a commitment to teamwork, and a personal interest in the future of software and the legal frameworks that underpin it.
