Benefits

  • Remote working

    Canonical has been a fully distributed organisation since its origin in 2004. Digital collaboration allows us to enjoy our home environment and work with the best in the world in our domain. We meet each other at least twice per year during in-person sprints to nurture cross-team relationships.

  • We build trust

    Zero commute means more time for the things you enjoy. At the same time, we have very high expectations of commitment and independent execution. We invest in people who are self-driven, motivated and highly organised. We take our responsibility for the most critical elements of open infrastructure very seriously, and we are committed to quality in every aspect of our product and services.

  • We engineer excellence

    We aspire to lead on the global stage. There’s no other way to describe it than hard work, hard challenges and hard competition. You will need to show that you can compete in deeply challenging intellectual fields. Your colleagues are aiming for the top, and they depend on you to set the same standard in your area of responsibility. That’s tough but incredibly satisfying. We value those who take ownership of their area and take opportunities to be exceptional.

  • We travel

    We optimise our team structure for time zone overlap. Collaboration and inspiration takes time to fully develop but leadership at Canonical means building cross-team relationships. We nurture those relationships through regular global summits which bring diverse teams or their leaders together. We host these events around the world to discover great places to explore and appreciate in the process. Team events have taken place in Vancouver, Brugge, New York, Budapest, Orlando, Cape Town, Warsaw, Seoul, Paris, Portland, Lyon, London, Toronto and many more.
