An exceptional opportunity for an exceptional and competitive technology leader with extensive interests in open source networking.

If you have a passion for network technology and business, deep familiarity with Linux networking, an interest in next generation data center networking and awareness of open source community leadership and best practices, then you will love the networking leadership role at Canonical.

The open source network stack is redefining what’s possible in the industry. From eBPF in the kernel to FRR, from open source NOS competition to smart NICS, from P4 to OVS, it’s clear that the networking sector is going open source. Ubuntu is very widely deployed in next-generation environments. We see an opportunity to help customers embrace the newest capabilities in open source networking in partnership with major industry players from silicon to services.

This role requires an analytical storyteller with a strong sense of message. We prefer graduate professionals with software engineering management experience who want to become business executives and entrepreneurs, to define product strategy and drive engagement.

Product leadership at Canonical is data-driven and content-centric. Product performance is closely measured and this team participates in regular reviews with company leadership.

You will join a growing team and help shape the message across our suite of products, with a particular focus on network technologies and the network equipment sector. You will create effective content to engage sophisticated technical and commercial audiences, and work closely with marketing, media, engineering, sales, research, consulting, and training teams.

You will be accountable for product go-to-market execution, marketing collateral, case studies, training, and blog posts. You will be expected to deliver measurable lead-gen and awareness.

The successful candidate will be multi-talented, with:

  • A rigorous technical or science background and supporting qualifications
  • Software engineering management experience
  • Business and commercial interests
  • A proven history of leadership and presentation skills
  • A strong work ethic, and personal interests aligned with the field
  • Awareness of Ubuntu and Canonical’s competition and tactical opportunities
  • Track record of data-driven decision-making
  • Proven ability to write about technology and the tech landscape
