As a Developer Relations Manager, you will lead a team of developer relations engineers who engage with developer communities and ISVs to help them reach the Ubuntu ecosystem. Typically we help them shape their snaps, charms, or Ubuntu-based Docker images, and ensure that Ubuntu is fully enabled in their CI/CD pipelines. This is a role that requires strong technical grounding in software engineering, Linux and open source communities, container technologies and devops. It is also a management role that requires judgement, empathy and drive. You and your team will represent not only the Ubuntu community but also Canonical as a contributor to the wider Linux ecosystem. You will lead a distributed team and travel internationally 2-4 times per year for engineering sprints, community summits, industry events, and strategic planning sessions.
