Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu, is seeking an experienced engineering manager to lead the Kernel Resilience team. Kernel Resilience is an evolution to the next level of the already industry-leading focus on quality and security of the Ubuntu Linux kernel. The primary focus areas of the team will include but aren’t limited to:

Stability and reliability

Not just running tests and reporting results but vigorously seeking ways to cause kernel crashes or other faults

Security and hardening

Actively attempting to identify vulnerabilities and exposures as well as responding to reported CVEs

Performance profiling

Kernel build automation

This role is not to oversee a team of button pushers forwarding automated results. Kernel Resilience staff are expected to be dedicated engineers using their experience to discover new issues using the best practices, or coming up with innovative new practices when ‘best’ just isn’t good enough. Therefore the Kernel Resilience Manager must be an individual willing to leverage their passion to not only challenge the status quo but motivate the team to continually strive for improvement.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of some mixture of Linux kernel development, kernel security, quality assurance, and back-end development. If you tick at least one of those boxes and have a strong interest in the others, we want to hear from you!

What you'll do

Lead a globally distributed team of engineers through coaching, mentoring, feedback and hands-on career development

Develop your team through coaching, mentoring, leading by example, and feedback

Ensure an ongoing commitment to industry-leading quality, reliability and security standards

Strive for continuous improvement in Linux kernel build automation

Engage with other teams at Canonical, the open source community and commercial partners

Work from home with global travel up to twice a year for up to two weeks

Who you are

Someone with high standards for overall quality, and not afraid to ensure they are met

At ease leading or working in several different technical domains concurrently

Significant programming experience in C, Python, Golang, or other like languages

Substantial experience in Linux system configuration, programming, and deployment

Solid understanding Linux kernel internals and development principles

Demonstrated experience managing or leading a team of software engineers

Demonstrated ability to present oneself in a professional manner when interacting with colleagues, customers, business partners, and the open source community

Understanding of agile software development methodologies

Earned a bachelor’s (or equivalent university level) degree, preferably in a technology field

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. Diversity of experience, perspectives, and background create a better work environment and better products. Whatever your identity we will give your application fair consideration.

    Technology ("science of craft", from Greek τέχνη, techne, "art, skill, cunning of hand"; and -λογία, -logia) is the collection of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings. The simplest form of technology is the development and use of basic tools. The prehistoric discovery of how to control fire and the later Neolithic Revolution increased the available sources of food, and the invention of the wheel helped humans to travel in and control their environment. Developments in historic times, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. The steady progress of military technology has brought weapons of ever-increasing destructive power, from clubs to nuclear weapons.
