This is a highly unusual opportunity to work on a new open-source developer experience tool. We are rethinking typical developer workflows, trying to preserve what people love about traditional Linux while enabling people to work better in immutable distro environments, as well as with remote cloud resources. You'll join to work on a product that is deeply and securely integrated with Ubuntu desktop, modern IDEs, and SDKs from publishers like NVIDIA, Intel, AMD and others. Our ultimate goal is to free developers from the hours of tedious environment setup across multiple industry domains such as Robotics, MLOps, Io T. Come help us to make Ubuntu the greatest platform for software engineers!

The role implies a deep interest in crafting tools for software engineers. It requires taste in experience design, and will benefit from experience with professional Linux based software development, Linux system-level fundamentals and containers. As a team, we value intellectual honesty in decision-making, peer reviews, and writing clear and maintainable code. While we are building a full team including senior, junior and entry-level roles, the senior roles require a strong understanding of containers and the kernel semantics and capabilities that underpin them.


This team is based in the APAC region, these remote roles can be filled from anywhere in APAC time zones.

Write high-quality code to create new features

What we offer you
Your base pay will depend on various factors including your geographical location, level of experience, knowledge and skills. In addition to the benefits above, certain roles are also eligible for additional benefits and rewards including annual bonuses and sales incentives based on revenue or utilisation. Our compensation philosophy is to ensure equity right across our global workforce.
