    Exceptional Software Lead :

    What will it take to be a technical lead at Canonical?

  • To be successful in this application you will need to show proven exceptional results in maths and sciences.
  • You must also have proven yourself to be an outstanding software engineer at some layer of the open-source stack.
  • This particular Fast Track is for engineers who do not want management responsibility but are strong technical leads - we have separate tracks for folks who want management roles.
  • You will need to show that you have a gift for software design and implementation, and enjoy contributing to a highly professional environment with careful choices of technology, architecture, data design, and user interface.
  • You should have a broad-based knowledge of Linux, networking, software development, databases, API design and possibly web presentation layers.
  • As a leader, you must demonstrate insight into performance and quality engineering practices in your field, and show how you have helped teams embrace effective disciplines on both fronts.
  • You also need an understanding of security practices and principles and the impact that engineering choices have on product security.
  • We care about how usable our products are, and that starts with documentation. You must have experience producing well-documented products and working with design professionals to shape the product.
  • You should have clearly articulated views on the ways engineering practices influence product outcomes, not just technically but in open source communities and in the marketplace.
  • It is an advantage to be able to point to open source work of your own which demonstrates these strengths.
  • This is a role for leadership, architecture, design and mentorship.
  • It may require periods of coding to establish key frameworks, APIs or interfaces.
  • You should relish the opportunity to write code while being most interested in helping an engineering team produce a great product that will be a pleasure to use and to evolve.
