The best candidates for marketing at Canonical love technology and word. They are tech-savvy and are comfortable working with spreadsheets and CRMs. They are passionate about message and language, and strive to find the best way to share a powerful idea that leads people to act.
Canonical has a global following of sophisticated tech readers and decision makers, constantly evaluating the state of the art for open infrastructure and applications. Your mission is to reach them at precisely the right moment with clear information showing that Ubuntu and Canonical’s solutions deliver the very best in quality and economics. It’s a fast-paced, high stakes responsibility that demands a high level of intellect and work ethic.
In marketing you are a representative of Canonical and you are an advocate of our brands and products. We all work together across the full portfolio - you are expected to understand the big picture of how Canonical’s products fit together, there are no siloes. These are not behind-the-scenes roles, they are public leadership roles. We expect our team to be just as comfortable delivering our message online as they are face to face at meetups, meetings, conferences, partner workshops, or press events. From the analyst community to the tech press, from the CIO to the graduate engineer, from prospects to existing customers, we think Ubuntu should be the starting point for technology transformation around open source, and our marketing team are the amplifier for our message.
