We are building a new team to focus on the .NET ecosystem on Ubuntu. They will deliver the best possible .NET runtimes and supporting tooling in Ubuntu, and enable Ubuntu users access to the wider .NET ecosystem. Our goal is to enable mission-critical .NET applications to be deployed and operated safely, securely and efficiently on large-scale Ubuntu estates. We are also keen to ensure that the cutting edge of Jav.NET innovation is available to Ubuntu users, to lay the foundation for future inventions and open source communities.

This is an exciting opportunity for a software engineer passionate about open source software, Linux systems and software architectures and Microsoft .NET technology. Come build a rewarding, meaningful career working with the best and brightest people in technology at Canonical, a growing international software company and make Ubuntu the best operating system to develop and run your .NET applications in the cloud, in datacenters, in containers, directly on the operating system, and anywhere .NET and Ubuntu can run.

The .NET ecosystem has for a long time had a place in the Linux world thanks to projects like Mono. With the advent of .NET Core, and now .NET 5 and 6, the .NET ecosystem as a whole has embraced Linux, with an emphasis on fast, scalable and reliable containerised applications.  We intend for Ubuntu to excel as an operating system for developing and running .NET applications on Linux in a secure, reliable, performant and future-proof fashion. We build on the technical excellence of Debian and bring additional focus and shape to the solutions we offer. Applicants will be passionate about the future of .NET, of Ubuntu, mindful of the dynamics of the open-source ecosystem, and equally aware of the needs of large but innovative organisations.

As part of the Ubuntu Foundations team, you will work on the architecture, design and development of core components of the Ubuntu Distribution related to the .NET Framework for Linux, and associated development and operations tooling. You will be discussing designs with other team members and product managers, mentoring other engineers and participating in technical reviews. You will also work with other teams to ensure architectural decisions and improve the overall performance and experience of Ubuntu. As a member of the Ubuntu Foundations team, your work will have an impact on every aspect of the Ubuntu ecosystem from Desktop, Server, Ubuntu Core and cloud images. And you will work closely with many other teams as well as outsider partners to ensure .NET in Ubuntu containers, servers, clouds is the best .NET there is.

We believe that developers working with .NET all around the world should have a Linux operating system that makes their job easy and pleasant. Come join us and let’s make this happen!
