Canonical's Snap Store team is looking for talented backend developers to join a distributed engineering team focused on delivering the best Snap Store experience for developers and device manufacturers.
Snaps are secure, sandboxed, containerized applications that are powering a growing number of IoT devices and the format of choice for thousands of up-to-date apps for Linux desktops, servers, and cloud instances. For users, the Snap Store facilitates discovery, installation, and automatic reliable updates of applications. For developers and device manufacturers our platform provides a smooth publishing pipeline, metrics on distribution, and facilities to manage dedicated stores for IoT devices.
We have a lot of interesting work ahead of us in expanding the Store's feature set and scaling to meet demand as millions of additional devices are deployed. Our services are a mix of Python (Flask, Django) and Golang. if you have a passion for clean APIs, have a bias towards shipping and believe that tests are the key to higher velocity and reliability, you'll fit right in.
- Develop services, features, and enhancements according to our roadmap, primarily in Python and Golang
- Be responsible for the end-to-end success of your efforts
- Work with the team on system design, implementation and code reviews
- Collaborate with other teams in Canonical to deliver the full scope of a feature beyond the backend APIs
