Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Web Developer - Workplace Engineering

Canonical is a pioneer in the digital workplace, established in 2004 with a global, remote-first policy that has delivered world class open source and sets the pace in cloud, developer and IoT technology.

We want Canonical to remain the best at remote work. It's part of our enjoyment of our mission - both to deliver the world's best free software, and to push the boundaries of 21st-century work and collaboration. It seems that everyone had a taste of remote work in the past few years, but at Canonical we think it can continue to evolve and improve. We want to take our remote-first workplace to the next level, and are investing in the next wave of tooling to support and streamline our operation.

Our goal is to improve the state of the art even further in key business processes for a distributed team: hiring, collaboration, communication, learning, documentation, development, and open source development. We want to understand our distributed teams as well as we could understand co-located teams. We want to help them work better, be happier, and make better decisions.

 

The ideal candidate will use their passion for experimentation and analytics to build tomorrow’s tech organisation. This team will help us gain insights into the business and our talent pool, and use those insights to improve the experience of working at Canonical. In some cases, we might productise these capabilities as SAAS for other tech companies.

What you’ll do

  • Design and deliver web based systems and SAAS
  • Provide new insights into the Canonical workplace experience
  • Enable new processes and improve existing workflows
  • Collaborate proactively with a distributed team
  • Write high-quality code to create new features
  • Debug issues and produce high-quality code to fix them
  • Consistently provide high-quality code reviews to other engineers
  • Discuss ideas and collaborate on finding good solutions

  • Understand completion criteria and push work to completion
  • Work to reduce complexity
  • Advocate and advance modern, agile software development practices
  • Connect to many data sources and provide insightful visualisations
  • Providing tooling to support optimised processes
