    Golang Engineering Manager (IAM)


    • Canonical is seeking experienced Python/Go engineering managers to build highly performant and secure identity and access management solutions that will be used across all company products.
    • From Ubuntu One SSO to Juju, LXD and MAAS your team will define the way Canonical users, clients and community members access their favorite open source applications.
    • This is an opportunity for a software engineering manager with a passion for distributed systems operations to help us transform the future of identity management at Canonical.
    • Experience in the identity and access management (IAM) field is desirable but not required. You will work with upstream open source projects, alongside internal teams to deliver high quality software that can be deployed on bare metal, public cloud and Kubernetes.

    • In addition to the engineering behind the project itself, you'll have the chance to work with industry-leading teams inside Canonical, ensuring your work is backed by rock-solid data stores, and highly observable using our Kubernetes-based Observability stack. You'll work with broader open source communities, participating in "hackfest" events, webinars and conferences.
