Well it hasn’t been that long since the last set of hirings (those posts are still open on Ubuntu Jobs at least).Canonical is now adding even more talent. This latest round calls for three more developers with kernel experience to work on hardware support.
The objective of this role is to ensure high-quality support at a kernel/near kernel level for Ubuntu on hardware from Canonical’s various hardware partners. Work will focus on hardware bringup, device driver integration/maintenance, bug fixing, patch maintenance, and upstream development in support of Ubuntu.
This is addition to a Foundations team manager opening on Monday. Moreover, Canonical is also hiring someone for Ubuntu One marketing, a few more web developers and a few server developers.
According to a recent email exchange departing COO Matt Assay stated that Canonical has 400 employees right now. In addition to this there are about 50 open positions on Ubuntu Jobs.
