HW Certification jobs at Canonical

The HW Certification team at Canonical is hiring three localized engineers: one in our offices in Lexington (MA), USA; one in Taipei, Taiwan; and one in Montréal, Canada.

The HW Certification team, part of Platform Services, provides certification as a service to partners. Basically, if a computer vendor wants to get one of their machines certified to work nicely with Ubuntu, they can buy this service.

The variety of work involved in our side is big and fun: from receiving the machines to be certified (some of them even brand new machines not yet public!), to commercial relationships, passing from a lot (a lot!) of technical work: writing testcases, maintaining our testing infrastructure, etc.

For me, working at Canonical, has been (and it is) the best professional experience I have had so far. It is great to be able to work in such a great environment, with very smart people and making Ubuntu better for everybody. I truly recommend Canonical as workplace. Please, ping me me on IRC if you would like to know more about how it is to work here.

So, if you live in any of these three locations or are willing to relocate (Canonical does not offer a relocation package), please, have a look to the following job descriptions and send your resume to victorp AT canonical DOT com.


  1. You should probably clarify that it’s Lexington, MA. There’s at least 10 states that I know of that have a Lexington. :)

  2. We have a strong technology community in Vancouver BC. Nothing against Montreal, but we’d love to help too :)

    • A job at Canonical is the perfect excuse to learn French. Now I just need to find the energy to move… again.

  3. I’ve often wondered what working at Canonical would be like, both for people on-site and those working from home. I think working at Canonical would be really exciting and fun, but I’ve heard some people get burned out (working from home). Can you tell us more about what it’s like to work at Canonical? More than it being awesome, how does it compare to past experiences, pros/cons, etc?


    • As I wrote in the post, if you want to know more, please ping me privately.
