Open source community collaboration
You have proven outstanding at maths and sciences, have built high quality software, learned about open source ideally by working on it directly, and are now looking for an engineering management role with a company that makes critical products for the global market.
You also believe you have excellent judgement about people - their motivations, abilities, developmental needs and prospects for success.
Your technology interests may include cloud computing, IoT, or Linux itself. You have a gift for software design and implementation, and enjoy contributing to a highly professional environment with careful choices of technology, architecture, data design, and user interface.
You have broad-based knowledge of Linux, networking, software development, databases, API design and possibly web presentation layers.
You are familiar with the open source environment, and want to build products in partnership with a community.
You can demonstrate insight into performance and quality engineering practices and you are willing to help teams embrace effective disciplines on both fronts, and to hold them accountable for results.
You also have an understanding of security practices and principles and the impact that engineering choices have on product security.
You have experience producing well-documented products and working with design professionals to shape the product. You have clearly articulated views on the ways engineering practices influence product outcomes, not just technically but in open source communities and in the marketplace.
You have deep experience with either or both Python and Golang. You may also have front-end web engineering experience, or deep Linux kernel or operating system experience.
It is an advantage to be able to point to open source work of your own which demonstrates these strengths.
This is a role for leadership, management, organization, architecture, design and mentorship, not individual contribution through coding.
You should relish the opportunity to shape and direct and develop an engineering team that is happy and brilliant, and produces a product that will be a pleasure to use and to evolve.
In applying for this role you will need to demonstrate both exceptional technical skill, broad based knowledge of the modern open source software arena, proven mathematics or engineering ability, and the ability to articulate ideas and motivate others to embrace your thinking.
