And you will work closely with many other teams as well as outsider partners to ensure .NET in Ubuntu containers, servers, clouds is the best .NET there is.

    We believe that developers working with .NET all around the world should have a Linux operating system that makes their job easy and pleasant. Come join us and let's make this happen!
