Generally speaking, only very-highly-talented individuals work here. Most of them are also very passionate about open source. Very flexible work arrangements, cool people, responsive managers, directors who care.
A side-effect of having such a talented workforce, is that there tends to be relatively high churn. But I've found the most passionate ones stick around because it really is a blast!
Advice to Management
For US-based employees, the benefits are a quite light when compared with other US employers. Health care coverage costs seems to be right on point, but paid time off and 401k are not nearly in line with the norm.
It's a good thing the job is so fun, flexible and rewarding! Every time a recruiter hits me with an sweeter offer financially, I immediately go back to that.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Canonical in February 2015.
After applying through their website I've received an email from the HR asking about my availability for a video-conferencing interview. The interview was very relaxed and the interviewers very friendly. After about two weeks I was told they had found someone else better suited for the job.
