Jorge Castro had been at Canonical since 2007, while he had contributed to Ubuntu all the way back to 2004. At Canonical he started out in developer relations and for the past number of years was a cloud liaison and most recently was serving within the Kubernetes team.
Jorge is continuing his passion for Kubernetes by joining Heptio, a Seattle startup focused around advancing Kubernetes. His departure comes a few months after a few other longtime Ubuntu developers departing to focus on new endeavors after spending a decade plus working on Ubuntu.
Jorge shared some parting messages on his blog. Good luck to Castrojo with his future endeavors!
