For those experienced with Linux kernel development and looking for new employment, Red Hat is soliciting offers for a job working on maintaining Fedora's kernel.

Red Hat has a new job opening out for a "Fedora Kernel Engineer" position. This new opening is likely due to longtime Fedora/RedHat kernel developer Dave Jones having left the company in December.

The engineer will join Red Hat's Fedora Engineering team to work on both the upstream kernel as well as Fedora's kernel package. Maintaining the Fedora kernel now in Dave's absence continues to be Josh Boyer, Justin Forbes, and others.

Thanks to Red Hat's continued investment, Fedora has improved a lot over the years.
