Can you run a Ubuntu VM if you're a Canonical systems administrator?
Hiya! I'm considering applying as a Systems Admin for Canonical, and I'm wondering, can you run Ubuntu in a virtual machine to do the job, or do you have to run it on bare metal? Because I'm kinda strapped for hardware atm, only got one computer that works. And I could self-teach the required stuff as well, started teaching myself Python last week, and according the the description, Python an shell are preferred, although I also wanna teach myself C# or C++ sometime soon as well.
Also, what's the pay on average for this position?
And if a Ubuntu install on hardware is required, I'll have a computer free once I get my first desktop build overwith in the forseeable future, already a third of the way there by scrapping my old computer, and saving the case.
This is a serious question too, looking for some sort of employment that pays better than the part-time work-study I currently have, and home-based so I can just relax at the kbd.
