Active Roles

Why join us?

  • It's clear that we're building something people want, and our traction shows it. 1500 facilities across the US and Canada use Canix to run their business, helping them process over $100M USD in direct sales and manage 20M+ plant and inventory items to date.

  • This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Legalization is here, and Canix is not only establishing the technical foundations of the industry as it grows, but continuously working to improve them with every feature that we ship.

  • It's early. Your work will be pivotal in forming and growing the team, company and an entire industry from the ground up.

  • We have a superb founding team, across sales, support, engineering and product. We've built teams, started companies, and developed products and infrastructure used by millions of people around the world before embarking on this journey together.


Engineering at Canix

Engineering team and processes

We're currently an engineering team of 8. Our process is simple: identify an opportunity to make it easier for our customers to run their business (be it a product, infrastructure improvement, or development tool), run it by the team, and build it. We use daily check-ins to hold each other accountable, weekly meetings to plan the next cycle of work, and 3 month check-ins to talk about the company's priorities and goals as a whole. Everything else is up to you.

Technical Challenges
  • Integrating with hardware (e.g. wireless scale integrations for weighing product during and after harvest/processing or RFID scanners for plant tracking).

  • Working with gnarly 3rd-party APIs to push/pull data to/from our backend with a high degree of accuracy and timeliness.

  • Delivering beautiful and effective UIs to help our customers accomplish their work (some of our customers have not used a smartphone before).

  • Writing efficient mobile applications that can work both online and offline to process hundreds of thousands of plant changes in sporadic network conditions.

  • Managing payments for an often overlooked population of underbanked customers: the entire cannabis supply chain.

Projects you might work on
  • Developing (or re-developing) our offline client-side architecture. Canix is the only offline-enabled software in the industry, and we need to continue to push the boundaries with what we can accomplish for our customers with little to no internet connectivity.

  • Hardware integrations with RFID-enabled labels and long-distance readers to power streamlined compliance and sales for some of the biggest players in the cannabis industry.

  • Building the first-ever cannabis CRM. Connecting our customers to buyers & sellers, most of whom have traditionally used ancient email/phone/rolodex type systems to avoid prosecution in the illicit cannabis market.

Working at Canix

We’re a lean team by design. Our aim is to be adaptable—to be able to build high quality solutions to a wide range of problems, both age-old and entirely greenfield, and to do so across a wide range of focus areas, not all of which are related to engineering. If you find a problem, make it your own to solve.

We value speed, thoughtfulness, open communication (honesty, and oftentimes bluntness), and an active passion in helping people survive and thrive in the age of cannabis legalization.

Perks & benefits
  • Travel

    We ask everyone on our team to physically visit at least one customer when they join, and encourage regular in-person check-ins at least once every 3-6 months. We understand the power of relationships in building great products that people want.

  • Flexible Hours

    No rules around hours. We only care that the work gets done and the impact is felt.

  • Work from Home

    Canix holds a remote-friendly culture. We know how important focus is to getting work done, and how much of an impact your location can have on getting things done. Our office is always here if you need it.

  • Health Insurance

    We provide full medical and dental coverage to all our employees (1/2 of us are Canadian, we wouldn't have it any other way).

  • Pet Friendly

    Ruff' said.

  • Company Retreats

    Every 6 months, we plan a roadmapping/team retreat—Vegas and Tahoe were first on our list, and we have many more to come!

  • Beautiful Office
