Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Legalization is here. Canix is not only establishing the technical foundations of the industry as it grows, but continuously working to improve them. This is the definition of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

  • It's early. We signed up our first paying customer in March '19, grew 40% week-over-week during our time at YC, and are finishing 2019 with ~$1M in annual revenue with >200 customers. It's clear that we're building something people want, and in some cases need. Your work will be pivotal in forming and growing the team, product and company from the ground up.

  • We've known each other for years, and are beyond thrilled to be on this journey together. Our team's got it all—from sales, to product, to engineering. We've built teams, started companies, and developed products and infrastructure used by millions of people.

Engineering team and processes

We're currently a team of 3, soon to be 5. 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 (read: terrible) 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

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.


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
