Engineering at Canopy
Our engineering process is a mixture of lean, agile, kanban, Our ultimate philosophy regarding norms is that everything is an experiment and we'll try out most things.

Work is distilled from our core company objectives.
We move very fast and try to work with as little technical debt as possible. While we are doing novel things, we are not yet at the scale to write our own libraries for anything.
We expect that engineers on the team to be highly intelligent and well composed. We live to solve problems that matter.

Working at Canopy
One of the main reasons we started Canopy was because we were tired of being slowed down by traditional companies. We work hard, not because we have to, but because we are pushing technology to new places, and creating long lasting impact in the world because of it.
We stand on the shoulders of giants, so that we can enjoy solving big gnarly challenges.
We look at our employees as olympic athletes. We hire the best of the best in a given area, and do everything in our power to help them win the gold medal, but at the end of the day the person running the race is you.
We are a very honest company. We ultimately want as little politics, bureaucracy, and red tape as possible, but we do put a large amount of energy into team communication and connectedness.
We will get together, plan an approach, try it out, and make adjustments together. The team is constantly running experiments to see what works best for all of us.
We expect you to be able to both coach others and be coached by others.
