Engineering at Distru
Our engineering team operates with an ownership mentality. Every engineer at Distru is the mini-CEO of what they work on, and should exhibit traits such as proactiveness, product-mindedness and clear communication.
Features at Distru are initially defined in a PRD by product (often working closely with engineering), then the engineer that owns the feature will create a tech spec for the team to review. Engineering iterates closely and frequently with product/customers/design and other engineers in order to build the best product and workflows possible for our customers.
The engineering team is made out of 2 teams with ~4-5 engineers and an Engineering Manager each, along with our CTO. Our process is:
- 2 week agile sprints
- 3 standups per week
- Weekly feature/project sync for ongoing features
- Monthly retros
- Weekly 1:1s
- Monthly engineering knowledge transfer sessions
We also heavily champion automated testing, small PRs and thorough code reviews.

- Build an immutable double-entry inventory ledger
- Migrate our infrastructure from Heroku to Google Cloud Platform
- Support advanced manufacturing workflows for all kinds of cannabis manufacturers
- Build third party integrations with various tricky government compliance track-and-trace systems
- Building an ETL pipeline to provide Distru data to our Distru Analytics platform
- Integrate with various ERPs
You may be building complex manufacturing workflows such as a production planning tool, multi-output assemblies and tracking labor hours to name a few . This would require you to understand the naunces of our product and customers as well as build flows with a ton of testing and QA in mind to ensure that they work well for all different kinds of edge case flows.
You may be building out a double-entry accounting ledger that needs to capture financial transactions as users are entering data into Distru. This would involve a ton of edge cases to consider (i.e.
What if they enter the data but then need to amend a transaction and the accounting period has closed?).
You may be building a mobile app that allows users in the warehouse to scan barcodes and pick & pack orders in real time. This would involve understanding the customer workflow and optimizing for the best customer experience.
You may be working on greenfield projects like our upcoming harvesting or point of sales modules.

Check out our careers page to see our team, a picture is worth 1000 words: https://www.distru.com/careers
More than half of Distru's seed investors are female/minority-based, this has many times offered us perspectives that we would have otherwise not have had.
Distru was remote-first in order to be able to recruit from all over the world, we have teammates in Canada, US, Spain, Brazil, and Mexico.
We also hire as inclusively as possible, I'd recommend taking a look at the existing Distru team photo: https://www.distru.com/careers
As part of our commitment to an inclusive workplace, we are happy to offer prospective engineers the chance to connect with our engineering employees who come from underrepresented backgrounds. It’s a way to get a better sense of our team and what it might be like to work with us.
If you’re interested in connecting with our team, be sure to bring this up during one of our introductory calls!
Distru offers 3-week vacations per year. We do not believe in unlimited vacation as while that sounds nice on paper, in reality, tends to be a myth. We really do want and encourage you to take all of your vacation days, thus putting a number on it makes it more real and enforceable.
We encourage you to work from anywhere! When one of our employees wanted to leave the US in 2020, we helped him relocate to Mexico.
Love pets! One of the founders had 9 cats once.
Distru is constantly in the effort of leveling up everyone on the team. Examples are engineers getting coaching from top level VPs to reach their career goals to Distru encouraging and sponsoring any open source events our engineers want to attend.
We provide full health coverage for you, and 90% coverage for spouse and dependants.
We care about results not hours. Everyone should operate on the schedule that best fits their needs.
Work from Home
Remote first and forever!

Prioritizes diversity in hiring
We strive for diversity on our team, no other way to put it. It starts at the top where half of our investors are minority/female-led and all the founders are from minority backgrounds.
