Engineering at Distru

Engineering team and processes

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.

Our team is currently a flat structure (will re-org in 2021 as the team scales). Our process is:

  • 2 week agile sprints
  • 2 standups per week (we dive deep in these)
  • Weekly feature/project sync for ongoing features
  • Monthly retros
  • Monthly 1:1s
  • Weekly knowledge transfer sessions

We also heavily champion testing and code reviews at Distru. It is not abnormal to get 25+ comments on a PR when you first join the team!

Technical Challenges
  • We're building out a double entry accounting ledger for tracking financial data
  • We're building barcoding printing and also scanning via a mobile app
  • We're building third party integrations with tricky government compliance systems
  • We're building our advanced manufacturing workflows for supply chain
  • We're building an ETL pipeline to provide Distru data to our Distru Analytics platform
  • We're reworking out inventory module into a ledger based system
Projects you might work on
  • 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 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.

Diversity and Inclusion

As is the cannabis industry, Distru is an incredibly diverse and welcoming workforce. We believe that we need to reflect the industry that we operate in, and bring all different perspectives to the table is one of our #1 priorities.

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

Perks & benefits
  • Generous Vacation

    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.

  • Travel

    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.

  • Pet Friendly

    Love pets! One of the founders had 9 cats once.

  • Workshops/Conferences

    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.

  • Health Insurance

    We provide full health coverage for you, and 90% coverage for spouse and dependants.

  • Flexible Hours

    We care about results not hours. Everyone should operate on the schedule that best fits their needs.

  • Work from Home

    Remote first and forever!

  • Minority-led company

    All 3 co-founders of Distru are minorities. Blaine is Egyptian, Johnny is Chinese and Azam is Pakistani.

  • LGBTQ+ friendly

    Treat People With Kindness.

  • Company Retreats

    Distru plans retreats for the team twice a year, however, since COVID that has not been possible :(

    Weekly AMAs, Virtual Escape Rooms, Secret Santa, Mafia, Wikipedia Race... Games are HUGE at Distru.
