THE COMPANY: PAX Labs is an award-winning consumer technology brand with a mission to establish cannabis as a force for good. Our products set a high bar for quality and, together with the PAX web and Android apps, offer unique features such as safety locking, adjustable temperature and draw control. As millions of consumers try cannabis for the first time or return to it after a long hiatus, PAX believes that quality, transparency and predictability are the keys to safe, responsible use by adults. Headquartered in San Francisco, PAX is backed by leading technology investors including Tiger Global and Tao Invest (Pritzker family fund). We are an extraordinary team with hardware and software backgrounds in consumer technology, healthcare, and biotech, and we are growing to deliver on our mission. Our internal culture values diversity, integrity, having an impact, and passion for the larger movement that PAX is a part of.

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES: We’re looking for a lead front-end software engineer to join our remote team — work from anywhere in Canada or the US. The ideal candidate will lead our team of front-end engineers in creating compelling web experiences for PAX users. They will have deep experience building scalable front-end applications, delivering projects, reviewing code, and mentoring other engineers.

Finally, we hire team players. As a leader, you play a major part in shaping the team’s values, as well as the wider culture of PAX. We value people who foster inclusive teams and atmospheres, and are excited to establish cannabis as a force for good.
