Who We Are
TREEZ is an enterprise retail and integrated ecommerce software platform. We're funded, growing quickly, and looking for a director of software engineering who want to make a real difference in the cannabis industry. The job is challenging, but rewarding. We are only looking for people at a point in their life/career where they are willing to make the commitment to do something BIG.
Our goal is to optimize and automate cannabis dispensary operations, creating a cooperative ecosystem that allows operators to continually improve every aspect of their business, from employee management, to inventory control, to patient care. By easily adapting to your brand, and collecting valuable data from every corner of your business, Treez offers something wholly unique to cannabis operators, large and small.
We’re a startup that’s hitting our stride. You know what that means, right? Fast-paced atmosphere, super driven and brilliant people, and evolving technical challenges that should excite the most passionate of engineers. We welcome strong opinions if you can back them up! You might want to line someone up to walk the dog because there will be some late nights around release times. We’re already working with some of the biggest players in California, and that hasn’t gone to our heads. We’ve got an aggressive time table for major market capture and we intend to make it happen. We’re located in a cool tech-centric slice of Oakland, CA. Our office is conveniently located near BART in downtown Oakland and we take care of our employees. Still interested? Please read on!
