    Who We Are

    Flow Kana is a recognized leader in California cannabis giving scale to the small farmer ecosystem in Mendocino and Humboldt counties who engage in sun-grown, sustainable farming. Along with creating a premier brand, we’re building the cannabis supply chain backbone of California.

    Flow Kana purchased a historic family winery in Mendocino consisting of 170,000 sqft of industrial space over 300 acres and have converted it into the world's largest cannabis production and distribution facility. Here, we are bringing the entire supply chain under one roof - from processing to testing and packaging to manufacturing.

    The Product and Engineering teams are building innovative applications that represent supply chain management, inventory forecasting, farmer apps, wholesale buyer portals, BI tools, and online e-commerce systems. Our team members come from Google, Netflix, Twitter, Intuit, Square, Sungevity, CoreLogic, Nitro and others, and we are excited about building the technology that drives the California cannabis supply chain.

    With a business model that supports small farmers driven by specialized technology we also have the opportunity to build an agricultural model centered around small, independent farmers which could be replicated around the world. If this gets you excited, too, we encourage you to keep reading!

    Our technology team is growing rapidly and immediately hiring several product management, UX design and software engineering roles (backend, front end and full stack).

    Our Culture

    You've probably heard cannabis will be a $40+ billion industry by as early as 2020. While it is no doubt there is enormous market potential, more importantly, the Flow Kana team sees an incredible opportunity to shape the future of an entire industry.

    Through a values-driven approach and a regulated market, we are breaking down prohibition stigmas to show how cannabis is playing a role in treating many common medical conditions, as well as provide important tax and societal benefits. We also believe in the opportunity to build an agricultural model centered around small, independent farmers which could be replicated around the world.

    As a company, we value humility, accountability, kindness and a pioneering spirit.

    We have been identified by Entrepreneur Magazine as a national leader in social and eco responsibility.

    Leafly rated Flow Kana “Best Overall Company” in California cannabis for 2018.

    We were a 2018 finalist for the Fast Company World Changing Ideas awards for our work in preserving the small-farmer ecosystem, sustainability, and protecting cannabis biodiversity.

    Our CEO was named by MJ Business Journal as one of the top 20 people to watch in Cannabis in 2018.

    And we like to have fun in innovative ways: In 2018, Flow Kana made history as the first cannabis brand to provide gift packs backstage at the Academy Awards. Yes, really! Flow Kana delivered premier gift boxes stocked with flower and pre-rolls from our network of organic, artisan cannabis farmers to A-list celebrities backstage at the Oscars. Flow Kana products were also seen circulating at the major Oscar After Party events, such as the Vanity Fair and Governor’s Ball parties.

    This is not an ordinary software job. Rather, it's an exciting journey of important causes, beautiful places and with very special people.
