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 App, 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 exceptional team with hardware and software backgrounds in consumer technology, healthcare, and biotech, and 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.

We’re looking for a senior front-end software engineer to join our Canadian engineering team. Due to COVID-19, this role is remote for the foreseeable future — work from anywhere in Canada. On the other side of the pandemic, we are planning to establish a Toronto office for occasional meet-ups or for you to work out of regularly.

We’re looking for someone with considerable experience building out scalable front-end architectures and who is comfortable establishing coding patterns for the team, including for interactions with APIs, building responsive UIs, effective testing, etc.


In general, we’d like an experienced front-end engineer for this role. We won’t put a number on it, but we’re looking for engineers who have done it before. Here are some more details:

  • A demonstrated ability to adapt to new tools is at the top of our wishlist.

  • Right now, we’re working primarily with modern JavaScript, TypeScript, React, and Redux.

  • Experience in modern Java is a nice-to-have.

  • Experience building responsive web applications that render well on all devices.

  • You should work effectively without direct supervision — the team is and will be remote for some time.

  • For the same reason, strong and proactive communication skills are essential.

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