Company Introduction

Grownetics is the future of agricultural artificial intelligence,
and recognized as one of the most advanced cannabis technology
companies in the world. By combining big data and machine learning
optimization algorithms, Grownetics helps growers reduce costs,
decrease energy usage, and increase overall quality and yield.
Think the “self driving car” for agriculture, a smart-thinking,
fully automated farm. The 60% operational cost savings
experienced by Grownetics customers have been validated by the
University of Colorado’s associated research team and the company
has won awards including “Best New Technology Company” from the
University of Colorado and the Denver Post’s award for “Best
Cannabis Technology Startup” in the USA.

Working at Grownetics

Grownetics is a remote-first company. In this age of innovation and
instant global communication we think it is silly to limit our
potential talent pool to people who happen to be located in a
specific geographic area. We provide a great deal of agency to our
employees and trust them to manage their time effectively to
complete what they need to get done, while still maintaining a
healthy work/life balance. As such we are looking for a specific
type of personality that is compatible with how we work.

  • Self-starters who can get things done without always needing

clear direction.

  • Good writers. We communicate primarily online, so all

teammates must be able to communicate effectively.

  • Detail oriented, erring on the side of over communication.

for the infrastructure that supports Grownetics, it’s clients, and
its development team. You will work closely with the CTO and
development team to define and implement a wide range of
initiatives. Some of the challenges include scaling Grownetics
services to support a global SaaS platform, as well as building
tools and processes to support analytics, monitoring,
machine-learning and data-warehousing. You will define and
implement various strategies covering everything from subnets to
backups to fog networking/computing configuration and deployments.


  • Provision, configure, maintain, backup, and monitor onsite

and cloud based server resources

  • Define and implement deployment strategies for client-facing

and internal tool systems

  • Continual improvement and fine-tuning of various alerting and

monitoring systems

  • Travel to client locations to install and configure onsite


  • On-call duty to respond to urgent bugs or outages


  • 2+ years experience in software/systems development

software systems

PHP, Ruby, Python, Javascript, Elixir, Go or comparable

  • Strong background in Linux administration

  • Experience with automation/configuration software (puppet,

ansible), and/or orchestration software (docker swarm,
kubernetes, etc)

  • Strong understanding of computer networks
  • Experience with administration of Redis, MariaDB/Mysql,

Nginx, etc, at production scale

  • Strong understanding of Docker and containerized systems
