About the role

Cannabis is big right now, and it needs a platform to match. Canix (YC S'19) is building the first generation of modern ERP software for a nascent industry. Our app helps customers cut costs, overcome compliance regulations, sell more product, and streamline their day-to-day; seed to sale, rain or shine. However, it's the relationships we've built that have allowed us to become the top performer in the cannabis enterprise resource planning (ERP) industry. As such, we are looking to continue building out our Customer Experience team with the addition of a Customer Success Manager.
