Do you thrive in exciting yet unpredictable environments? Like working hard but don’t take things too seriously? Want to be a part of growing a dynamic company? Well then… let’s talk.

Cova is a leading provider of end-to-end retail solutions for the legal cannabis industry. You can find our software in over 18,000 stores across North America in many different verticals, and we support customers who have one location and some who have thousands of locations. Our company values center around an entrepreneurial spirit that focuses on speed and agility, innovation, quality and customer service. We support community-building events and worthy causes because we believe in reaching out, taking part and giving back. It’s a big part of who we are.

There are only a few industries per generation where you can jump on board a rocket that is taking off. Legal cannabis is the one for this time in history. Cova is a start-up within a solid, well established software company and we intend to own the market for the operational software running these dispensaries. We have already invested millions of dollars to get ahead of demand as additional states legalize and license new marijuana stores.

Our office is casual, accessible to easy public transportation and parking, and within striking distance of coffee shops, pubs and yes, restaurants. We have stipend toward fitness classes, and a Retirement Planning Program consisting of a matching 401K and/or Employee Share Ownership component. We balance hard work with a commitment to lifestyle, competitive benefits and exciting perks.
