Some of your colleagues

At Namaste Technologies, you get to work with amazing and passionate colleagues on some truly awesome technology. What’s not to love? We also offer you a chance to be challenged, make an impact, work flexibly, be part of a team and all this in an international work environment.

  • Challenge

    Working with the kind of advanced technology that we do means there is always a cool challenge waiting to be solved. We have developed strong solutions to help medical patients get access to cannabis, and we love to think creatively on ways to make it even better.

  • Impact

    Although we are constantly growing, we still act like a small company where everyone’s voice is heard, and where if you have a cool idea you can implement it by tomorrow. Whether you’re working on our product, sales or communication, you’ll have a chance to make a difference from day one.

  • Flexibility

    Whether you are a parent or a professional hockey player (we have both on the team), we believe that work should fit into your life and leave energy for the things you love. We offer flexible work arrangements in both time and place to help our employees manage this.

  • Team Feeling

    We are a diverse team with a variety of nationalities, perspectives, and skills. We truly like working with each other and we have lots of fun together. We try to meet each other at least twice a year for an international off-site.

We are a team of passionate individuals working together for the same goal – to bring cannabis to the world. Even though we’re not a start-up anymore, it’s really important to us to preserve that part of our culture – the part where everyone’s contribution makes an impact on the final result, where we are all accountable and where we work creatively and collaboratively to solve whatever problem comes up. Most importantly, as we grow, it’s important us to maintain our high levels of energy, passion and drive.
