Back End Developer

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - Full Time

About Us:

iQmetrix is the leading provider of innovative software solutions for the wireless market. Our head office is in Vancouver with other offices in Regina, Winnipeg, Charlotte (North Carolina) and Denver.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of iQmetrix; Cova Software is a leading software solutions company that designs and builds products to elevate the dispensary experience. Our point-of-sale solution is purpose-built for the cannabis industry based on years of research and expertise; our digital signage and menus integrate seamlessly with our POS, providing a suite of tools to help bring dispensaries to the next level.

The legal marijuana market is one of the fastest growing industries in North America. Cova operates as a start-up within a solid, well-established parent software company. Collectively, our software can be found in over 18,000 stores across North America in various verticals, and we support customers who have one location and some who have thousands of locations.  Cova has already invested millions of dollars to get ahead of demand as additional states legalize and license new marijuana stores. 

We’re a mix of dreamers, strategists and technologists determined to leave the world better than how we found it. We know the future is unwritten, and subject to improvement, so we try to imagine what that future looks like – and devise ways to build it. Let's shape the next generation of dispensaries together.
