DevOps Engineer

About Tantalus Labs:

Tantalus Labs was founded on a mission to advance the frontier of cannabis through purpose-built, cannabis-tailored greenhouses.

We are committed to Sungrown, legal cultivation of world-class cannabis products. Our team is a group of specialized scientists, engineers, and designers committed to advancing agricultural science.

To usher in sustainable cannabis cultivation, we created SunLab, Canada’s first greenhouse built specifically for cannabis. It’s North America's fourth-largest cannabis facility, and uses up to 90% less electricity compared to traditional cultivation. It’s a leap forward for our industry; Business Insider even calls us “Tesla of Cannabis.

We believe that a marriage of technology and natural Sungrown cultivation inputs will usher in a brighter future for cannabis.

When a person joins Tantalus Labs today, they’ll be joining at an inflection point of the company. Construction of SunLab is complete, and we’re entering the most exciting part of our business. We’re looking for driven minds to build a bright future for Tantalus Labs and for cannabis.
