Location: Santa Rosa, CA + Some Remote

Our purpose is to help small business communities thrive.

We’re changing the wine industry forever by delivering a service the wineries have wanted for a long time.  Although sharing numbers with your peers and neighbors is a provocative concept, we have received unprecedented industry support and are rapidly becoming the wine industry standard.

We added over 100 wineries to our platform in 2018 and will at least double each year for the next three years.

We are deeply passionate about helping winery communities make more confident and effective decisions driven by data.  We are incredibly ambitious and competitive, yet humble, curious, and accepting.  Whether you build, market, sell or support and manage product, we want you to make your mark with us.

What’s the Opportunity?

It’s extremely satisfying to bring someone new perspective on their business – especially when it’s a winery.  Do you want to accelerate your career in software, data, and wine by being working in a new technology startup?  Do you want to be part of a fast paced, no politics environment and have a huge impact on your company’s future?

If the answer is yes to the above, you may have found your dream job and we may have found our dream hire.
