An Insider's view of Leafly

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's amazing. I’m not really a cannabis user, and when I interviewed it was the people, vibe, and opportunity that drew me in. It’s exciting to make new things that consumers will see and use, that will help them find what they’re looking for. It’s what we’re all about.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's a fun place to work. We're part of great company at the forefront of a young industry. We celebrate wins, group wins, individual wins, the whole team jumps in to congratulate wins big and small. And cannabis is something I’m passionate about, so, for me, working here is its own kind win.
