** Disclaimer: We are attempting to build a local, or at least Western Canada-based team. We love remote work, but we utilize a hybrid model of work from home, remote, and in-office hours as we are of the belief that there's a strong connection between in-person chemistry and company culture. With that being said, we will give precedence to applicants that are Calgary-based, and will work that into our considerations when sending out interview requests. At this time, it's highly unlikely that we will be looking to hire anybody living and working outside of Canada.
