About the Company

The Arcview Group is the leading investment and research firm in the cannabis industry started in 2010 with a mission to end marijuana prohibition by building a responsible, politically-engaged, and profitable cannabis industry.

Arcview also publishes The State of Legal Marijuana Markets, the most oft-cited market data and analysis report on the industry. Arcview co-founded Cannasure Insurance Services in 2011 and partnered with Canopy to launch a mentor-driven seed-stage business accelerator in 2014. Arcview has recently launched an online group investing platform for its members that will streamline the investment process for its growing membership.

Arcview was named among the “Top 100 Brilliant Companies” by Entrepreneur Magazine and its principals serve on the boards of the Marijuana Policy Project and the National Cannabis Industry Association.

Work Environment

Despite the fast-paced nature of this role, the company culture is one that radically supports a good work/life balance and encourages no-work weekends and an open-ended vacation policy. At least 4 times per year, you’ll travel for a few days to a new city where we put on a world-class newsworthy event and a legendary party for our clients. You’ll work in a newly renovated sunny office with adjustable standing/sitting desks and a spectacular view of downtown Oakland. The Bart stop is literally five steps from the front door of the impressive historic building. The team values vulnerability, transparency, attention-to-detail, accountability, and commitment to results.
