Vangst Turns High Five

To our Vangst Community. Thank you.

This month our team hit a milestone -- our five year anniversary.  After testing the cannabis waters with Gradujuana, we saw an opportunity to launch the go to hiring resource for cannabis. We officially launched Vangst in May of 2016. Since that time, we’ve worked with over 1,500 cannabis businesses across the US & Canada, and we’re proud to have filled over 200,000 cannabis gigs and thousands of full-time senior level jobs. 

Our goal has, and always will be, to connect great people with the best companies in the cannabis industry. Through the hard work and dedication of our team, we can proudly say that five years after our launch, we have grown into the go-to resource for individuals looking to break into or grow in the cannabis industry. 

We want to say thank you to the companies who have partnered with us, candidates who have trusted us with their job search, and the industry who has embraced us over the past five years. Without each of your trust, we wouldn't be here today.

2016: Gradujuana becomes Vangst, and we hire our first five team members.


2017: Grow our team to 20+ and achieve our first $1M+ in revenue year!


2018: Raise a seed round, led by Lerer Hippeau, and launch Vangst GIGS in Colorado and California. We also get really good at Happy Hours.


2019: Grow our team to 60+ and launch in five new markets.


2020 : Launch a new brand and product to better support our community. Work tirelessly from home to support our clients hiring needs during their hardest year. #surthrival


2021: Excited by the explosive growth in cannabis this year. We have hundreds of open jobs on Vangst, and this is just the beginning.
