About The Position
We were founded to transform the world of cannabis by creating functional highs that help you do all the life stuff better. We launched in 2016, and since then, we’ve advanced from a start-up to Colorado's fastest-growing edibles brand. Our company has been touted by media, industry watchers and consumers as one of the most exciting brands in the cannabis space. This is an incredible time of expansion for 1906 and we are rapidly growing beyond Colorado. We are currently seeking long-term, committed and enthusiastic team members to grow with us. 1906 offers a competitive salary, incentive bonuses based on performance, and competitive health and wellness benefits.

1906 is simply the most innovative brand in cannabis and a major challenger in the wellness space. In the last two years we have quintupled revenue, released a six formula new product line novel in the market, created the world’s first edible for cognitive focus, and expanded to multiple new states.

Our finance team is seeking a Senior Accountant!

1906 New Highs is an innovative multi-state operator (MSO) in the fast-growing cannabis edibles industry. We license our suite of experience-focused, plant-based edibles (drops, beans, and chocolate peanut butter cups) to licensee partners in five states: Colorado, Arizona, Oklahoma, Illinois, and Massachusetts. In 2022, we are expanding to more new markets, including Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and New Jersey. We are adding to our team to support these substantial growth plans. 

This new role will help accelerate our team’s progress. The Senior Accountant will report to the Controller. This can be a remote position, but ideally the candidate will be located in the Denver area, and work one day per week on-site from our Henderson, CO licensed manufacturing facility.

  • Design and document standard operating procedures (SOP’s) and internal control processes. 
  • Assist with other finance, accounting, and administrative projects as needed.
