Ryan Budny: "I have been a developer at Flowhub since April of 2015. Green-fielded both a grow application and point of sale application for the cannabis industry.  I work extensively with the Metrc API for all the products Flowhub offers. I really enjoy alleviating the pain points of working in the cannabis industry through software. Before becoming a developer and working at Flowhub, I spent a year in an economics phd program, but decided academia would not be a good fit -- I needed something more hands on and impactful." Alex Erin Johnson: As Market Development Representative for Flowhub, Alex serves to help cannabis license holders grow their business with a compliance-focused and consultative approach. Alex joined Flowhub in 2016 to contribute her efforts to the larger mission of de-stigmatizing this revolutionary plant and helping make regulated cannabis accessible for everyone in need.
