Senior Internal Controls Auditor

Finance | Masson-Angers, QC | Permanent | Full Time

Let’s build an industry leader… The right way.

In 2013, we created Hydropothecary to meet the needs of the medical cannabis market. With the addition of HEXO, our adult-use cannabis brand to our roster, we’ve set our sights on being a market leader – through innovation, sustainability, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

We have the opportunity to make the cannabis industry serious, business-oriented, and responsible. So we’re building a dynamic team of professionals that aren’t afraid to step outside of their role, try new things, and challenge the status quo.

And as a Senior Internal Controls Auditor, you’ll support our finance team by ensuring all our internal controls are providing a strong foundation to get us there.
