Production Manager

Website Stillwater Brands

the leading THC- and CBD-infused edibles brands

About Stillwater Brands:

Stillwater Brands was founded in 2015, when our Michigan-native co-founder’s grandmother asked him to get her a pot brownie. Realizing that grandma cared more about feeling better than getting stoned, we set out to develop functional cannabinoid-infused food and beverage products that delivered consistent and predictable cannabis experiences. And that’s exactly what we’ve done.

Today, Stillwater sells some of the leading THC- and CBD-infused edibles brands in Colorado under the Ripple brand name, including Ripple Dissolvables, Ripple Gummy Supplements, and Ripple QuickSticks — and now we’re bringing those products to Michigan!

  • We are a team of competent, motivated, diverse, and decent adults.
  • We offer competitive compensation, 100% paid health benefits, and a fun, relaxed office environment.
  • We are a workplace of adults who value reasoned debate over political maneuvering. We try to do the right thing and, more importantly, we try to identify and admit when we don’t.
  • We offer flexible PTO for all full-time employees. We too value health, relaxation, and spending time with friends and family.
