Company Description

Who is Vin65?

Since 2008, Vin65 has come from start-up to now being the leading wine ecommerce and point of sale platform with a growing client base. It grew because of a team effort - a team who is very passionate about the web – with a large focus on the customer.

We started out with four guys in a basement out of a small town called Abbotsford, BC (Western Canada, right above the US border). In 2013, we moved to Vancouver, BC's Gastown area. We now have offices in Vancouver (Canada/HQ), Napa (USA) and Adelaide (Australia).

If you have a passion for helping build web applications and love working in a team, we want to work with you. We want you to play an active part in our development at a niche and nimble SaaS company.

We play in the wine industry, with over 1300 wineries using our ecommerce, wine club, and POS software today (we are the largest software player in the space). While existing wineries love our tools - our platform design is in need of a design update.
