Lead Internet of Things (IoT) Engineer – Austin, TX

Banyan Water is on a mission to use technology to help businesses save water. We’re a small company that’s found product market fit and profitability, but are still hungry to scale. We’re building our technology team to help imagine and build new features and product offerings for our industry leading water management platform, Banyan Water Central.

We like small teams, fast iteration, and communicating with our users as often as possible. We value urgency in making decisions, a sense of playfulness, and a spirit of purpose in our mission to save water.

You will be responsible for the quality of the team’s day-to-day work and the execution of delivering the long-term technology roadmap for our company. This is a high impact role reporting to the CEO, and you will help Banyan grow by setting our technology direction, nurturing a small but mighty engineering team, and helping to nurture and grow our core business.
