Junior Backend Software 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. We have an established and stable tech stack, but are tool ambivalent and in a continuous process of innovating new features while maintaining the existing.


The Engineering team is looking for a Junior Backend Software Engineer with interest in applied data analysis and building scalable software solutions.
