An Insider's view of Banyan Water

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Excellent! I love the flexibility provided by the Banyan Executive Team. The ability to focus on work but also reap the benefits of living in beautiful cities like San Francisco or Austin is something I truly value. I often find myself going for a run or climbing before my work day begins.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Understanding water flow. Although this may sound straightforward, it is one of the final areas to be disrupted by IoT technologies. As we're learning and collecting data, we're constantly refining our approach to success and applying known tools like artificial intelligence to something so simple as flowing water.

Ben

Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

I think an entrepreneurial attitude goes a long way to being successful at Banyan Water. We are a small team tackling big challenges, and so we often have to step up to the plate on assignments and projects you might be unfamiliar with. It's fast paced, but you have the opportunity to learn a ton!

What is your vision for the company?

We're a mission driven organization because water scarcity is one of the most critical issues of our time. Here at Banyan we're addressing that through cutting edge technology. Our goal is to be the leading provider of data driven solutions to conserve water on both a national and global scale.

Gillan

CEO

What are some social events your company does?

At the end of each month we have an all hands meeting. These are not only great opportunities to ask questions for leadership or compliment someone on a job well done, but the lunches are usually catered from a great local restaurant!
