I have quite a few friends who are pursuing careers in the energy efficiency space. It’s a great industry because it allows you to make the world a better place while still working at a for-profit. Water use efficiency doesn’t get the same level of attention, but you can argue that it’s equally important. Clean water is a limited resource that is especially scarce in many areas. Conservation is one of the simplest solutions, and that’s what WaterSmart Software is all about. They are based in San Francisco, CA, and they aim “to help water utilities make it easier for their customers to save water and save money.” I always find it weird that utility companies can grow their businesses by convincing consumers to use less of what they sell, but that’s the way things work these days.
WaterSmart Software develops software-as-a-service that utilities can plug their meter data into to get additional insights into “customers, their consumption, & their program participation.” You can get a complete overview of what the software does and the kind of results that it has delivered here. It’s amazing what a little bit of data and a little communication of what that data means can do when it comes to conserving natural resources. If you’d like to help WaterSmart Software help utilities help their customers conserve water (I know this sentence is ridiculous), check out WaterSmart’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for an Inside Sales Associate and a paid Marketing and Operations Intern.
