As a member of our team, you’ll get to make an immediate, measurable impact on a global scale, within industries from aviation to manufacturing to mining. You’ll also be part of an environment that fosters career growth and professional development, with kindness at its core. And you’ll be part of our mission, which drives us to develop water quality solutions that protect the health and safety of all living things.

Motivated by the highest possible stakes of climate change and global health, we’re working together within a rapidly digitizing industry to find innovative technologies that guarantee the safety of our water and our environment.

We have an opportunity open for a Regional Sales Manager (RSM) that will lead strategic sales targeting large industrial customer accounts with multiple influencers in the East Texas territory. You'll promote the company’s industrial products, from instrumentation and reagents to fully integrated solutions and services. Working from a home office, this highly autonomous role requires strong intuition for business, planning, and the ability to execute strategic sales plans.

Position will prospect customers in the power, beverage, pulp & paper, and some chemical (oil & gas, refining) areas. If new business development is your passion, then this could be the job for you! There is much opportunity in this large territory from Texarkana to Houston. Travel at least 50% (we provide you with a car, you must have a valid driver’s license & good driving record) and expect that if you love new business development, then you will also love being out of the office and meeting customers.
