Company/Location Specific Information

Aquasana is a leader in water filtration. Our filters are marketed in nearly every country around the world. Our mission is to make whole-body 'water health' as easy, accessible, and economical as possible.

The filters produce the healthiest and best-tasting water available. Health-conscious consumers know that it is critical to filter tap water before they drink it, cook with it or bathe in it because it is loaded with harmful chemicals. Only 91 contaminants are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, yet more than 60,000 chemicals are used within the U.S.

Aquasana was purchased by A. O. Smith Corporation, a global leader in water technology which includes water heating and treatment, during 2016, and is part of its North America Water Treatment division. The North America Water Treatment division is a dynamic organization that is rapidly growing organically and inorganically, and into other channels. We are a tight-knit team with a fast paced, energetic, and entrepreneurial company culture.

This position will be based out of our corporate office in Austin, Texas.
