About Kairos Water, Inc

Kairos’ commercial solution features a multifunction leak detection device (Noah™) and advanced water meter (Moses™) that work together to identify and mitigate catastrophic water events. Attached to Noah is a leak detection membrane that can sense a few drops of water where water should not be. These membranes are available in a variety of formats to fit any appliance, fixture, or space. The Moses™ water meter does more than measure water usage, it can detect large and small leaks and, if necessary, shut off water to a living space to avert catastrophic flooding.

Note: This role is a work-from-home position using teleconferencing tools. In-person all-hands meetings may be scheduled as needed.
