Creative Director

  • San Luis Obispo, CA
  • Full-time


Flume, a fast growing, venture-backed startup, shares the common belief that our current interaction with water usage, as well as the infrastructure for collecting water usage data, is in desperate need of improvement. At Flume, we have developed a connected home product that provides homeowners with real time water usage information down to the minute. Our product is non-invasive and simply attaches to an existing water meter without requiring professional installation. The Flume application allows the homeowner to budget their water consumption, compare their usage to similar households and record events such as irrigation. Most importantly our application protects homes from elusive and devastating water leaks that, until now, often go unnoticed for weeks.
