We’re on the look out for an experienced Sales person to join our purpose-driven company and drive our B2B sales and partnerships.

Words from Edwin (a.k.a The Water Guy)
Hey you awesome person,
5 Years ago I had a dream - a dream of having what most 24 year old guys wanted: a six-pack. That ambition sent me on an epic training journey, which had me drinking 5 litres of water every single day.
At that time I was still at University, and like most students I couldn’t afford to (or more, I didn't want to) buy plastic bottled water but cafes made me feel awkward when I asked for water.
On the other hand, millions of people around the world (like my parents in Ghana) grow up with no access to clean water at all. I am now on a mission to hydrate the world and spread happiness, one bottle at a time.
My dream is to live in a world where everyone can drink clean water and thrive!
