Water is no longer a utility. It’s a strategic resource. As freshwater access becomes regulated and scarce, companies from energy and construction to food and beauty are turning to CarboNet to reduce, recycle, and renew the water they depend on to thrive.
Our advanced chemistry defines the new era of strategic water treatment, with adaptive solutions that are cleaner, faster, and safer to use. Industry agrees in just two years we captured 70% market share of produced water recycling in the world’s most competitive basin.
We’re building on this strength and looking for a Senior Account Director to expand to other geographies, industries, and applications. This role is foundational at CarboNet as you build out our U.S. footprint.

Duh: Be an expert in your field. Know the chemistry, applications, industries, and regulations that impact us and our customers.
Education: bachelor’s degree in chemistry or water treatment. A master’s degree is a plus. Throw in an MBA and we’re cooking. Experience: A minimum of 5 years in sales or account management within the water treatment industry, with a specific emphasis on polymer/flocculant sales.
