About the Company
Rorus makes the world’s most usable and affordable drinking-water filters because safety needs to be simple. Rorus is an American for-profit startup company with an Indian subsidiary company. We make safer water filters for developing countries and disaster relief. We've been recognized in Forbes 30 Under 30, won SXSW, and Collision Conf. Our filters have been used in India, Nigeria, Nepal, Tanzania, and the US.
Every day, 8,000 people die from drinking contaminated water. Other water purification methods are either too difficult to use or too expensive. Affordable options, like solar disinfection, are hard to use and tedious. Comprehensive and easy options, such as bottled water and reverse osmosis, are too expensive. People use these purifiers incorrectly or don’t use them at all and get sick.
Rorus makes portable and household water filters that work for people, rather than making them work for their water. Our designs translate across languages and cultures. We make water filters that break the pattern by being both cost effective and easy to use.
We have four full-time employees: three in the US and one in India.
*These responsibilities will likely become a separate role as we grow the team. At that time, the SCE will be responsible for working closely with this newer employee to complete the same goals more efficiently.

Helpful but not required:
As part of a high-growth startup team, we adapt and fill roles as needed. You should be comfortable learning new skills as you go, be agile enough to deal with frequent changes, and have the confidence to learn from errors.
We offer a salary in addition to equity and bonuses for hitting key metrics. Salary will be dependent on experience, fit for the role, balance with an equity stake, and cost of living.
We’re a compulsively curious and talented team, motivated by a practical opportunity to scale safer water solutions and provide for humanitarian needs. We don’t micromanage each other or play office politics. We don’t aim to be either traditional or rebellious; we aim to be effective in a challenging and exciting market.
