Bevi is a Series C startup that has raised over $60 million to bring customizable, healthy hydration to offices and facilities across the US and Canada. Founded in 2013, our co-founders set out to out-design bottled water. Within five years time, Bevi has saved the waste generated by over 50 million plastic bottles and seen revenue grow at a rapid pace. With offices now in Boston, New York, and San Francisco, we continue to grow our healthy flavor offerings and constantly strive to bring the next level of customization to the Bevi hydration experience.

  • Provide technical mentoring across all projects and levels.
  • Drive work independently while managing ambiguity, and be proactive in managing and communicating risk
  • Work with research and develop new solutions to challenging problems, creating a pipeline of new technology to be incorporated into new products.
