What is Qatium?
Qatium is a SaaS solution created to analyze water distribution networks and help operators optimize their network performance. The objective: make the best use of a scarce and vital resource, water.
Up to 50% of clean water may get lost before it reaches the tap. Qatium’s mission is to create tools that can help in making the management of water infrastructure more efficient.

What about Qatium’s challenges?
We have no choice but to innovate
Qatium is competing face to face against heavy desktop applications, but as a web application.
In order to succeed, we have to use the resources provided by the browser to their full potential. You will use technologies such as Mapbox and you will have to care about your code’s efficiency. Also, most of the app’s logic runs in the browser: there is no backend.
We’re building a completely new product, building the tools and frameworks that make Qatium possible.
We apply high quality engineering
Qatium is not a simple CRUD. You will face complex problems related to hydraulic simulation, handling GIS data and real-time graphical representation among others. Qatium is able to ingest and transform data from hundreds of sensors in real time.
Qatium needs to convey a lot of information simultaneously
We are building a single software package for users with different expertise levels inside the water industry. All of this, built over an interactive map. We learn from our users to provide them with the information they find more useful at every moment in time.
We are continuously discovering our path
Being a new product, our future is yet to be built. We have the responsibility of transforming our product vision into software that is useful for our users, relying on their feedback.
We participate in the whole product cycle
We are organized as a single autonomous product team, including people with different backgrounds and expertise levels.
What’s your part in this?
Here are some of the things you will be doing on a daily basis

Deal with algorithms, graph theory, probability and statistics on a regular basis.
Collaborate with designers, hydraulic engineers, and team members of other disciplines to expand the product.
