The city is an advanced technology hub, interested in bringing new innovations to water. With a tremendous local talent pool from which to recruit, we will continue to hire high‐tech software engineers and support staff to lead our growth in cutting edge technologies that power SaaS and Big Data.” said Trevor Hill, Chief Executive Officer of FATHOM.FATHOM is a rapidly growing software‐as‐a‐service‐based technology company with a growing list of industry partners and over 4 million meters on the platform.

We have already partnered with local communities including the cities of Corpus Christi, Kennedale, Cedar Hill and Melissa, Texas and we want to continue building relationships here. With the FATHOM LAB, we are investing tens of millions of dollars in the state and are supporting the local economy with new high paying technology jobs,” Mr. Hill continued. “As conservation measures continue to be more effective, utilities will need new ways to increase revenue without raising water rates. FATHOM offers that capability and working together with our partner utilities and Texas we know we can solve the challenges of water scarcity together.”
