How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I have the pleasure of getting to work with every department at Rachio. From Finance to Engineering, we get to collaborate, plan, and execute on projects across the board to drive revenue and growth for our channels. Rachio's best asset is the wonderful people that work here.


Account Operations Partner

What makes someone successful on your team?

There are two strengths I feel drive success for our team - communication, and a willingness to dig into projects. We have a small team making a lot of big decisions, so clear, concise communication is incredibly important to growing the business. Along that same line, we are small enough that everyone is integral to moving projects forward.
