As our employee spotlight series continues, this week we talked with Tim Reusch, an Enterprise Account Executive based in Seattle, Washington. Tim works closely with several departments in our company to discuss what customers are looking for in a product and what we can do to improve our platform.
Why did you join Artemis?
Tim: I joined Artemis because I saw the opportunity to help growers evaluate and better understand what is happening in their facility to better position them for long term success.
What were you doing before Artemis?
Tim: I was with a company called the Dramm Corporation for four years, managing the Western United States. Dramm is a greenhouse industry company supplying watering and chemical application tools, irrigation design and supply, as well as water treatment and water management solutions.
What is your favorite memory here?
Tim: Onboarding a client in California and working collaboratively with the Customer Success and Engineering team to ensure a great start to our relationship with the client.
How long have you worked here?
Tim: I have been with Artemis since October 2019.
What’s your favorite core value?
Tim: We align around solutions, not consensus. I love this industry and have been involved in it for nearly a decade. I genuinely care about the success of clients and making sure they have the right tools for the job! We form lasting relationships with our clients and want to celebrate and empower their success by building a product that will help them.
What’s been the weirdest adjustment from working wherever you were before to working here?
Tim: Transitioning from supporting physical hard goods to understanding the complexities of supporting software.
What would you recommend for potential future Artemis employees?
Tim: Be curious about everything, and do not be afraid to ask, question, and challenge the why.
How do you feel about remote work?
Tim: I have been working remotely for about 5 years, and have gotten pretty comfortable with it. There are definitely certain social drawbacks of not being in a physical office anymore, however you can be extremely productive and be very intentional with interacting with your other remote peers.
What are you most excited about for the Artemis future?
Tim: I am very excited about the continued partnership with environmental control companies to help growers get a better understanding of how their environment is affecting crop performance. I am also looking forward to the continued development of having a more traceable production system to ensure we have safe products for consumers.
If you had $20 what would you do with it this weekend?
Tim: I’d be going to my local brewery if they were open.
