Issue 1: Many products to work with

We are working with many products, with various level of difficulties, with various customers.

We are working (8 people)

  • big data analytics for public transportation
    • backend
    • frontend
    • Ops
  • smart city platform where we develop many and many modules(really many)
    • various integrations with devices and web services
    • backend
    • frontend
    • Ops
  • ERP system for one government unit
    • various integrations with web services
    • backend
    • frontend
    • Ops
  • task management tool with mobile app
    • backend
    • frontend
    • Ops
  • research projects(2-3 projects each year)
    • algorithms
    • supporting with data retrieval
  • embedded application which works on field
    • Ops (mainly supporting field operations)
    • integrations(rare)
  • tunnel incident detection platform
    • backend
    • various integrations with devices and web services
    • Ops
  • demos which mainly don’t give any results

As you can see, there is more than average load on 8 people.

In my case, I am really tired of context switching. I hate every time when I need to connect with SSH or Anydesk, check integrator DB which can only be connected using Windows.

Issue 2: Expectation that we are still startup

Expecting constant motivation and energy is unreasonable.

Yet, it is expected that we must cheer every day.

Issue 3: No sign of future major success

All mentioned products are not growing as we wish.

I would understand if there was some sign of impending major success yet there is nothing.
