...but each and every day, my job seems to get busier and busier – and even more chaotic. Each day as I drive home, I tell myself “It can't possibly get any crazier!” – and each day, it gets even crazier. These are symptoms of a very good problem at the company I work for: success!
In the past year, my little team has gone from two people to five people (and probably a sixth within a couple of weeks). I still have five more “official” openings (Are you a crazy good programmer? Talk to me!) – and I suspect by the time I get those positions filled, I'll have even more.
And meanwhile, the work keeps piling on. We're acquiring new customers at an ever-increasing rate, and existing customers are using our product for more and more things.
All of this means lots and lots of work for us. But it's a good kind of problem to have, compared with the opposite (a product that nobody wants to buy).
So when you see a few days with no posts from me, now you know why!
