In your role as Atola’s CTO you manage product development and coordinate the work of the ever-growing team of engineers. You're also involved in liaising with customers, market analysis and a whole range of other activities. Which part of your job do you regard as the most important and the most challenging?
This one is very easy to answer. Managing product development is my number one priority due to both the importance and the complexity of it.
We always listen to our customers’ feedback regarding the new features they want to see in our products. Besides that, the Atola dev team frequently comes up with ideas about how to improve the feature set as well as our products’ overall performance and usability. Plus there is always a backlog of defects to be fixed. Balancing out all these development wish lists demands strategy, critical thinking and sometimes courage.
