The Run & Maintain team

The R&M team is a small team of experts of various disciplines. The team is responsible for maintaining apps and websites that have come out of the development stage and were released into production. The team is small but takes care of a large portion of all projects within the company. This means switching from one project to another multiple times a week and sometimes even per day with tasks that can vary from fixing reported bugs to designing and implementing new feature requests. If the workload is low there usually is time to research new technologies or work on some internal tools.
