    I worked at Pie Digital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Refactored an old Java-centric IoT implementation into a more flexible current technology stack. Team was very effective and got the job done fast!

    Cons

    Primary investment partner pulled the plug too soon.

    Advice to Management

    None to give - we did the best we could!

    I have been working at Pie Digital as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some experienced veteran engineers with startup background. There is good work/life balance. Some people are really trying hard to make a difference.

    Cons

    Founding team was let go and the investors put in a new CEO and team about 2 years ago. But it does not have the right skill set or the background to execute on the vision.Product management has no clue on how to take the product forward.

    Advice to Management

    Pick one strategy and execute it. Try not doing too many things at the same time. Get specialist talent for your problem space.

    I have been working at Pie Digital as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork. Sharp people. Interesting technology. Good business model. The company has been around for a long time but the new CEO has set a clear direction that makes a lot of sense.

    It's a quiet place because everyone works in one big room. But under the surface there is a lot happening every day. No nonsense meetings just real work.

    Cons

    You have to be able to handle the mix of consumer and corporate customers. Can be good or bad depending if you like variety.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course.
