How I manage agency projects

I’ve both worked in classic startup environments, where you typically work on one or two big products, and agency environments where there’s anywhere between 5 and 25 ongoing projects at any time.


First some background: we’re a small agency based in Amsterdam, developing mobile applications for iOS and Android, as well as bespoke web applications. My colleague Dante and I both work full time on managing projects and doing some of the design and development work. We’re surrounded by a team of part-timers and contractors, made up of designers and React Native, iOS, Android and web developers. Nearly all of them work remotely.
