What is life like for an IT leader after the company goes IPO?

Being an IT leader is always challenging and after an IPO there are new challenges to deal with. I always enjoy resolving business problems through technology automation. We are still trying to do a lot in one or two quarters, because we now have to produce more detailed metrics as a public company and meet all our goals on time, while also passing compliance audits. There is a lot of internal pressure on the sales and marketing teams, so I'm trying to prioritize critical business process automation in order to figure out how quickly I can enable them, as well as how quickly we can address the technical debt. That's the core focus now. We’re also working on improving the infrastructure to drive a better employee experience: What can we do to enable our employees, so they can work with our customers at speed? What automations can I put in place now to scale the organization to the next level and how can we make the company more profitable through tech stack optimization.
