It's pretty common with small businesses. my first job I was the sole programmer for an industrial refrigeration contractor, so I developed, tested, debugged, installed the software for the client machines. But also built the computers, serviced them, on site repairs/swap outs. I also had to have an electrical license to work on/ build/ install the equipment that the computers worked with. Also design electronics and provided part time IT work for the company.

Before leaving do to high stress after 18 years, I believe I had close to 500 computer systems out there, from Alaska, to BC Canada, to Pennsylvania, to Mexico, but mostly in Washington and Oregon. There was always that "don't worry we will get you help" statement that got passed around every time I would throw a fit about being overworked.

Before I left, I spent 6 months documenting everything I did, and all the software that I had built, so they could find someone new and hopefully hit the ground running. they eventually did, but the last I heard was the business was doing bad for the last few years and everyone was working half time, So I'm ether responsible for that, or I got out just in time; I'm hoping the later.
