CTO as a Service - What is it?
All tech companies need a CTO. But do they really need a full-time internal one? Our CTO as a service offering helps to face the technical issues without the need to create a new role within an organization. External CTO can help you with:
Tech Project Management
Even the best technical team won’t manage itself. An external CTO can take care of setting long-term technical goals and choosing the right tech stack for the project. Such a person keeps track of the development processes providing corrections when necessary.
Tech Team Building
An external CTO service is perfect at the tech team building stage. A person with technical leadership experience understands the needs of the company. They know how to recruit specialists to create the perfect team matrix for the challenges ahead.
Scaling Tech Products
Scaling tech products is easy with the right professional on board. The right external CTO not only has the technical knowledge but is also familiar with the industry market trends. Combining those two areas of expertise they can provide you with a well-planned complete scaling strategy.
Consulting & Advisory
An external CTO does not have to take care of day-to-day management. They can be hired to provide CTO consulting services. An experienced CTO brings a new perspective to the table, thus positively influencing architectural and technical decisions.
We advise not only on the choice of technology but also business issues and strategies related to software development.
Let’s make a short phone or video call, listen to your needs, and advise the best solutions.
CTO as a Service - The Benefits
A chief technical officer is an essential person in every tech company. They take care of the technical aspects of the business. CTO as a service is a solution for those who appreciate the importance of the role but aren’t ready for the commitment of having an in-house CTO.
Instant Access to Knowledge and Experts
An external CTO brings the company value from day one. They come not only with a solid technical background but also with vast experience from other projects and startups they worked for. Taking advantage of such a service is like hiring a team of the best professionals on the market.
Let’s face it, hiring a full-time internal CTO translates to HR expenses. CTOs are experienced professionals, and as such, they value their work accordingly. And since the chief technology officer role is crucial for the development to go smoothly, you don’t want to hire a mediocre one just because of the budget. CTO as a service is addressing this problem.
Broad Range of Support
In young startups situation changes rapidly, and so do the CTO responsibilities. One day you need your chief technology officer to prepare a tech pitch deck, the next day, they have to be actively involved in the product development process, and later, you need their help in preparing the scaling process. Why hire a CTO who will have to switch focus when you can have a perfect CTO as a service for each task?
Having an in-house CTO means the need to budget CTO salaries. It’s like an office rent – another position on the list of long-term contracts. With an outsourced CTO, you can use CTO services when you need them and pay accordingly. You get the business support you need but without the long-term commitment.
CTO as a Service - Who is it For?
CTO as a service seems like a perfect solution for emerging companies and startups who need to be careful with their money and long-term commitments. Does it mean that the enterprise cannot benefit from this service? Absolutely not. An outsourced chief technical officer can bring value to a company of any size.
CTO as a service is a perfect solution for startups that need to focus more on the technical aspect of their business, but they cannot hire a CTO at the moment. An outsourced CTO can help them with technical issues like managing the development team, choosing the technology stack, or cooperating with outsourcing companies. Choosing CTO as a service is the best way to ensure that technical and business responsibilities are taken care of.
Enterprises can benefit from CTO advisory services. Bringing an external specialist on board within the terms of CTO as a service can allow the full-time CTO to focus on strategy rather than taking care of the current burning issues. External CTO services can also support technical employees with technical expertise or soft skills management – whichever is needed. A professional coming as CTO as a service can also perform a project audit helping with quality assurance.
