What CTO as a Service expertise do you need?

Strategy and architecture

Our skilled CTOs create a scalable tech strategy for long-term project objectives. From the product roadmap and architecture to the technology stack and team composition, we will consult you and use our collective experience to define the foundations in the right way.

Engineering

When technology becomes a bottleneck from the scalability, security or further product evolution perspective, we can help to redesign, refactor and modernize the existing solution and get back on track. Our experts will analyze the opportunities and risks.

Cost optimisation

Technology expenses can quickly go high. Wrong decisions can easily result in project failure, significant delay or a blown budget. A severely competitive environment can make it even more difficult to turn your business vision into an efficient tech solution. Expert CTOs will get the budget under control.

Advisory, team and project management

We offer CTO advisory on the matters of architecture, strategy, organization and processes. We can help you with growing and leading the development team, aligning workflow with other departments and maximizing the team’s knowledge and industry expertise to achieve better results.

Have questions about CTO as a Service?

arrowWhat is a CTO as a Service?

CTO as a service(CaaS) stands for the business advisory and technical implementation services provided by a Chief Technology Officer for a startup. A CTO is an executive that meets a startup’s technical needs and also coordinates its research and development. He or she assesses both the short and long-term requirements of your business and leverages investment to enable your startup to achieve its objective. The CTO reports to the Chief Information Officer (CIO), and in some cases, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or the founder. Companies that don’t have a CTO or lack the knowledge of how to hire one can outsource the advisory and responsibilities of a CTO to an external expert. While the concept of CTO as a service might still be new, it is fast gaining momentum.

arrowWhat are the types of CTO services?

CTO types depend on the functions and the collaboration you expect from a CTO. Complex and technical functions will require a full-time, in-house CTO while consulting and advisory services can necessitate hiring a part-time, external CTO.

arrowWhat is the CTO responsible for?

The CTO responsibilities vary from company to company as all the companies have varying goals. However, in a Scrum team, CTO has clearly defined responsibilities and goals:

  1. Validating business idea – In the initial, pre-seed stage, when startups are building the product prototype, the CTO often works with UX designers and gives the technical assistance throughout the process. CTO also works with the engineering team to ensure the most reliable development practices for developing the core product. The role of the CTO can also be to evaluate the effectiveness of the current tech stack, choose and select the most cost-efficient and effective tech stack, and plan integrations with external services
  2. Project planning – External CTO can help you with improving the development processes and project outputs by creating a development roadmap and prioritizing the features and estimating budgets and timelines. 
  3. Project audit – The external CTO will have an unbiased perspective about your business performance. He/she can assess code quality, verify team productivity, project quality and assessment of functionality, evaluate the effectiveness of the remote team, and recommend improvements. 
  4. Project scaling – An experienced CTO will help to enable better scaling by setting clear boundaries, help you with hiring dynamic software engineers who will enable you to move fast and help you nurture software development leaders within your organization. 
  5. Project pitch – The CTO can help with preparing a tech pitch deck, explaining the technical value of your idea or product to investors, providing answers to any technical questions asked by investors, proving that the team possesses technical capabilities and deep expertise.
