Through my years of experience, I have noticed that there are a few common assignments that keep popping up.

In this article, I'll be sharing my five most frequent assignments so that you'll better a better idea of what a Fractional CTO usually does.

1. Transitioning From Outsourcing to an In-house Team

Many startups begin with a low budget, hiring dev shops or freelancers to build an MVP. With funding, they need help to hire the right in-house team.

2. Making Key Tech Decisions

As a Fractional CTO, I help startups decide on tech stack, select vendors, lead integrations with clients, and define underlying processes to professionalize tech operations.

3. Defining Scalable Hiring Processes

In the hyper-growth phase, I help startups define positions to be hired, source candidates, and create scalable interview and onboarding processes.

4. Setting Deterministic Software Development Processes

As a Fractional CTO, I help startups go from a scrappy MVP mindset to a ready-for-scale mindset. That includes introducing processes like CI/CD and testing to improve the speed and reliability of feature releases.

5. Finding Product-market-Fit

For early-stage startups, I help them build MVPs and iterate quickly toward finding repeatable revenue streams and then scaling them.
