As a fractional CTO, my role is to provide technical expertise and support to businesses that require temporary assistance with their technology-related goals.
My day-to-day work involves solving complex problems, making strategic decisions, and leading development teams to bring innovative ideas to life.
Common Assignments I Do as a Fractional CTO
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.
