CTO as a Service

With our global network of highly experienced
Chief Technology Officers on-demand we bring
the world of technology closer to you
and make it affordable

CTO Services

Three models of CTO as a Service


Part-time CTO

If you’re not ready or able to hire a permanent,
full-time CTO, we can immediately provide
the right person, for the right amount of time,
for as long as you need - and no more

Outcome as a Service

Some situations require a specific outcome,
instead of a role. It may be a critical initiative on a
transformation, acquisition, integration, or carve-out.
A force-multiplier to get more done

Fractional CTO

For technology leaders who require
an experienced partner with
complementary skills - we provide options,
being it advisory, execution or mentoring

What is CTO as a Service?

The CTO as a Service model is a highly flexible approach to technology leadership based on the pay-as-you-go model. Organisations can choose what skills they need, the responsibilities to be covered, the level of involvement, and the contract length. The level of support can be dynamically changed depending on the current business context.

It is a cost-effective alternative to recruiting a permanent Chief Technology Officer. It is ideal for ambitious start-ups who want to increase development velocity and quickly bring validated products to market and SMEs looking to enhance and optimise their technology strategies to drive growth and innovation. Larger companies can benefit from an external perspective on their current systems and future development roadmap. The CTO as a Service can include coaching and knowledge transfer for your permanent staff.

Benefits of our model

Don't hire a CTO.
Just rent.


Cost Efficiency

No hiring cost, no bonuses, no equities, no holidays or sick leaves paid. No long-term commitments. Only simple and plain pay-as-you-go contract.

Flexible Terms

We offer a few different models of engagement, and within those models, you can dynamically change the level of involvement anytime you need.

Immediate availability

It usually takes six to nine months to fulfil a CTO position. However, considering our model, we can typically start within a week.

Domain expertise

From healthcare to fintech, from insuretech to foodtech - we pick a CTO with the relevant domain expertise to maximise your odds of success.

Founders mentality

All our CTOs are founders, investors or advisors to many startups before, and they are very familiar with all the challenges of the startup journey.

Executive level

Many startups can not afford an executive-level CTO to hire; nevertheless, they need to make solid strategic decisions right from the beginning.

STRATEGY AND ARCHITECTURE

We use our collective experience to define the foundations in the right way - from the product roadmap and architecture to the technology stack and team composition - we've got your back

ENGINEERING CRAFTSMANSHIP

When technology becomes a bottleneck from the scalability, security or further product evolution perspective, we can help to redesign the existing solution and get back on track

BUDGETING AND COST OPTIMISATION

Technology expenses can quickly go high, especially with inaccurate "build or buy" decisions. Expert vendors and cloud infrastructure management will get the budget under control

GROWING AND LEADING THE TEAM

We set the bar high when it comes to technology leadership. The quality of your engineering team, processes and culture will shape the outcomes for the whole business

TECHNOLOGY DUE DILIGENCE

Our experts will analyse the opportunities and risks based on business alignment, strategy, architecture, people and processes, innovation potential, scalability and security

ADVISORY AND COACHING

We offer CTO advisory or second opinion on the matters of architecture, strategy, organisation and processes. Our advisors can empower your permanent CTO with their vision of the future and innovation.

Technologies

What technologies we used in 2020


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of software to “think”, analyse the data and make decisions. AI can emulate human behaviour to perform different tasks and improve the behaviour over time using newly available data. AI is used in healthcare, industrial sector, finance, e-commerce and many other sectors.

Internet of Things (IoT) is the data network that connects different small devices and sensors to communicate with each other. IoT data analytics have been successfully implemented in retail, healthcare, manufacturing and other sectors, significantly reducing the cost of operations and creating competitive advantage.

Machine Learning (ML) is a method of data analysis that is capable to improve automatically through experience. ML algorithms can predict future state of a system based on historical data, identify anomalies and patterns. ML is used in audit, finance, cybersecurity, e-commerce and many other sectors.

Robotics process automation (RPA) is a form of business process automation technology based on metaphorical software robots or digital workers. Those robots can use another software like humans to perform various tasks. RPA can be used in accounting, finance, insurance, legal and other businesses.

Our Approach

working together to achieve great results


Intro Call

We will schedule a video call with you to understand your business context and technology challenges. Together we will decide on an appropriate engagement model for one of our CTO partners after exploring the pros and cons. At this point, we would also ask about any preferences in terms of culture fit.

Analysis and Estimation

Once we understand the context and challenges ahead, we will get together our CTO panel to understand who would be the best positioned to take the role based on domain knowledge, skillset and relevant experience. Also, we will broadly discuss "the plan of attack", and then the appointed CTO partner will work on the detailed estimation.

Contract, Engagement and Feedback loops

Once we agree on the scope of work, engagement model and particular CTO candidature, our legal department will do the necessary paperwork, and the engagement will start. You will define the ways of working and reporting lines with your selected CTO based on your unique context and challenges. Our CTO partners and management team are always open to adjusting the initial plan if needed to maximise the value for your business.

Review and Handover

Once the engagement ends, we will review the outcomes and provide final recommendations for the next steps. The complete handover process will include responsibilities, documentation, contacts and anything else you might require to continue without us. Your CTO will be available for ad-hoc consultations and support for the next six months after the engagement ends.
