CTO Responsibilities

Product Discovery

Most startups have bright project ideas but do not know how to implement them.

Our CTO resource helps startups and scale-ups with the discovery phase of your product, which may include such steps as:

 

  • Architecture development

  • Designing the technical solution

  • Finding the best matching tools

  • Clarification of the project goals

  • Selecting the set of features for the MVP development

  • Assessment and reduction of risks Competitors analysis

  • Choosing the optimal tech stack

Technical solutions design

Plexteq's CTO combines both deep development expertise and business knowledge. Our experts help to solve the most difficult technical issues and implement rare solutions.

  • Choose the functionality in accordance with business requirements

  • Find solutions for technical challenges

  • Find the most cost-efficient and effective technologies

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the current tech stack

  • Dealing with technical issues that the client’s team cannot solve due to lack of expertise

  • Architecture development and improvements

  • Complex integrations

Project Planning

Our CTOs are often involved to plan the development process, prioritize the features, and select the features that need the biggest focus.

This applied particularly when the project aims to scale. For example, when the number of requests grows and a system can’t already cope with them. CTO as a service can assist with the following planning aspects:

 

  • Improving the development processes

  • Prioritizing the features

  • Enhancing the architecture

  • Creating a development roadmap

  • Estimating budgets and timelines

Project scaling

Hiring

A scaling stage is when an expert becomes a must. For instance, a product can be big enough to scale but still, fail with the technical aspect of scaling. Here our CTO will help you with business analysis, evaluate the current business needs, and create a complete scaling strategy. During the scaling process, CTO can help you with:

 

  • Architectural and technical decisions

  • Finding the most cost and time-effective solutions

  • Risk-less project expansion

  • Analyzing the possible approaches

  • Cloud, hosting, and other optimizations

  • Creating an overall technical scaling strategy

When it comes to early startups, founders and a CTO often serve as recruiters and hire the future team. In the later stages, startup CTO helps human resource specialists to recruit the best matching candidates. Our CTO can advise with such recruiting aspects as:

  • Creating criteria for the technical employees

  • Evaluating the technical expertise of future employees

  • Conducting technical interviews

  • Determining the developers’ soft skills and check whether they are good team players

  • Motivating the team in case of  issues

Project audit

To maintain the high quality of the product and keep it reliable, an audit should be conducted on a regular basis. External CTO to conduct an audit has a huge perk as it allows to get an unbiased opinion.  During the project audit, a CTO can assist you with:

 

  • Evaluation of the code quality

  • Verification of whether the team works correctly

  • Project quality and functionality assessment

  • Checking the effectiveness of outsourced teams

  • Monitoring the delivery process

  • Preparing the list of recommendations on improvements
