I'm a passionate full-stack PHP and Laravel developer from the south of France with +10 years of experience.
I write on my blog about web development in general, with an emphasis on Laravel.
I'm also active in the Laravel community on Twitter.
CTO stands for Chief Technology Officer, and is responsible for the overall technology strategy of a company.
A CTO plays a key role in shaping the direction and success of a business.
Their job is to make sure that the technology used by a company is in line with its goals and objectives. They work closely with other members of the executive team, such as the CEO and CFO, to develop and implement technology-related plans and policies.
Some of the key responsibilities of a CTO may include:
An on-demand virtual CTO should have a strong understanding of the technology industry and the latest trends and innovations.
They should also have excellent leadership and communication skills, as they will need to be ready work with a variety of teams within any company.
By hiring your on-demand virtual CTO (me), you can benefit from the expertise and experience of a seasoned professional without the commitment of a full-time hire.
I can work with your team on an ongoing or project basis.
You should hire a CTO when you have critical and technological decisions to make.
This will allow you to minimize technical debt over time due to inexperienced developers calling the shots.
You might also need one when your business needs to scale. He should be able to audit your codebase and help you choose the most appropriate plan of action.
