Three reason you need a CTO and jobs postings from CFP Bots, Auluxa, DigixGlobal, Fundnel, and Green Koncepts
Some startups, especially the less technical ones, do away with having a CTO especially if the founder or one of the founders have a tech background. Some prefer founding a business with a CTO to ensure it that both product and business development begin at the same time. And some would only require a CTO at later stages of the life of the company.
But how will you know if your startup needs a CTO?
1. If you’re building a high-tech product that relies heavily on one’s knowledge of current trends and ability to strategise the product development based on emerging technologies
2. If your team has expanded to accommodate for product expansions
3. If your product expansions require someone with an eye on the big picture to make sure that there is still cohesion
