What is CTO as a Service?

CTO as a Service, also known as outsourced CTO, is a business arrangement allowing companies to hire an experienced Chief Technology Officer on a project basis rather than employing them full-time. CTO combines technical and business responsibilities and can be used in all production or work stages, bringing significant technical value.

Discovery stage

During the discovery phase or initial stage of the project, CTO services can be used to conduct technology evaluation, feasibility analysis, create a project roadmap, and assess potential risks. Their technical knowledge will help align the business's expectations and project reality.

Technical solutions

Outsourced CTO services will come in handy when making architectural and technical decisions and implementing the necessary actions. An experienced Chief Technology Officer can provide insight into what technologies to use to make the end results more profitable and the implementation faster and more efficient.

Project planning

CTO is a person that has extensive strategic and planning experience. By building the project strategy, they can forecast potential risks, determine the range of needed resources, including roles and equipment, and describe each stage of the project development process.

Project scaling

CTO consulting services will be the most beneficial for project scaling. This includes scaling the development teams, technology upgrades, infrastructure scaling, etc. They can also highlight areas in the process that need optimization decisions to allow for future growth.

Recruitment process

While recruitment may not be the primary goal of employing a CTO as a Service, CTOs can still provide valuable thoughts on the process from the strategic and soft skills management point of view. They can assess the job market and pinpoint the development team gaps in the company.

Project audit

When the project is at its full force, on-site or virtual CTO services can help assess the progress and efficiency of the development team, align the current progress with the end results, and determine the areas for improvement.

Who needs the service?


Startups often have limited resources and may lack in-house technical talents. Such companies may not have enough time or money to hire an experienced CTO for a full position. By employing an invited CTO, they can access their extensive expertise and agile team without spending a lot of money and time needed to hire and grow a CTO.

CTO as a service for startups allows beginner companies to focus solely on developing and producing their product without losing the startup share. With CTO consulting services, startups can strategically plan their development during each stage and optimize underperforming areas.


Similarly to startups, small and mid-sized businesses can largely benefit from using fractional CTO services. Such companies already have a basic structure, roles division, as well as product and project management experience. At this point, an experienced CTO can conduct the project audit to highlight the areas that may use improvement. They can pinpoint the optimization options and suggest ways for their implementation.

They can also help with high-tier issues like strategic planning for future development or creating a roadmap for business scaling. CTOs’ expertise allows them to access the market needs and conditions and align them with the business objectives to adjust them. This ensures that the company continues to develop and that its products/services are in demand.

CTO as a Service: The benefits

Retaining focus

With CTO as a Service, businesses can focus on their main area of activity that generates money and leave the high-tier issues like technical planning and road mapping, technology partnerships, and data management to the professional.


CTO as a Service allows businesses to receive a comprehensive technical solution without extra expenditures or losing share in the startup.


CTO as a Service can be one person or include a whole team of specialists. So startups and SMBs can get access to their extensive expertise without spending their money and time on hiring their own CTO.

What is CTO as a service for startups?

CTO as a Service for startups allows hiring an experienced CTO on a project basis instead of hiring a full-time specialist or growing one inside the team of technical employees. CTO takes on all technical aspects of the project and oversees the software development process.

What are the benefits of CTO as a service?

First and foremost, an external CTO service allows businesses to get access to extensive experience to solve strategic and current issues within the company. CTO can provide insights into the development processes and consult on improving them.

What is virtual CTO as a service?

A virtual CTO provides their CTO services on an outsourced basis. It allows businesses to avoid hiring a full-time specialist and only use the services of the CTO when needed.

What are the benefits of a virtual CTO?

The first and obvious benefit is that it's a cost-effective solution. A virtual CTO brings their tech expertise, management experience, and unique insights that can be applied to any area of the business operation. It is especially beneficial for SMBs and startups that want to access additional technical expertise but maintain control.

What are the two types of CTO?

Generally, CTOs can be divided into two types – in-house CTOs and outsourced CTOs (CTO as a Service). The first one is a full-time executive overseeing the whole operation process technology-wise, while the other one is a paid professional with wide experience working on a project basis.

What does a fractional CTO do?

A fractional CTO’s work depends highly on the project and its objectives. They can be employed for tasks including strategic planning, scaling, consulting, technology implementation, etc.
