Put your software project on strong foundations
Experience is most valuable at the start of a project, when it may be unclear what is needed to deliver the business vision. This is also the time when your project is most likely to be under-resourced, for example before you have assembled your full engineering team.
A consulting CTO can provide guidance to help you avoid common pitfalls, to build a strong engineering team that can deliver, and to start your software project on the right track.
With our Technical Lead departing in the run up to the launch of our tightly deadlined MVP, we chose a consulting CTO that had expertise of startup environments and the proptech industry, but who could flexibly work within our existing timeline, team and budget requirements. Steve and the Solviq team have been instrumental in ensuring the project stays on track, while leading a largely junior engineering team through a number of technical challenges, ensuring the MVP will fulfil its original brief.
