My name is Sergio Flores, and SAFT.Industries is my latest Tech Consulting brand. With the years, I've accumulated a wealth of experience on the startup software industry, which I am now able to offer you, as your online CTO. Together, we can work with focus and determination, to make the future happen.
15+ years of working as an independent, remote, Tech Consultant. I studied Math in college, but went working immediately on all kinds of challenging and interesting software projects. I speak Spanish, can read/write French and basic Japanese. I also know *something* about small business/startup management!
But what exactly do I mean as "online CTO" ?
It means that I will personally make the relevant technical decisions for your project and will engage independent contractors as needed to complete our agreed goals, in an unsupervised, remote, online fashion, performing the following duties:
Plan, design, budget and execute the technological solution, in order to fulfill the feature roadmap.
Conduct tech reviews
Evaluate and decide on what technologies to use and for what.
Should we Build or Buy?
Decide when to buy ready made things, and when to build them anew.
Design and implement a realistic, effective, communicable and sustainable work process for the tech area.
Exercise Tech Leadership
Evaluate, hire and assign personnel, defining incentives for the tech department.
Offer the technical perspective on the company's wide goals.
Give technical answers to the Founder, the investors, the employees and the company’s clients.
Define goals and results
Establish QA systems for the software products, as well as defining the overall technical priorities.
Evangelize for the product
Participate in events with the public, investors or clients, when appropriate.
