Establish key partnerships for the business in terms of product and engineering around third-party integrations, non-core elements of the product or outsourced team capabilities;

CTO for startups
I distribute 10% of profits to the social impact project Spiring.no which help ex-addicts into the work force through growing microgreens for restaurants in Oslo, Norway.
Fractional CTO hourly rate is $250 per hour and engagements can be priced in ways that meet your use-cases :
- a monthly retainer
- agreed scope and cost
- ad-hoc hourly consulting
For exceptional opportunities, I am open to providing services in return for equity
Market rates for full-time startup CTOs are in the range $350-500k/year; you can access my experience for less than that, on a fractional basis
My goals are for you to see a noticeable return on your investment, to build a relationship for the long-term, and to be flexible to both your budget and scope to reach growth for startups.
Turn a fixed cost into variable
Searching, vetting and hiring a right CTO is an expensive and delicate process. Don’t risk leaving your team without a reliable leader that will ensure your deliverables are on track. When you’ve hired a CTO we do a graceful transition and hand-off to the new CTO or we transition to being an advisor to your CTO.
What people say about us
In his work at EatSleepRIDE, Alfa has had an incredibly positive impact. His leadership and creativity have helped us reimagine multiple processes, most notably in Software Delivery.
I would heartily recommend Alfa to anyone in need of change management: He always seems to find both creative solutions and the best way to implement them, and he does this with a sensitivity to the needs of both the business and the team.
Alex Crookes - Co-founder EatSleepRide
As a manager, he would never ask something of you that he wouldn't do himself first. He always lead by example. He is relentless in his march towards ridiculously hard to get goals. He's also a very creative problem solver, he always has a billion ideas in his pocket to toss around. I would work with Alfa any given day. He's certainly one the most inspirational managers around.
Venkatakrishnan Ganesh - Founder LivePinch
Alfa is one of the managers who has deep and broad technical knowledge and can transform business needs to technical requirements. Working on a few projects under his supervision I was always impressed by his capability to see opportunities for business. Alfa is highly recommended and if I get invitation, I will definitely consider joining his team again
