Technical Leadership and Guidance

The thoughtbot development team are not only senior full-stack engineers but also stellar consultants that break down technical concepts, plan scalable architecture, and bubble up recommendations and/or concerns proactively. For a business that has a technical aspect that requires management and growth, having a point person to lead the charge is required. However, hiring your first technical hire can be challenging especially without the expertise in-house. A thoughtbot fractional CTO can help you find the right first technical hires, onboard them successfully, and establish code quality and development process standards while moving your product forward in parallel.
