Virtual CTO (vCTO)

Do you need this?

You do not require a full time CTO position within your business but have the recurring need for senior technical guidance at management level.

A vCTO may be used for a specific task or project and is much more cost effective than a full time hire. You may have very specific experience requirements or would appreciate outside perspective on technology and growth plans. You may or may not already hire technical resources within your business.

How we help

Whilst being specific to your exact business needs Slate can take a broader role encompassing overall strategy or be specific for a single project such as front-end design or cloud migration.

We can provide a single person or a vCTO service to draw on a wider gamut of experience while being delivered back to you through a central point of contact.

Why Slate?

Asking Slate to provide a vCTO to your business means not only taking advantage of our excellent techincal skills but also our top-notch communication skills.

We understand that the role of CTO can involve talking to investors, board members as well as staff inside your business. We can help make a real difference to your business to see it grow to the point where a full-time CTO might be more appropriate.

What's the cost?

The cost of hiring a full time CTO can be prohibitive but nonetheless we make our vCTO services as cost effective as possible whilst considering your exact needs.

We can get up and running very quickly and with as little friction as possible which means you get what you need, when you need it rather than paying for a senior position and having to wait months for the value to start being apparent.
