I am the non-technical founder of a saas startup. We are currently preselling a concept to our customers and should have our first check in hand in the early Fall. I have selected a development team that will build the product, but as a non-technical person I feel like i need someone on "my side".
I am seeking a part time/cto to assist with:
I have a robust list of features and enhancements for the product. I want to flush this out before the start of my dev project so I can communicate well with the team.
Strategic Technical Advisor
I need someone to look at my business and determine what's going to make sense from a development perspective in the short-term, longer-term.
We might be producing the right functionality, but is the code that's being produced the right product? Is this something that's scalable and extensible? Ideally, I'd like someone looking at the code on a fairly regular basis to make sure that the team is building the right thing. This is a very niche industry and I plan on keeping iT outsourced. Since I am outsourcing I will eventually need access the source code just in case I ever want to bring the project in-house.
