About Services

CTO as a service is an alternative to hiring a full-time Chief Technical Officer in-house. This is a low-cost option for game development studios that don't require a full-time technical expert on the team or aren't ready to hire more people. Even if you have a large studio, hiring an external CTO can be beneficial. For example, if you need to evaluate new technologies and want an unbiased opinion, you could use CTO services. Virtual CTO services are also far more flexible to use because you don't have to spend months looking for the perfect candidate, hiring outsourcing agencies, and paying upfront fees for work that hasn't even begun. Furthermore, you can select a professional with relevant skills and experience in game development: someone who understands the specifics of the platforms and genres for which you create your games, as well as how to stand out in a specific niche.

    Our CTO consulting services enable you to select the most appropriate collaboration model and communication channels for your needs. You can also change the level of involvement in your game development projects, giving you complete control.
  • Cost-effectiveness
    We operate on a "pay-as-you-go" basis. As a result, there is no need to be concerned about sick leave, hiring costs, bonuses, or holidays. It's also less expensive than hiring a full-time CTO because you don't have to pay outrageous monthly salaries or make any long-term commitments.
  • Instant availability
    There is no need to spend months looking for a suitable CTO position. You can begin working with a new Chief Technical Officer in about a week, thanks to us.
  • The executive level of professionalism
    Many game development studios cannot immediately afford to hire an experienced CTO. Choosing an external CTO, on the other hand, can help you keep your budget in check while also providing professional advice at a lower cost.
