Chief Technology Officer / Senior iOS Engineer

Chief Technology Officer / Senior
iOS Engineer

As a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) who also serves as a Senior iOS Engineer, I live and breathe technology. I have a multi-faceted role that combines strategic oversight, team leadership, and hands-on software development. It’s a unique blend of big-picture thinking and detailed execution, and I love every minute of it.

My days as a fractional Chief Technology Officer are split between different organizations. This means I lend my expertise to multiple companies, typically startups and small businesses, on a part-time basis. It’s a fascinating challenge, and no two days are the same. Each company has its own set of technical hurdles to overcome, and it’s my job to help them navigate these complexities. It requires a high level of adaptability and a wide range of technical and business acumen.

The chief technology officer role I fulfill involves creating a technology strategy that aligns with each company’s business goals. I work closely with other C-suite executives to ensure that our tech efforts support our broader objectives. This involves everything from making key decisions on technology investments and infrastructure, to overseeing cybersecurity efforts, to fostering innovation within the company.

In terms of chief technology officer skills, I’ve had to develop a broad and deep skillset. On the technical side, I have a strong background in iOS development, which involves working with Swift and Objective-C, understanding the Apple ecosystem, and keeping up with updates from Apple. But beyond that, I have to keep my finger on the pulse of the latest technology trends and understand how they might impact the companies I work with.

However, my role isn’t purely technical. I also need to excel at leadership, strategic thinking, and communication. I have to inspire and guide my teams, communicate effectively with other executives, and make tough decisions that balance immediate needs with long-term goals.

Overall, it’s an exhilarating experience. I love the variety that comes with being a fractional CTO and the hands-on nature of being a senior iOS engineer. It’s a role that keeps me on my toes and always learning, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
