Job Overview and Responsibility

The CTO's primary job is to make sure the company's technology strategy serves its business strategy. Technology selection and technical design: Uiza core principle is a combination of a infrastructure-agnostic platform and a data science-based network and system controller plane, which was hidden behind a simplified API and SDK. The whole business strategy is creating a simple to use video API for developers but it coupled tightly with unlimited scalability with a much affordable cost especially in emerging markets that don’t have footprint of AWS or GCP. As a CTO, you will drive our technology stack to make sure our plan viable. Seeing the big picture (in graphic detail): You should be the person in the room who can keep everything your technology can and can't do in your head. That means knowing what's written and what's not, what the architecture can and can't support, and how long it would take to build something new. That's more than just drawing architecture diagrams, though. Being able to see the macro and micro matters most. Provide options and find 80/20: You never say "that's impossible" or "we'd never do that." Instead, you find options and can communicate them to everyone in the company. You will be the person in the room who can digest the needs of the new (proposed) business, and lay out the costs and effort of each possible approach. As a CTO, once you understood what the objective of their feature was for customers, you could see a way to get 80% of the benefit for 20% of the cost. Like, “We don’t need to build an entire new feature, this could be done by tweaking a current feature a bit.” Grow technical leaders: Designating some engineers as "Technical Leads" and delegating to them the work of guiding the technical direction of more and more projects. This is the only way to scale. By delegating and training, we create a corps of leaders who could step in to provide CTO-like services on demand. And by working together, we created a team whose whole was greater than the sum of its parts. Own the development methodology: You would be responsible for making sure the engineers wrote adequate specs, interfaced well with QA, and also run the scheduling "trains" for releases. At a minimum, the CTO and Tech Leads that have to be responsible for five why's-style root cause analysis of defects. Otherwise, how can we find out what our blind spots are and make sure the team and the architecture is adjusting?
