CTO as a Service?

What is that? Most often start-ups and scale-ups do not have the budgets to hire a professional CTO or IT manager. The CTO as a Service service I offer can help start-ups move quickly!

Pragmatic online strategy

You have a cool idea and want to get started right away. You are looking for someone who can help move forward, who checks whether it is feasible. Someone who helps to take the first steps. Someone who knows IT. A pragmatic partner, who is critical. But who can also make a quick-and-dirty prototype or MVP with which you can approach your investors.

IT for non-technical professionals

Have you ever done anything on the internet before? Then you know: you don't get what you asked for. IT people don't understand you or they just go their own way. You constantly wonder where the big budgets go. Everything takes far too long. You are looking for someone who knows how the business works and ensures that results are achieved.

Why cooperate with Deniz?

My name is Deniz Tezcan. As a Full Stack developer I am not only specialized in how things work under the hood, but also in whether something works for a user and looks good. With over 8 years of experience with Internet, Mobile APPs and since a few years IoT solutions, I know better than anyone what your chance of success is. For several start-ups and scale-ups I am currently taking on the role of CTO or IT manager. One day when I woke up, I thought: why can only someone employed take up this position? After this I started my first freelance CTO as a Service job. I liked this so much that I started to make a product out of it.

Cowboy Proof of Concept

Sometimes there is a need for very fast pragmatic prototypes. Build in a few days. To initiate change, because IT projects and / or organizations are "stuck". Or simply because you have an idea and want to test it. Hands-on.

Scaling & Performance

You have a technical solution that reach the end of their lifes. Your IT department does not know what to do. What now? I'll do some tests to see if it is necessary to create a new solution or scale up the current app with some smart fixes.

GDPR compliance

The GDPR (AVG) is everywhere. Every company simply has to comply with this. It is often not as difficult as most people think. But it is essential that this is thought of during the development process to avoid expensive mistakes.

Team hiring

One of the trickiest parts of having a start-up or scale-up is building an IT team to develop your product. The fees of recruiters and head hunters are crazy. Developers are made horny with salaries they are usually not worth.

How does Deniz Tezcan work?


Introduction & Research

One of the most important but underrated steps. By listening carefully and gathering information, I can offer the solutions that best suit your company. Face-to-face works best, but via Skype or Hangouts e-Meeting is also fine. Before the interview, I ask you to fill in a questionnaire, so I can understand what your company needs even more quickly. After this I will conduct a short research to check the feasibility of your project.

Kennismaken & onderzoek

Think phase

In this phase, we will consider how to give the user the easiest possible process. Giving the user the information he/she is looking for is the basis of every project. After we've gone through the click paths and wireframes we'll come up with a design. I can make this design (or have it made) or you can provide a design yourself. Next, we will check if everything that is required has been incorporated in the designs in one session.


Development & Testing

It's time to code! This is the technical phase, where all hours of thinking, brainstorming and wireframing will come into its own. In this phase, functionalities are delivered in sprints of about 1 to 2 weeks. These will first be tested by me and then I will ask you to test them again. After an MVP is delivered, we schedule a session to test the entire application together from the very beginning.

Bouw & testen

Go live & Support

The best part. After the test phase, the application is delivered and moved from the test environment to the final location. I'm going to teach you how to use your application and update the content and images. Now we're done, aren't we? No - a software process is never finished. Because the world and technology keeps evolving, the applications have to change along with it. Otherwise you run the risk of your application losing its value.
