Hello,
my name is Torben39yo and
i'm a startup CTO

About Me

A hands-on tech business guy with a strong technology profile and the ability to design, develop and manage software and product development, and with proven success in creating working, intuitive and compelling software. My background in the field of product design and software development has taught me an important lesson — satisfy the end-user and the business will grow.

For more than fifteen years I've been working with cloud computing (software-as-a-service). My technical experience includes at least 250K+ lines of code in commercial programming of mission critical solutions e.g. booking engines, e-commerce systems, payment solutions, invoicing, document management and much more. Greater details of my skills can be found below.

My experience also includes team management, hiring and mentoring of developers, technical leads, consultants, analysts and UX designers etc.

In a nutshell, my dual strengths are design thinking and creative imagination with a strong business sense. I hold a degree in engineering (B.Eng) from Technical University of Denmark. I also offer services in vendor selection, staff recruiting and appraisals, KPI, project estimations, IT outsourcing and hosting.

How may I assist you?

I provide professional services to:

  • Evaluate technology trends for applicability to product requirements and objectives?
  • Solve your capacity problems and thus helps to achieve important deadlines. Or help avoid permanent (expensive and cumbersome) employment?
  • Manage all the stages of software projects from concept to design through implementation and release. This includes staffing allocation, project management and documentation?
  • Increase productivity through automation, workflow streamlining, and system optimization with sound effects on scalability, job satisfaction, environmental or something else?
  • Work with your team to validate that the implemented solution meet requirements and satisfies the business needs?
  • Work with your partners across the organization to develop processes and strategies for producing new features and products that delight your customers?
  • "Clean up" the technical debt?
  • Help you comply with IT regulations or security issues?
  • Be the independent "eyes and ears", which touches on critical points in the development process or software solutions?
  • Help you raise agile awareness or act as a ProductOwner or ScrumMaster?
  • Manage your software team including staffing and performance appraisals?
  • Assure the quality of your software team by peer review, feedback and acceptance?
  • Help your software team learn something new or use knowledge in new ways?
  • Make you appear in a favorable light on the board of directors, management, employees or others?
  • Or maybe you have something else on mind?

Please do not hesitate to contact me for feedback on your idea, consulting needs or a resource estimate.
