Hi there! I’m Taylor Dondich and I help early stage startups make smart technical decisions. If you don’t have a CTO or Technical Cofounder, it’s imperative you have a technical advisor to help you. If you are a tech startup or your business has technical needs, I can help you make the best decisions for your short term and long term goals.
Technical Advisory Services
Minimum Viable Product Definition
I’ll help you discover the quickest way to deliver your great idea. From validation to target audience delivery, I’ll advise you on how to reduce the scope in order to be as effective as possible.
Platforms and Tooling
Let’s figure out the right platforms and tools your business can utilize to reduce cost of development and delivery. From development tools to analytics, I can help you decide.
Measure and Iterate
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. I’ll help you identify the key metrics that you need to prove your assumptions and grow. We’ll use these metrics to measure constant improvement and change when necessary.
Collaboration Across The Organization
It’s important to get your technical teams to communicate with your other departments effectively. I’ll help you create the processes to get all groups talking together effectively.
Growing Your Technical Teams
If you’re starting with no engineers or looking to grow your teams around the globe, I can help guide you in effective decisions when it comes to hiring or outsourcing, technical interviewing and defining employee goals.
Engineering Best Practices
I’ll inform you on the behavior and processes of successful engineering and operations teams. We’ll work on reducing human error and finding the right solutions to automation.
Building Your Culture
Toxicity in your organization can bring you to your knees. I’ll help you create a positive company culture without faking it and get your teams to be part of something bigger.
Leveraging The Cloud
I’ll guide you in utilizing the right cloud vendors to help reduce your costs and improve your global infrastructure. I’ll help you understand their services and how to reduce your cloud spend.
If it’s CAN-SPAM or GDPR or SOC 2 compliance, I can help guide you in creating an effective implementation plan to fulfill auditing requirements and make sure your business fulfills all technical obligations.
Prepare For Launch
I’ll help guide you through a successful product launch by designing your checklist and help you understand what to do when things go wrong. We’ll work through a post launch retrospective to understand how to improve and begin iterating.
Pivoting To Succeed
I’ll help you understand when you need to change product directions to adapt to a changing world or to an assumption that was proven incorrect. We’ll define processes on identifying when to pivot and how to pivot quickly.
I’ll help you define the technical requirements needed to fulfill when approaching investors. We’ll prepare for audits and increase the value of your intellectual property so we can increase your evaluation.
