The Stoic CTO

a biweekly newsletter on tech startups with a hint of philosophy

Hi there, thanks for your interest in my newsletter. I caught the startup bug towards the end of my computer science degree in 2015. Since graduating, I have worked at various early stage FinTech startups and SaaS businesses.

In April 2019, I quit my software engineering job to build an eCommerce logistics startup full-time.

Don't let the title “CTO” confuse you. I am simply a hands-on technical founder; part of a nimble yet effective development team.

In this newsletter, I will be sharing my struggles and learnings as a first-time founder. Topics will include development methodologies, software architecture and organizing development teams. I might occasionally write about product development, sales and marketing as well.

I will be writing for a technical audience in mind, developers primarily. However anyone interested in tech startups might find valuable insights in this newsletter.

If this sounds interesting, you can join me on this journey by subscribing below. And don't worry I hate spam as much as you do, so strictly one email every 2 weeks. No ads, no data sharing, no bullshit.

Let's do this.
