Episode Summary:

Oshri Cohen, from RedCorner, joins the show to discuss his journey as a fractional CTO and his experience in the world of software development and technical recruiting. Cohen's story begins in his early teens, where he first dabbled in software development by combating illegal activities on the internet. This foray into technology led him to start a business in high school, pirating games and software. Self-taught in software development, Cohen faced challenges entering the professional world without a university degree but eventually worked for several companies, including developing a precursor to a major website and a successful payment processing system.

However, Cohen found that traditional roles in startups often didn't last long due to various reasons, including management conflicts and ethical disagreements. These experiences, combined with the realization that employers often don't value their employees as they should, led him to embrace the fractional CTO model. He recognized that a CTO's role in a startup changes drastically as the company grows, making it unrealistic for one person to fulfill all these roles effectively. By adopting this model, Cohen provides valuable and efficient technical leadership to multiple companies simultaneously, proving the model's success with rapid business growth and high demand for his services.
