How many engineering hours does it take to build a company with a $5M annual run rate, in the space of a year? Through the fractional hiring platform I’ve learned it can be as little as 11 hours per week. That’s about 25% of the cost of a traditional 40 hour/week full-time hire. With remote collaboration quickly becoming the new normal, the future of work is shifting again as companies choose to hire only for what they’ll actually need. The flexibility from scaling specialized skills as needed can lower burn rates and shift fixed costs to variable ones, but it requires new ways of management, collaboration, and budgeting -- and thinking through what roles make sense for fractional hiring and which do not. Vlad Lokshin, co-founder of Turtle, will discuss best practices for hiring fractionally to drive efficient growth for your startup.
