Octaria Software Development is launching split product management service offerings to help Texas startups and entrepreneurs efficiently build new software applications.
Octaria offers two new services. Experienced Product Managers are available for 5, 10 or 20 hours/week, allowing startups to access senior talent for as little as 1/8th the cost of a senior employee. Separately, flat-rate Product Design Sprints are available to prototype a new software product design in a matter of weeks.
The Product Manager breaks down raw business requirements into clear, achievable tasks for a team of engineers and often meets with potential customers to better understand customer needs. Product managers play a critical role in guiding the engineering team and also in identifying the total addressable market, pricing strategy, and feature lists for a minimum viable product.

“Many startup founders look for a CTO or Senior Software Engineer when they really need a Product Manager,” said Greg Micek, CEO/Founder of Octaria.
“As a contract CTO for a new client, I typically spend the vast majority of my time playing product manager.”
