I'm in the process of starting up a software development company. I have a passion for anything 'IT' but unfortunately I have no programming experience. The company will be receiving most of its order online and from referrals and these will vary from small programming jobs, business applications to designing websites and web apps. I need someone who will be able to structure the company, hire key staff members and manage the projects/orders. As I see it, I will forward the CSA an order, they will then determine which direction should be taken by programmers/designers, delegate the work to appropriate staff members and as well as consistent reviewing of staff members and their output they should provide quality assurance. I.e. the end product meets and if achievable exceeds the customer’s requirements.
Now, I’m under the impression the CSA would fit this role. Am I right? If not, who?
What should I write in the job description of a job posting?
Of course I do not need at this point a CSA who would not find it difficult to land a job as one at Microsoft or the like.
How skilled a programmer/engineer do I need to fit this role that would do well for my company?
Any feedback is welcome.
P.S. Mod, if there is a better area for this thread to be in, please move it there. Thanks.
