Karl Schmidt - Fractional CTO

Does your iOS app have a performance problem?

Your app feels slow, sluggish, or stuttery. It’s no longer the smooth and fast experience it once was. Your engineering team is stuck. You’re worried that as you put more data into your system, performance is only going to get worse.

Instead, what if it was silky smooth?

Your app is back to feeling fast. Your team has a plan to keep it that way even with many more users. They feel confident in their ability to solve new performance challenges as they come up. You are confident in your team and can concentrate on other areas of your business.

Feedback from past clients:

Ubiq - social media app with a unique real-time map view

“That was great.

Jose thought the time was both really useful and enjoyable. I thought about how little I know.”

– Platon Levitski, Founder & CEO

Carson - an engineer I hired and managed at Gasket Games

“I was able to approach Karl with nearly any problem and he was able to talk it through well. Even if he wasn’t particularly well versed in that subject, his problem solving skills more than made up for it.”

– Carson Whitlock, Lead Programmer

Shawn - Former Director of Engineering at Mobify

“Karl was one of the most capable engineers I’ve worked with, he was able to work backwards from any outcome needed and come back with a solution, no matter what area of the stack.”
