    Well then who is the chief technical officer?

    I'm interviewing for a job now that currently has only on technical person, who indeed calls himself the CTO. I'll just tell him that if he hires me he'll be a legit CTO.

    Tip: Job titles (other than the protected ones) are never proof of anything.

    I used to (jokingly) call my self CCO (Chief Customer Officer) to all our regular customers, and we were a team of 2 as well.
    It's all about inflating those titles!

    Titles are just that: titles. Especially the title of CTO has so much variations that it's pretty much meaningless in a small company.

    It can range from the guy who built and maintains the app, the back-end, the front-end, and the e-commerce website to a non-technical guy who manages a technical team and vision, with a lot of variations in between.

    I'm on the first end of the spectrum (though I don't call myself a CTO, other people do), and now a guy on the other end.

    My title used to be CTO. But we don't sell our tech. The development I'm over is all internal facing. Plus I'm also over infrastructure and support. I finally convinced them that CIO was the correct title. Not sure if that was a wise move on my part or not.
