Why us?

You’re a small to medium sized business. Something is driving you to build a remote team. Maybe it’s the cost of local people? A need to rapidly scale? Or you just can’t find the skills you need? Whatever it is, you need some help. Black Piano is no machine. We care about our clients and our members equally. It’s this balance that makes us different.

It's simple really...

Zero recruitment fees, ever. All employment overheads, covered. A single, small monthly fee, tiny in fact. We’re so transparent with our pricing, we’ll even show you how much margin we make…  (around £250 per hire). You literally couldn’t do it cheaper yourself.

Compensation

Your total cost includes staff compensation. This covers salary, bonus payments and other incentives to keep them motivated. Believe it or not, we even negotiate this up before we send it to you. Why? Because paying people a market leading compensation package is the right thing to do. To attract the best. And keep them.

Overheads

For every hire there are overhead costs, things such as payroll, laptops, internet connectivity, office space, holiday, sickness, maternity/paternity, the list goes on. Don't panic. We handle it all. Zero fuss.

What we make

We want to keep the total cost your new hire as low as possible for you, while passing most of it to the individual hired to work with you. But we’re also a business. We have to make a profit. We’re honest and transparent about that, so we’ll even show you how much margin we make…  (around £250 per hire).

We handle it all

Recruiters cut and dash. An Employer of Record does payroll but not much else. Your in-house HR don’t really know how to manage a remote team. That’s OK, because we’ve got it all covered. A simple, inclusive service. We find you the right candidate. We legally employ them for you. And we look after them so well, they never leave.

Our clients

Black Piano brings deep expertise in building and maintaining offshore teams with best-in-class people, processes and culture. Very quickly, they have become a fundamental part of our company and have influenced greatly our IT delivery milestones.

Fabiano, CEO

Parabellum RE

Working with Black Piano as our strategic resourcing partner has been an absolute game-changer for NFS Technology. When we embarked on the development of a completely new solution, we knew we needed a team with precisely the right skills to bring our vision to life. Black Piano stepped in seamlessly, expertly setting up a brand-new team tailored to our project's unique requirements.

Seraj, Senior Director Product

NFS Technology

With Black Piano, we have built an offshore team of dedicated and talented individuals who have completed multiple MVPs in exceptional time and quality. Black Piano deeply understand our needs, going above and beyond to connect us with the right candidates.

Charlie, Portfolio Manager

New Future Ventures

We started working with Black Piano only 6 months ago and in that time we’ve built a team of 23 performance marketing professionals. When I met Black Piano, I wanted to set up an offshore team, and I was thinking about going it alone. Give Jonathan a call, and let him and his team guide you through the process. The speed they work is exceptional, their pricing is fair and transparent, and the additional support we get is invaluable. We’re true partners!

Nathan, CEO

Make Me Local

The Black Piano partnership is reliable and efficient, and has resulted in our ability to deliver timeously to our clients. The best value in the relationship comes from the continual interaction with Jonathan and Abhishek. It is very easy to work with them as they are accommodating to our business needs during challenging situations. This has undoubtedly created a winning formula for success.

Steve, Operations Executive

Altron
