Technology Services

Responding to demand at rapid pace

Altron is a South Africa-based technology services company, established in 1965, with over 4,700 people in six countries. They provide a wide-range of industry solutions, digital business and distribution services, and support 50% of the companies in the JSE Top 100. To help staff large transformation projects, they needed access to a much greater pool of talent than available in South Africa, and so they turned to India.‍

Niche skills

We started working with Altron in October 2021. Initially we were asked to hire niche technical skillsets to join long-term projects with large banking and telecommunication clients. Our first few hires were in DevOps, PL/SQL and Ab Initio.


As client demand grew, we were asked to help scale a number of teams – we hired rapidly across DevOps and Quality Assurance. Our reputation for hiring high-quality talent then reached other departments across Altron – we expanded outside of software development, and into smart engineering.

Winning formula!

“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.

Happy people

Many of our hires have worked with Altron for over two years, becoming instrumental within their client teams. They feel very much part of the Altron organisation, and in a recent survey rated their experience at 9.7/10. Great work all round.
