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.

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

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.
