High Performing Teams

On shore, on budget, on site or fully remote.

BlackCat builds, nurtures and develops highly functioning technology teams who deliver at pace. Then we make all that knowledge and experience available to you in our flexible engagement model.

  • You need additional capacity and can't recruit quickly enough
  • You need access to specific technical skills and can't get the headcount to recruit.
  • You are suffering from employee churn in a highly competitive market

How we help

Scaling up quickly or finding the right level of specialist expertise can be the biggest barrier to winning the race to innovate.  BlackCat provides the skills and capacity to accelerate your product development and increase your ability to innovate.

How we do this depends entirely on you and your needs. We can supply entire teams, own entire projects or embed individuals within your in-house team.

We pride ourselves on being sensitive and adaptive to organisational culture and have the experience to push your teams on to deliver sprint after sprint.
