Software House Bratislava
We came into existence during the hot summer of 2009. After more than ten years on the market, we are a well established, upstanding Slovak software house that has over the period built a professional team, brand image, and a wide portfolio of references from various fields. Altamira carries out mostly custom development of software, mobile apps, and custom web solutions of virtually any extent. In addition to Slovakia, we focus largely on the market of German-speaking countries.
Where do we operate?
26 % of the company turnover is generated in Austria, where we have our branch office. 24 % is generated in the Czech Republic, 37 % Slovakia and the rest of the pie is made in Switzerland, Germany, and the USA.
WHO ARE OUR CLIENTS?
35 % of the turnover is from the field of the pharmaceutical industry. 19 % is from media, 16 % finance, 10 % public projects, environment, and other fields complete the pie.
Companies depend on people. We prefer long-term good relations and minimum labor turnover. This increases the quality of our deliverables because our people have information and know the projects which we run in detail. We are a small company working in a small team, but on big projects.
We work in an environment without strictly defined hierarchies. Such are built naturally, making the team more consistent and capable of autonomous cooperation.
QUID PRO QUO
FREEDOM VS. RESPONSIBILITY
Freedom of attendance, decision-making, working hours are compensated by the required level of responsibility for outputs of employees.
TO CLIENTS AND EMPLOYEES
We develop by using agile methodology and thus being in regular contact with the client during the development. We practice agility also inwards and communicate with each other transparently.
We apply agile methodology of development, but we are not pushing it. Planing precisely, but taking into account that during project development the plan may change. Our team is more than familiar with the nuances of software development.
Senior developers form a cornerstone of our team. We also help to educate the younger generation, while keeping juniors working on client projects only under the direct supervision of a senior.

The year 2019 represented a major change in the organization of our work. We introduce internal processes to increase the quality of our outputs, new management positions are opened allowing us to operate with better organization and even more professional. From the technical point of view, we focus more on React Native, develop a variety of web applications, even in exotic destinations such as Qatar, and further establish our position on the Slovak market.
In 2017 we started to focus on foreign markets and, in particular, on the Austrian market. In addition to laying foundations of our Austrian branch, the year 2017 saw the acquisition of one of the publicly most recognized clients of Altamira - Slovak National Theater.
We established a successful cooperation with a Prague – based company CEEOR, which was recently acquired by an American investment giant WPP, and renamed to Kantar Health, is a company, which provides mainly pharmaceutical research. The key product of the company is software for promotion monitoring, which we’ve been developing since 2014.
In late 2015 we started to focus on public procurements, and were able to win many of them. The most important and most interesting is an application which is used by police officers, working on a department focusing on preventing extremism and violence manifestations online.
