About Toptal

Toptal is a global network of top freelance talent in business, design, and technology that enables companies to scale their teams, on-demand. With $200+ million in annual revenue and over 40% year-over-year growth, Toptal is the world’s largest fully remote company.

We take the best elements of virtual teams and combine them with a support structure that encourages innovation, social interaction, and fun. We see no borders, move at a fast pace, and are never afraid to break the mold.

Position Description

Toptal is an exclusive network of the top freelance software developers, UX designers, business experts, product managers, and project managers in the world.

Our Enterprise team focuses on establishing and growing relationships with the world’s largest and most innovative companies - including the Fortune 50. Enterprise clients demand purpose-built solutions to compete in the intense war for talent. Toptal is an alternative to outdated and inflexible traditional staffing providers and overpriced Big Consulting. Our Client Partners work closely with clients to design and implement fit-to-purpose talent solutions and scope engagements comprising individual experts, teams of experts, or fully managed teams.

As an Enterprise Client Partner you will be the face of Toptal to some of the most prominent enterprise companies in the world. If you have a track record of serving as a trusted client advisor while driving substantial revenue growth – this role is for you.

This is a remote position. However, we require applicants to reside in-market. We are unable to provide visa sponsorship. Resumes and communication must be submitted in English.

Responsibilities:

  • Revenue - Client Partners deliver significant Quarter-Over-Quarter and Year-Over-Year revenue growth. They are accountable for all aspects of key accounts, including account expansion, client retention, and client experience. CPs deliver sustainable and profitable growth with an eye toward exceeding aggressive, hypergrowth revenue targets.
  • Leadership - Client Partners lead by example and demonstrate integrity. They collaborate across teams – serving as the voice of the client internally and make meaningful contributions to growing the business as a whole. CPs are expected to be the face of Toptal for clients, collaborate effectively across internal functions, and mentor and develop junior staff and new team members.
  • Consultative Selling - Client Partners engage in ongoing dialogue with clients to uncover their most pressing business challenges. They generate demand by co-developing strategies and solutions to catalyze their clients’ business performance. CPs maximize the value that Toptal provides by selling across verticals, offerings, and solutions – selling both individual expert and managed team services.
  • Account Management - Client Partners are accountable for the execution of day-to-day account management tasks, including project staffing and talent matching; drafting SOWs, providing delivery oversight and managing quality; managing invoices and accounts receivable; managing profitability at the engagement, account, and portfolio levels; and maintaining a pipeline of opportunities and data hygiene.
  • Relationship Building - Client Partners build and nurture deep, long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships with senior clients. They network extensively both externally and internally, building relationships with both influential client stakeholders and internal partners.
  • Industry knowledge - Client Partners are conversant in emerging trends and expert in fundamental aspects of the industry they serve. CPs masterfully translate megatrends like the growth of distributed talent networks and remote work into targeted client calls-to-action. They capture and leverage relevant case studies about Toptal capabilities and projects.
