About Toptal

Toptal is a global network of top 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 largest fully distributed workforce in the world.

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

Position Description

Talent Portal team is responsible for providing the best experience for our talent network who have completed our vetting process and are looking for new opportunities. Our main goal is to ensure every member of our talent network connects with clients timely to meet engagement requirements.

This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere. Due to the remote nature of this role, we are unable to provide visa sponsorship. Resumes and communication must be submitted in English.

  • As a fully-distributed company, in fact, the largest in the world, we expect you to be self-reliant, independent, product-oriented but also extremely responsive and communicative, both in written and oral forms. This set of abilities will allow you geographic and time flexibility that is very rare in other work environments.
