Testimonials
“Getting set up with Toptal and finding a new team member was so easy, I don't know why anyone wouldn't give it a try. Best of all, we no longer have to worry about finding great people to help with our projects!”
Mike Branch
President & CTO @ Harbor System Integrators, Inc
“Darko did a great job figuring out the user architecture for our concept, which led him to produce terrific wireframes. His knowledge of usability and design was a perfect match for the outside voice we needed to help jumpstart our project. We would certainly recommend him and work with him again in the future.”
Rich Danker
Founder @ Prose Market
“Toptal has helped my business tremendously by finding, vetting, and recruiting the talent I need, at the right time. I’d definitely recommend it to others.”
Xavier Xicay
CEO & Creative Director @ Tuatara Corp
“We had an amazing experience working with our Toptal designer. In only two weeks, we accomplished what would've taken most companies 3 months to complete. We also enjoyed working with the Toptal team to make sure we were paired up with the right designer that would fit both our company culture and working style.”
Ted Blosser
Head of Sales and Customer Success @ WorkRamp
“Michael is an incredible designer, and has been a great fit for our project. He just gets it in a way that can’t be taught. My goal was to pay Toptal to find me a high quality designer for my project, and that is exactly what happened. It was easy. Being able to see the portfolio work on Toptal’s platform is what gave me the infomation I needed to choose Michael. I have nothing but good things to say about Toptal and am looking forward to using Toptal for other projects in the future.”
Edward Daniel
Co-Founder @ improvemygun.com
“What attracted us to Toptal was that Toptal is sourcing its talent from a global pool. The selection process is very stringent. They’re sourcing the talent not only based on capabilities -- sourcing the best 3% -- but also based on cultural fit, which is really important to us. We had an amazing experience working with Toptal. Toptal helped us achieve our goals by bringing us very high-quality resources, on very short notice.”
Elmar Platzer
Digital Transformation Leader, CSR Australia @ CSR Limited
“Dean blew us away. He ranks right up there as one of the top five designers of the hundreds I have worked with in the past. He listened, was totally professional, and came up with a 3D rotating cube design completely on his own. We didn't even ask for it, and yet it has become the centerpiece of our app and how users engage with it right off the bat. What he produced inspired all of us at Votify, and put us on track for launch and investor funding.”
Michael Lawrence
Founder & CEO @ Votify LLC
“The best talent is at Toptal for sure. It's way better and faster than any other means of getting top talent.”
Rajesh Nagarajan
Co-Founder & CTO @ maxmantra
“I've worked very closely with Martina for over a year and have to say she is one of the best people I have ever worked with. Instead of simply following instructions blindly, she thinks through the task at hand, becoming a thought partner to help with whatever the project may be. Besides being super talented at design, she possesses specific qualities that make her exceptional to work with given the fast paced nature of being a startup. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, professional designer who doesn't need much direction to hit the ground running.”

Mac Smith
President @ New Texas Investments
“One of our most time consuming problems is finding qualified staff. We need to find the correct platform to advertise on, create a proper ad, filter through tons of applications, interview and test the applicants' capabilities, and finally take a risk by hiring. This was the old way of doing things. The new way: describe the job position to our Toptal account manager, interview a few qualified applicants, and hire with a risk-free trial -- much faster, a lot easier, and with incredible results.”
Catalin S. Balaci
Owner @ EvoBits Information Technology SRL
“We had a wonderful experience with our Toptal consultant. He was very reliable and punctual, delivering excellent work on a budget—we will certainly be using him again!”
