Toptal in the press
“Despite accelerating demand for coders, Toptal prides itself on almost Ivy League-level vetting.”
Selina Wang

Steven Norton
Testimonials
“My experience with Toptal has exceeded expectations. I needed to quickly find a front-end developer, and the first person they recommended was a perfect fit. A month later, I needed an iOS developer and they delivered again. I'm incredibly impressed with the quality of the people in Toptal's network and how quickly I was able to find a match for my needs.”
Bruno De Martino
Head of Product @ Token
“As a small company with limited resources we can't afford to make expensive mistakes. Toptal provided us with an experienced programmer who was able to hit the ground running and begin contributing immediately. It has been a great experience and one we'd repeat again in a heartbeat.”
Stuart Pocknee
Principal @ Site Specific Software Solutions
“We needed a talented developer and we needed him/her very quickly. So we turned to Toptal and couldn't be happier with the results! Our Toptal freelancer has contributed extraordinary knowledge, talent, and startup experience to our team. We will continue to work with Toptal to fulfill our future talent needs.”
Lindsay Fairman
Founder & Owner @ FairTech Labs, LLC
“Tripcents wouldn't exist without Toptal. Toptal Projects enabled us to rapidly develop our foundation with a product manager, lead developer, and senior designer. In just over 60 days we went from concept to Alpha. The speed, knowledge, expertise, and flexibility is second to none. The Toptal team were as part of tripcents as any in-house team member of tripcents. They contributed and took ownership of the development just like everyone else. We will continue to use Toptal. As a start up, they are our secret weapon.”
Brantley Pace
CEO & Co-Founder @ Tripcents
“Our experience with Toptal was very good. We had an open ended development project when we got started and the programmer from Toptal was very helpful, working with us on everything from the top level outline all the way down to development and delivery of functioning code." ”
Michael Milton
VP of Engineering @ SLANTRANGE
“We really enjoy working with Toptal. The experience has been very positive, and we'd recommend it to anyone seeking developers on-demand.”
Jeff Kerr
CEO @ CaseFleet
“We struggled for weeks to find a developer or architect with expertise in a niche API, but to no avail. When we linked up with Toptal, they connected us with the very expert we needed, and a week later we were hard at work making progress! The whole process was very smooth and we ended up with a new feature we couldn't have done without Toptal.”
Thomas Honeyman
COO @ FindMySong
“Toptal has been extremely helpful to us in finding top remote talent. The ratio from interview to hire with Toptal candidates is the highest I've ever experienced in my professional career.”
Philipp Berner
Co-founder and CTO @ KeepSafe
“I can't say enough about how happy and confident I am in working with Enrique. He brings an enthusiasm to his profession that is very refreshing, constantly surprising us with his depth of knowledge and his capability to not only complete the task, but to surpass our expectations. He presents us with solutions that we would not have thought about ourselves, and sees the problem better than we can explain it.”
Chad Berryman
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“To take advantage of Toptal's capabilities, we actually remodeled the way we do our work. We develop pseudo code with some code fragments that we send to our Toptal developer, who has a specific task set. The work is then further processed by the next group of Toptal engineers. It's been very efficient and we've seen a massive improvement in our development speed.”
William North
CTO & Co-Founder @ Swizly
“We recently launched our app with the help of Toptal and Nikola, an iOS developer. I was immediately impressed with the constant communication, detail, and level of talent that Nikola brought to the table. More importantly, when the project was underway, Nikola proactively provided creative workarounds for unforeseen hurdles and challenges. I couldn't be happier with our engagement and would highly recommend Nikola and Toptal.”
Chip O'Toole
Founder @ Humans Helping Robots LLC
“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
“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!”
