Toptal on TV
"Toptal is killing it, it kind of owns this market."
Andrew Ross Sorkin Reviews Toptal
Cnbc 02e66b
"Tech companies simply cannot find the quality employees they want to hire. The solution: Toptal."
Liz Claman´s Review of Toptal

Toptal in the press
“Despite accelerating demand for coders, Toptal prides itself on almost Ivy League-level vetting.”
Selina Wang
“Toptal allows corporations to quickly assemble teams that have the right skills for specific projects.”
Steven Norton
Testimonials
“We have been incredibly happy with our Toptal experience. Initially a skeptic, the process to find and recruit a fabulous iOS developer was very easy. Rather than sifting through hundreds of CVs, we saw two and hired them. They have worked effectively, getting up to speed incredibly quickly and have almost become part of the team. We would definitely use Toptal again. ”
James O'Day
Co-Founder @ Pearlshare
“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
“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
“We needed a expert engineer who could start on our project immediately. Simanas exceeded our expectations with his work. Not having to interview and chase down an expert developer was an excellent time-saver and made everyone feel more comfortable with our choice to switch platforms to utilize a more robust language. Toptal made the process easy and convenient. Toptal is now the first place we look for expert-level help.”
Derek Minor
Senior VP of Web Development @ Networld Media Group
“Toptal has provided us developers for a wide range of projects. They are quick to provide candidates, and always very quick in communication. We have been happy with the quality of work from the developers as well as the Toptal representatives. Highly recommend!”
Gena Romano
Vice President of Digital @ VOX Global
“Toptal developers deliver. Hiring my first developer on Toptal was such a pleasant experience that I quickly turned around and hired another. Every developer I've hired on Toptal has been professional, skilled, and self-managing—a pleasant departure from the typical freelancer marketplace.”
Mike Riess
Owner @ RiessGroup
“With Toptal, we are able to find talented developers in a matter of weeks instead of months. The quality of talent they supply is extremely high as the developers are able to immediately onboard and ramp incredibly fast.”
Zac Carman
CEO @ ConsumerAffairs
“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
“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 needed some short-term work in Scala, and Toptal found us a great developer within 24 hours. This simply would not have been possible via any other platform.”
Franco Arda
Co-Founder @ WhatAdsWork.com
“Toptal helped us when we had a hiring gap we needed to fill. The developer we received was excellent, with a great work ethic and fit in very well with the team. We are very happy with the service and would definitely consider using Toptal again in future should we need additional help. ”
David Gildeh
CEO @ Dataloop.io
“We were extremely impressed with both Toptal and our developer, Bojan. They were professional and flexible with our schedule. On multiple occasions, we needed to alter our timeline and they never hesitated to accommodate us. Bojan was communicative and delivered what we asked for on-time and exactly to spec. I know that should we need additional work, we will surely be looking to hire Bojan and Toptal again. ”
Stephen Vasallo
Co-founder @ Bubble
“FundedByMe needed to quickly scale our development team to create the equity crowdfunding leg of our operation. Working with a small budget, we couldn't spend time on vetting candidates, so we turned to Toptal. They identified a stellar developer that truly set the bar when it came to delivering product.”
