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
“Dario was recently assigned to our company in order to help with PHP and JW Video player refinements. He listens extremely well and offers common sense suggestions that save both time and money. He speeds up the process by asking great questions, and he just delivered our first project on time. His redesigned player offers a very pleasing appearance and delivers functions that are both elegant and intuitive.”
Dennis B. Jacobs
President @ College TV Ticket
“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
“I'm incredibly impressed with the caliber of the Toptal developers I have worked with - they have proven themselves to be both dedicated and highly talented. We will most definitely continue to work with Toptal. ”
Savannah de Savary
Founder @ Industry Hub
“Through Toptal, we were able to find and select a senior engineer who is both very professional and easy to work with. The quality of matching that Toptal enabled has been crucial to our success, was at a fair price, and came with a much appreciated, risk-reducing trial period.”
John Olsen, Director
Director @ Bingosolutions
“I needed help, and fast. I did not want to hire a random coder I met online- I was worried about security, and many other issues. Toptal was there when I needed them- and has been fantastic to work with. Outsourcing is full of terrible stories- Toptal is the story that is the giant exception. I give them my highest recommendation.”
Michael Feder
Founder & CEO @ PrayerSpark
“We have been with Toptal for over two years and have hired through them multiple times. They've never failed to deliver with world-class talent and customer service and have been our first choice when scaling our team.”
Stuart Reavley
Product Lead @ ClassDojo
“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
“John has been so great to work with! He has met all our requirements, done a speedy job with excellence, and has completed everything we’ve asked him to. Working with him has been a great experience.”
Jenny Lord
Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“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
“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
“The task of finding and hiring the right developers and programmers can be daunting, especially for startups. After sifting through countless unfit freelancers, we came across Toptal. They were able to fill our open position in no time, and I'd highly recommend the service!”
Josef Holm
CEO @ Tubestart
“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.”
Arno Smit
CTO @ FundedByMe.com
“In our 2 years of operations this is by far the most enjoyable and productive working relationship we have had with a developer. I plan on continuing to recommend Toptal's services to other entrepreneurs I run into.”
David Sawyer
CEO @ TSOLife
“We had a great experience with Toptal. They paired us with the perfect developer for our application and made the process very easy. It was also easy to extend beyond the initial time frame, and we were able to keep the same contractor throughout our project. We definitely recommend Toptal for finding high quality talent quickly and seamlessly.”
Ryan Morrissey
CTO @ Applied Business Technologies, LLC
“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
“Working with Enrique has been a pleasure and a relief. His knowledge in the IT space is broad and in-depth. Zoomedia has been in need of this level of support for some time and I feel confident we are an exponentially stronger team with Enrique on board.”
Justin Bane
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“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
“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've had multiple needs for various development talent and Toptal doesn't disappoint. They truly focus on matching the best developer to our specific engagements, and they continue to stay connected in an effort to exceed our expectations at all times”
