Steven Norton
Testimonials
“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
“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

Lindsay Fairman

Jenny Lord
Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“Andrea is doing an amazing job. I don't think we could have gotten a better person. He is fun to work with, he thinks out of the box, and he is extremely knowledgeable in what he is going. He not only does an excellent job, he also helps our company to differentiate our business model further (e.g. making our app offline-capable). I would recommend Andrea as well as Toptal any time to any friend.”
Pascal Girardat
Co-Founder / CEO @ Lifestage Solutions AG
“My business relationship with Toptal has been nothing short of terrific. From reviewing my project with their team to choosing a highly-talented developer, and all the way through releasing our application, it has been an incredibly smooth and successful experience.”
Gary Craig
Senior Analyst @ NetApp
“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

Jeff Kerr
CEO @ CaseFleet
“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
“Toptal provides a great service: Within a week of posting my job, I was matched with my developer and ended up completing the entire project with him. I'll continue to use Toptal in the future for any new development work I may need.”
Mike Jones
CEO @ DigitalDripped

David Gildeh
CEO @ Dataloop.io
“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
“Toptal was the best thing to happen to my web app. Initially, I hired a team of freelancers from India through another freelancing website—which was a nightmare. In fact, it was so bad that I had to start again from scratch, which is when I found Toptal. The experiences were like night and day. It was so refreshing to get partnered up with a quality developer that I could trust due to Toptal's extensive screening process. I will only use Toptal from now on and highly recommend you do the same.”
Chris Holtzhauer
CEO @ HootRecruit
“We needed a programmer to help push a project over the finish line, and I figured -- best case -- Toptal would find someone who would come in and complete a few tickets. Instead, Sergio blended right in with the team and made significant progress after mere days of ramp-up. He even offered to take his laptop with him on vacation in case we had a customer issue with his code! He surpassed my expectations, and then some.”
Bryan Adams
CTO @ Healthsense
“As a growing startup, finding top-notch engineering talent at affordable rates is one of the biggest challenges. After being frustrated with unreliable local contractors in New York, we turned to Toptal. We worked closely with Michal in Poland for 5 months and were thrilled with the results. Michal was an outstanding engineer who communicated flawlessly and took control of our project in ways that far exceeded my expectations. I give Michal and Toptal my highest endorsement and will continue to use and recommend them to anyone looking for software engineering talent.”
David Baker
Founder @ Spins.FM
“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
“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”
Mindle Hastings
Sr. Product Manager @ Bodybuilding.com
“Dave as a developer was absolutely fantastic! The guidance that he provided us will allow us to make tremendous improvements to the next version of our application.”
Baroni Parson
IT Manager @ City Real Estate Advisors, Inc.
“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.
