“Toptal is amazing. Sourcing and interviewing candidates has always been incredibly cumbersome and difficult - and usually takes weeks or months to find the right people. With Toptal, we had 5 candidates in 2 days that were all perfect for the job. They made the scheduling of interviews easy and straightforward and we were working with a top-level developer within 2 weeks. I love you, Toptal.”
