Baroni Parson
IT Manager @ City Real Estate Advisors, Inc.
“I struggled for weeks with a Youtube API-specific problem and couldn't find anyone to solve it. Toptal immediately identified the right consultant who took the time to investigate the issue and resolve it quickly. The process was seamless and I will continue to use Toptal with any other issues that arise.”
Rohit Gupta
CEO @ Bollyshake
“The Toptal process was very organized, personable, and professional. They get to know you and your project idea, and then quickly provide you with several of the world's best developers, who will work hard to achieve your vision. I found a great developer in only a few days and was able to turn my idea into a functional product.”

“In addition to sharp technical skills, Faruk had a great attitude and is a really exceptional communicator. He always let us know where he was with his work, thoroughly and reliably. That's not always the case, and it made working remotely considerably easier. He was an easy integration into the team. ”
Leif Abraham
Co-Founder @ AND CO Ventures Inc
“Toptal makes finding a candidate extremely easy and gives you peace-of-mind that they have the skills to deliver. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for highly-skilled developers.”
Michael Gluckman
Data Manager @ Mxit
“We're a small firm with big dreams. After trying 4 or 5 local or outsourced developers, we were out of options. I'd heard of Toptal, but was worried that my company wasn't big enough for them. After calling them up, I found out that I didn't need to meet any minimum budget and was immediately put in touch with a developer to talk through my problems and goals. A day later, he got back to me with a list of possible solutions. After 9 months and 5 developers, Toptal got me my solution in a single week at a price I could afford.”
Kevin Ramirez
Co-Founder @ SixtyVocab.com
“As an internet marketing company specializing in pay-per-click management, our clients frequently ask us to provide services that fall outside the scope of our primary business.
