Baroni Parson
IT Manager @ City Real Estate Advisors, Inc.

Greg Archbald
Founder & CEO @ Greasebook

“It has been wonderful to work with Fabian for the past two years. He is an expert in JavaScript development and has built our embeddable widget and video player. He is a quick study and is able to learn how to integrate new technologies, which is so critical for a startup. He even took the extra effort to teach others on the team. He is super responsive and often went above and beyond to help us meet deadlines (including working on weekends). Thank you Fabian. Thank you Toptal for making it so easy to find and work with amazing talent.”
Natasha Mohanty

We had several trial periods and have just accepted our first developer to join the team! The whole process went seamlessly and without any surprises or hidden costs. We are very happy and will continue to work together!”
Artem Tolmachev

David Sawyer
CEO @ TSOLife
“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
“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
“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
“One of their engineers from Colombia has joined our team as a full-time developer for more than 6 months, sometimes flying to work on-site in New York City with us. He is one of the best developers I've ever worked with.”
