Testimonials
“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
“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
“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
CTO @ FEM 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. 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
“We've used Toptal developers multiple times for multiple projects, and they've always been world-class—regardless of whether they've been from South Africa, Brazil, or the United States.”
Alex Haro
CEO @ Life360
“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.
“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
“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
“I can't say enough about how happy and confident I am in working with Enrique. He brings an enthusiasm to his profession that is very refreshing, constantly surprising us with his depth of knowledge and his capability to not only complete the task, but to surpass our expectations. He presents us with solutions that we would not have thought about ourselves, and sees the problem better than we can explain it.”
Chad Berryman
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“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
CEO & Creative Director @ Tuatara Corp
“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
“I’m a big believer in the saying, ‘hire smart, or manage tough’. For us non-hackers, Toptal takes the guesswork out of hiring. Their coders are vetted, and the work is guaranteed. Why look anywhere else?”
Greg Archbald
Founder & CEO @ Greasebook
“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
“We had a wonderful experience with our Toptal consultant. He was very reliable and punctual, delivering excellent work on a budget—we will certainly be using him again!”
