Toptal in the press
“Despite accelerating demand for coders, Toptal prides itself on almost Ivy League-level vetting.”
Selina Wang
“Toptal allows corporations to quickly assemble teams that have the right skills for specific projects.”
Steven Norton
Testimonials
“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
“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
“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
“We needed a expert engineer who could start on our project immediately. Simanas exceeded our expectations with his work. Not having to interview and chase down an expert developer was an excellent time-saver and made everyone feel more comfortable with our choice to switch platforms to utilize a more robust language. Toptal made the process easy and convenient. Toptal is now the first place we look for expert-level help.”
Derek Minor
Senior VP of Web Development @ Networld Media Group
“John has been so great to work with! He has met all our requirements, done a speedy job with excellence, and has completed everything we’ve asked him to. Working with him has been a great experience.”
Jenny Lord
Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“In our 2 years of operations this is by far the most enjoyable and productive working relationship we have had with a developer. I plan on continuing to recommend Toptal's services to other entrepreneurs I run into.”
David Sawyer
CEO @ TSOLife
“Toptal has been an incredible source of amazing software engineering talent. The contractors who have worked with us have been top notch, spoke perfect English, and worked superbly with our team. We recommend Toptal without any reservations!”
Vineet Singal
Co-Founder @ CareMessage
“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
“Getting set up with Toptal and finding a new team member was so easy, I don't know why anyone wouldn't give it a try. Best of all, we no longer have to worry about finding great people to help with our projects!”
Mike Branch
President & CTO @ Harbor System Integrators, Inc
“Through Toptal, we were able to find and select a senior engineer who is both very professional and easy to work with. The quality of matching that Toptal enabled has been crucial to our success, was at a fair price, and came with a much appreciated, risk-reducing trial period.”
John Olsen, Director
Director @ Bingo Solutions
“To take advantage of Toptal's capabilities, we actually remodeled the way we do our work. We develop pseudo code with some code fragments that we send to our Toptal developer, who has a specific task set. The work is then further processed by the next group of Toptal engineers. It's been very efficient and we've seen a massive improvement in our development speed.”
William North
CTO & Co-Founder @ Swizly
“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 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. We have found Toptal to be exactly the resource we need to connect with contractors so we can deliver our clients top tier web development talent at a reasonable cost.”
Pashmina Lalchandani
Owner @ Flowsimple
“As a small company with limited resources we can't afford to make expensive mistakes. Toptal provided us with an experienced programmer who was able to hit the ground running and begin contributing immediately. It has been a great experience and one we'd repeat again in a heartbeat.”
