Testimonials
“Working with Marcin is a joy. He is competent, professional, flexible, and extremely quick to understand what is required and how to implement it. ”
André Fischer
CTO @ POSTIFY
“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
“We had a great experience with Toptal. They paired us with the perfect developer for our application and made the process very easy. It was also easy to extend beyond the initial time frame, and we were able to keep the same contractor throughout our project. We definitely recommend Toptal for finding high quality talent quickly and seamlessly.”
Ryan Morrissey
CTO @ Applied Business Technologies, LLC
“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
“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
“As a growing startup, finding top-notch engineering talent at affordable rates is one of the biggest challenges. After being frustrated with unreliable local contractors in New York, we turned to Toptal. We worked closely with Michal in Poland for 5 months and were thrilled with the results. Michal was an outstanding engineer who communicated flawlessly and took control of our project in ways that far exceeded my expectations. I give Michal and Toptal my highest endorsement and will continue to use and recommend them to anyone looking for software engineering talent.”
David Baker

Josef Holm
CEO @ Tubestart
“What attracted us to Toptal was that Toptal is sourcing its talent from a global pool. The selection process is very stringent. They’re sourcing the talent not only based on capabilities -- sourcing the best 3% -- but also based on cultural fit, which is really important to us. We had an amazing experience working with Toptal. Toptal helped us achieve our goals by bringing us very high-quality resources, on very short notice.”
Elmar Platzer
Digital Transformation Leader, CSR Australia @ CSR Limited

Artem Tolmachev
CEO @ eKids.nl

Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“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
“One of our most time consuming problems is finding qualified staff. We need to find the correct platform to advertise on, create a proper ad, filter through tons of applications, interview and test the applicants' capabilities, and finally take a risk by hiring. This was the old way of doing things. The new way: describe the job position to our Toptal account manager, interview a few qualified applicants, and hire with a risk-free trial -- much faster, a lot easier, and with incredible results.”
Catalin S. Balaci
