“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
“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 understood our project needs immediately. We were matched with an exceptional freelancer from Argentina who, from Day 1, immersed himself in our industry, blended seamlessly with our team, understood our vision, and produced top-notch results. Toptal makes connecting with superior developers and programmers very easy.”
Jason Kulik
Co-Founder @ ProHatch
“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
Owner @ EvoBits Information Technology SRL
“Toptal has provided us developers for a wide range of projects. They are quick to provide candidates, and always very quick in communication. We have been happy with the quality of work from the developers as well as the Toptal representatives. Highly recommend!”
Gena Romano
Vice President of Digital @ VOX Global
“Tripcents wouldn't exist without Toptal. Toptal Projects enabled us to rapidly develop our foundation with a product manager, lead developer, and senior designer. In just over 60 days we went from concept to Alpha. The speed, knowledge, expertise, and flexibility is second to none. The Toptal team were as part of tripcents as any in-house team member of tripcents. They contributed and took ownership of the development just like everyone else. We will continue to use Toptal. As a start up, they are our secret weapon.”
Brantley Pace
CEO & Co-Founder @ Tripcents
“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
“Chris is an absolutely exceptional Python developer, and the single most efficient programmer I've ever worked with. From the beginning of the project, Chris was instantly a vital member of the team. He's proactive, self-managed, knowledgeable, and efficient. I point him in a direction, and he delivers. Chris will be a part of the Crisis Cleanup team as long as I have anything to say about it.”
Aaron Titus
Project Manager @ Crisis Cleanup
“We've been incredibly pleased with our experience working with Toptal thus far. Their team worked quickly and efficiently to isolate the needs of our project, and they paired us with an appropriate developer within a couple days who we quickly contracted after a great interview. The work performed on our project was top-notch, and we can’t wait to make use of Toptal’s resources again.”
Ryan Staake
Owner @ Pomp&Clout
“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
“Robert was such a breath of fresh air. He was an excellent communicator and knew exactly what I was looking for. Now, I have a website that works better than I thought it could for less than the cost -- and in half the time -- it would have taken other developers. Robert is as good as they come, a true professional -- anyone thinking of working with him, hire him. You won’t regret it.”
Matthew Bennett
CEO @ Winning Social LLC
“I am more than pleased with our experience with Toptal. The professional I got to work with was on the phone with me within a couple of hours. I knew after discussing my project with him that he was the candidate I wanted. I hired him immediately and he wasted no time in getting to my project, even going the extra mile by adding some great design elements that enhanced our overall look. ”
Paul Fenley
Director @ K Dunn & Associates
“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
Founder @ Spins.FM
“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
