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
“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
“Toptal offers a no-compromise solution to businesses undergoing rapid development and scale. Every engineer we've contracted through Toptal has quickly integrated into our team and held their work to the highest standard of quality while maintaining blazing development speed.”
Greg Kimball
Co-Founder @ nifti.com
“Working with Enrique has been a pleasure and a relief. His knowledge in the IT space is broad and in-depth. Zoomedia has been in need of this level of support for some time and I feel confident we are an exponentially stronger team with Enrique on board.”
Justin Bane
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“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
“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
“Toptal's developers and architects have been both very professional and easy to work with. The solution they produced was fairly priced and top quality, reducing our time to launch. Thanks again, Toptal.”
Jeremy Wessels
CEO @ Kognosi
“With Toptal, we are able to find talented developers in a matter of weeks instead of months. The quality of talent they supply is extremely high as the developers are able to immediately onboard and ramp incredibly fast.”
Zac Carman
CEO @ ConsumerAffairs
“I needed help, and fast. I did not want to hire a random coder I met online- I was worried about security, and many other issues. Toptal was there when I needed them- and has been fantastic to work with. Outsourcing is full of terrible stories- Toptal is the story that is the giant exception. I give them my highest recommendation.”
Michael Feder
Founder & CEO @ PrayerSpark
“Working with Toptal has been a great experience. Prior to using them, I had spent quite some time interviewing other freelancers and wasn't finding what I needed. After engaging with Toptal, they matched me up with the perfect developer in a matter of days. The developer I'm working with not only delivers quality code, but he also makes suggestions on things that I hadn't thought of. It's clear to me that Amaury knows what he is doing. Highly recommended!”
George Cheng
