Testimonials
“We were extremely impressed with both Toptal and our developer, Bojan. They were professional and flexible with our schedule. On multiple occasions, we needed to alter our timeline and they never hesitated to accommodate us. Bojan was communicative and delivered what we asked for on-time and exactly to spec. I know that should we need additional work, we will surely be looking to hire Bojan and Toptal again. ”

Mike Jones
CEO @ DigitalDripped
“Always incredibly responsive, prompt, and flexible, Anna has done an outstanding job -- her work is exactly what we needed. Toptal has been a great experience for us due to the ease of getting a project going with quality talent at a cost that fits our budget. The automated online system for managing everything during onboarding was also impressive.”
