“I'm incredibly impressed with the caliber of the Toptal developers I have worked with - they have proven themselves to be both dedicated and highly talented. We will most definitely continue to work with Toptal. ”
Savannah de Savary
Founder @ Industry Hub
“Finding a good developer who specialised in the technologies we use seemed like an impossible task... until we used Toptal. We had several trial periods and have just accepted our first developer to join the team! The whole process went seamlessly and without any surprises or hidden costs. We are very happy and will continue to work together!”
Artem Tolmachev
CEO @ eKids.nl
“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
“We struggled for weeks to find a developer or architect with expertise in a niche API, but to no avail. When we linked up with Toptal, they connected us with the very expert we needed, and a week later we were hard at work making progress! The whole process was very smooth and we ended up with a new feature we couldn't have done without Toptal.”
Thomas Honeyman
