Matthew Gambrell

Member since April 10, 2016
Matthew is kind of an old-fashioned console video game programmer. He's got his own 2D engine running on a bunch of platforms and adopted C# early on for tools. He's looking to put his skills to good use porting stuff around, wrestling with Visual Studio or WinForms, or making parts for a game. He can do stuff besides games, but multimedia-type work is where he really shines. I like writing lean code that runs at 60fps. Click to continue

"Tech companies simply cannot find the quality employees they want to hire. The solution: Toptal."

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
“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
“The Toptal process was very organized, personable, and professional. They get to know you and your project idea, and then quickly provide you with several of the world's best developers, who will work hard to achieve your vision. I found a great developer in only a few days and was able to turn my idea into a functional product.”
Ben Woratyla
CEO @ Book Swap
“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
“I really enjoyed my experience with Toptal. Searching for a developer was both painless and engaging, and the first match was a perfect fit! Toptal is a fantastic way to find talented developers for small or large aspects of your project.”
Willem Shepherd
Creative Director @ Mookieyams
“I couldn’t have been more pleased with Toptal. They are professional, quick, well priced, and fun. I will be using them again for my next project, and the next, and the next, and the next ... ”
Mac Smith
President @ New Texas Investments
“Andrea is doing an amazing job. I don't think we could have gotten a better person. He is fun to work with, he thinks out of the box, and he is extremely knowledgeable in what he is going. He not only does an excellent job, he also helps our company to differentiate our business model further (e.g. making our app offline-capable). I would recommend Andrea as well as Toptal any time to any friend.”
Pascal Girardat
Co-Founder / CEO @ Lifestage Solutions AG
“We used Toptal to hire a developer with extensive Amazon Web Services experience. We interviewed four candidates, one of which turned out to be a great fit for our requirements. The process was quick and effective. ”
Abner Guzmán Rivera
CTO and Chief Scientist @ Photo Kharma
“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
“We have been incredibly happy with our Toptal experience. Initially a skeptic, the process to find and recruit a fabulous iOS developer was very easy. Rather than sifting through hundreds of CVs, we saw two and hired them. They have worked effectively, getting up to speed incredibly quickly and have almost become part of the team. We would definitely use Toptal again. ”
James O'Day
Co-Founder @ Pearlshare
“The best talent is at Toptal for sure. It's way better and faster than any other means of getting top talent.”
Rajesh Nagarajan
Co-Founder & CTO @ maxmantra
“Ignacio is one of the most diligent software developers that we have ever worked with—we feel like he's part of the family. He has always been flexible enough to work on our team's schedule and never misses deadlines. Toptal gets you the talent you need, on your timeline, keeping the process very low friction.”
Austin Evarts
CEO @ GoChime
“We recently launched our app with the help of Toptal and Nikola, an iOS developer. I was immediately impressed with the constant communication, detail, and level of talent that Nikola brought to the table. More importantly, when the project was underway, Nikola proactively provided creative workarounds for unforeseen hurdles and challenges. I couldn't be happier with our engagement and would highly recommend Nikola and Toptal.”
Chip O'Toole
Founder @ Humans Helping Robots LLC
“My business relationship with Toptal has been nothing short of terrific. From reviewing my project with their team to choosing a highly-talented developer, and all the way through releasing our application, it has been an incredibly smooth and successful experience.”
Gary Craig
Senior Analyst @ NetApp
“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
“Toptal has helped my business tremendously by finding, vetting, and recruiting the talent I need, at the right time. I’d definitely recommend it to others.”
