Testimonials
“Getting set up with Toptal and finding a new team member was so easy, I don't know why anyone wouldn't give it a try. Best of all, we no longer have to worry about finding great people to help with our projects!”
Mike Branch
President & CTO @ Harbor System Integrators, Inc
“We've used Toptal developers multiple times for multiple projects, and they've always been world-class—regardless of whether they've been from South Africa, Brazil, or the United States.”
Alex Haro
CEO @ Life360
“As an internet marketing company specializing in pay-per-click management, our clients frequently ask us to provide services that fall outside the scope of our primary business. We have found Toptal to be exactly the resource we need to connect with contractors so we can deliver our clients top tier web development talent at a reasonable cost.”
Pashmina Lalchandani
Owner @ Flowsimple
“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
“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
