Testimonials
“The developers I was paired with were incredible -- smart, driven, and responsive. It used to be hard to find quality engineers and consultants. Now it isn't.”
Ryan Rockefeller
CEO @ Radeeus
“Chris is an absolutely exceptional Python developer, and the single most efficient programmer I've ever worked with. From the beginning of the project, Chris was instantly a vital member of the team. He's proactive, self-managed, knowledgeable, and efficient. I point him in a direction, and he delivers. Chris will be a part of the Crisis Cleanup team as long as I have anything to say about it.”
Aaron Titus
Project Manager @ Crisis Cleanup
“In Higgle's early days, we needed the best-in-class developers, at affordable rates, in a timely fashion. Toptal delivered! ”
Lara Aldag
CEO @ Higgle
“One of their engineers from Colombia has joined our team as a full-time developer for more than 6 months, sometimes flying to work on-site in New York City with us. He is one of the best developers I've ever worked with.”
Carter Cleveland
CEO @ Artsy
“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
“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
“As a growing startup, finding top-notch engineering talent at affordable rates is one of the biggest challenges. After being frustrated with unreliable local contractors in New York, we turned to Toptal. We worked closely with Michal in Poland for 5 months and were thrilled with the results. Michal was an outstanding engineer who communicated flawlessly and took control of our project in ways that far exceeded my expectations. I give Michal and Toptal my highest endorsement and will continue to use and recommend them to anyone looking for software engineering talent.”
David Baker
Founder @ Spins.FM
“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
“Toptal makes finding qualified engineers a breeze. We needed an experienced ASP.NET MVC architect to guide the development of our start-up app, and Toptal had three great candidates for us in less than a week. After making our selection, the engineer was online immediately and hit the ground running. It was so much faster and easier than having to discover and vet candidates ourselves.”
Jeff Kelly
Co-Founder @ Concerted Solutions
“It has been wonderful to work with Fabian for the past two years. He is an expert in JavaScript development and has built our embeddable widget and video player. He is a quick study and is able to learn how to integrate new technologies, which is so critical for a startup. He even took the extra effort to teach others on the team. He is super responsive and often went above and beyond to help us meet deadlines (including working on weekends). Thank you Fabian. Thank you Toptal for making it so easy to find and work with amazing talent.”
Natasha Mohanty
