"Toptal is killing it, it kind of owns this market."
Andrew Ross Sorkin Reviews Toptal
Cnbc 02e66b
"Tech companies simply cannot find the quality employees they want to hire. The solution: Toptal."
Liz Claman´s Review of Toptal
Fox 7ef901
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
“Toptal makes finding a candidate extremely easy and gives you peace-of-mind that they have the skills to deliver. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for highly-skilled developers.”
Michael Gluckman
Data Manager @ Mxit
“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
“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
“I've been very happy with Juraj. He is efficient, writes great code, and is an extremely nice guy to work with. Most importantly, he is self-motivated -- in his initial pass at the code base he has contributed several optimizations and stability improvements.”
Matt Cotton
Dev Team Lead @ eFolder
“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
“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.”
Cody Wilke
Product Manager @ Crucial Life Sciences Data Solutions
“Toptal helped us achieve our goals by really understanding what we were looking for. They worked with us very closely to figure out what the right talent looked like -- from a technical, cultural perspective -- and helped us get the onboarding done quickly so the talent could be effective as soon as possible. ”
Jay Tring
Technical Team Lead, CSR Connect, Australia @ CSR Limited
“I struggled for weeks with a Youtube API-specific problem and couldn't find anyone to solve it. Toptal immediately identified the right consultant who took the time to investigate the issue and resolve it quickly. The process was seamless and I will continue to use Toptal with any other issues that arise.”
Rohit Gupta
CEO @ Bollyshake
“To take advantage of Toptal's capabilities, we actually remodeled the way we do our work. We develop pseudo code with some code fragments that we send to our Toptal developer, who has a specific task set. The work is then further processed by the next group of Toptal engineers. It's been very efficient and we've seen a massive improvement in our development speed.”
William North
CTO & Co-Founder @ Swizly
“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
“Dario was recently assigned to our company in order to help with PHP and JW Video player refinements. He listens extremely well and offers common sense suggestions that save both time and money. He speeds up the process by asking great questions, and he just delivered our first project on time.

Dennis B. Jacobs

VP of Engineering @ SLANTRANGE
“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.”
