Jenny Lord
Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“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.”

Barbara Karpf
President @ DecoratorsBest

Their team worked quickly and efficiently to isolate the needs of our project, and they paired us with an appropriate developer within a couple days who we quickly contracted after a great interview. The work performed on our project was top-notch, and we can’t wait to make use of Toptal’s resources again.”
Ryan Staake
Owner @ Pomp&Clout

“With the pressure on and millions watching the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA Playoffs, Toptal delivered the talent and expertise needed to launch a brand new fan engagement platform.”
Conor Kenney
Director of Professional Services @ Cleveland Cavaliers
“Toptal is amazing! Sourcing and interviewing candidates has always been incredibly cumbersome and difficult - and usually takes weeks or months to find the right people. With Toptal, we had 5 candidates in 2 days that were all perfect for the job. They made the scheduling of interviews easy and straightforward and we were working with a top-level bad-ass developer within 2 weeks. I love you, Toptal.”
Ian Fosbery
“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
“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!”
