Testimonials
“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
“In addition to sharp technical skills, Faruk had a great attitude and is a really exceptional communicator. He always let us know where he was with his work, thoroughly and reliably. That's not always the case, and it made working remotely considerably easier. He was an easy integration into the team. ”
Leif Abraham
Co-Founder @ AND CO Ventures Inc
“Toptal is a great resource for startups with ever-changing product roadmaps and budgets. Within 8 business days of our first conversation, we had highly skilled and reasonably priced Toptal developers working for us. It has been an empowering experience for our company to start working with Toptal.”
Chris Clark
CEO @ BirdieFire
“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 needed some short-term work in Scala, and Toptal found us a great developer within 24 hours. This simply would not have been possible via any other platform.”
Franco Arda
Co-Founder @ WhatAdsWork.com
“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
“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
“Working with Toptal has been a great experience. Prior to using them, I had spent quite some time interviewing other freelancers and wasn't finding what I needed. After engaging with Toptal, they matched me up with the perfect developer in a matter of days. The developer I'm working with not only delivers quality code, but he also makes suggestions on things that I hadn't thought of. It's clear to me that Amaury knows what he is doing. Highly recommended!”
George Cheng
CEO @ Bulavard, Inc.
“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 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
“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.”
