“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.”

Vineet Singal
Co-Founder @ CareMessage
“I needed help, and fast. I did not want to hire a random coder I met online- I was worried about security, and many other issues. Toptal was there when I needed them- and has been fantastic to work with. Outsourcing is full of terrible stories- Toptal is the story that is the giant exception. I give them my highest recommendation.”
Michael Feder
Founder & CEO @ PrayerSpark
“I can't say enough about how happy and confident I am in working with Enrique. He brings an enthusiasm to his profession that is very refreshing, constantly surprising us with his depth of knowledge and his capability to not only complete the task, but to surpass our expectations. He presents us with solutions that we would not have thought about ourselves, and sees the problem better than we can explain it.”
Chad Berryman
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“We needed a programmer to help push a project over the finish line, and I figured -- best case -- Toptal would find someone who would come in and complete a few tickets. Instead, Sergio blended right in with the team and made significant progress after mere days of ramp-up. He even offered to take his laptop with him on vacation in case we had a customer issue with his code! He surpassed my expectations, and then some.”
