Testimonials
“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
“FundedByMe needed to quickly scale our development team to create the equity crowdfunding leg of our operation. Working with a small budget, we couldn't spend time on vetting candidates, so we turned to Toptal. They identified a stellar developer that truly set the bar when it came to delivering product.”
Arno Smit
CTO @ FundedByMe.com
“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
“Toptal helped us when we had a hiring gap we needed to fill. The developer we received was excellent, with a great work ethic and fit in very well with the team. We are very happy with the service and would definitely consider using Toptal again in future should we need additional help. ”
David Gildeh
CEO @ Dataloop.io
“My experience with Toptal has exceeded expectations. I needed to quickly find a front-end developer, and the first person they recommended was a perfect fit. A month later, I needed an iOS developer and they delivered again. I'm incredibly impressed with the quality of the people in Toptal's network and how quickly I was able to find a match for my needs.”
Bruno De Martino
Head of Product @ Token
“We struggled for weeks to find a developer or architect with expertise in a niche API, but to no avail. When we linked up with Toptal, they connected us with the very expert we needed, and a week later we were hard at work making progress! The whole process was very smooth and we ended up with a new feature we couldn't have done without Toptal.”
Thomas Honeyman
COO @ FindMySong
“We've been very pleased with our experience working with Toptal. Their team was incredibly helpful in helping us find the perfect developer for our project.

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. ”
