Testimonials
“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.”
Natasha Mohanty
CTO @ FEM Inc
“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.
“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 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'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.”

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 developer within 2 weeks. I love you, Toptal.”
