Testimonials
“Dave as a developer was absolutely fantastic! The guidance that he provided us will allow us to make tremendous improvements to the next version of our application.”
Baroni Parson
IT Manager @ City Real Estate Advisors, Inc.
“Toptal provides a great service: Within a week of posting my job, I was matched with my developer and ended up completing the entire project with him. I'll continue to use Toptal in the future for any new development work I may need.”
Mike Jones
CEO @ DigitalDripped
“I struggled for weeks with a Youtube API-specific problem and couldn't find anyone to solve it. Toptal immediately identified the right consultant who took the time to investigate the issue and resolve it quickly. The process was seamless and I will continue to use Toptal with any other issues that arise.”
Rohit Gupta
CEO @ Bollyshake
“Toptal developers deliver. Hiring my first developer on Toptal was such a pleasant experience that I quickly turned around and hired another. Every developer I've hired on Toptal has been professional, skilled, and self-managing—a pleasant departure from the typical freelancer marketplace.”
Mike Riess
Owner @ RiessGroup
“We have been incredibly happy with our Toptal experience. Initially a skeptic, the process to find and recruit a fabulous iOS developer was very easy. 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. ”
James O'Day
Co-Founder @ Pearlshare
“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.”
Xavier Xicay
CEO & Creative Director @ Tuatara Corp
“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
“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

Justin Bane
Senior Technical Lead @ Zoomedia
“Andrea is doing an amazing job. I don't think we could have gotten a better person. He is fun to work with, he thinks out of the box, and he is extremely knowledgeable in what he is going. He not only does an excellent job, he also helps our company to differentiate our business model further (e.g. making our app offline-capable). I would recommend Andrea as well as Toptal any time to any friend.”
Pascal Girardat
Co-Founder / CEO @ Lifestage Solutions AG

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
