Josef Holm
CEO @ Tubestart
“We were extremely impressed with both Toptal and our developer, Bojan. They were extremely professional and flexible with our schedule. On multiple occasions, we needed to alter our timeline and they never hesitated to accommodate us. Bojan was communicative and delivered what we asked for on time and exactly to spec. I know that should we need additional work, will surely be looking to hire Bojan and Toptal again. ”

Pashmina Lalchandani

“Robert was such a breath of fresh air! I’m used to working with developers who don’t speak good English, don’t understand my needs, and are bad communicators in general. But Robert was not only an EXCELLENT communicator, he knew exactly what I was looking for and made it better than I thought possible. Now I have a website that works better than I thought it could for less than the cost it would have taken other developers, and in half the time. Robert is as good as they come, and a true professional. Anyone thinking of working with him, stop thinking about it and hire him. You won’t regret it.”
