Toptal on TV
"Toptal is killing it, it kind of owns this market."
Andrew Ross Sorkin Reviews Toptal
Cnbc 02e66b
"Tech companies simply cannot find the quality employees they want to hire. The solution: Toptal."
Liz Claman´s Review of Toptal
Fox 7ef901
Toptal in the press
“Despite accelerating demand for coders, Toptal prides itself on almost Ivy League-level vetting.”
Selina Wang
“Toptal allows corporations to quickly assemble teams that have the right skills for specific projects.”
Steven Norton
“As an internet marketing company specializing in pay-per-click management, our clients frequently ask us to provide services that fall outside the scope of our primary business. We have found Toptal to be exactly the resource we need to connect with contractors so we can deliver our clients top tier web development talent at a reasonable cost.”
Pashmina Lalchandani
Owner @ Flowsimple
“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
“With Toptal, we are able to find talented developers in a matter of weeks instead of months. The quality of talent they supply is extremely high as the developers are able to immediately onboard and ramp incredibly fast.”
Zac Carman
CEO @ ConsumerAffairs
“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
“We've actually remodeled the way we do our work to take advantage of Toptal's capabilities. We develop pseudo code with some code fragments and send to our Toptal developer with a specific task set. The work is then further processed by the next group of Toptal engineers. It's been very efficient and we've seen a massive improvement in our development speed.”
William North
CTO & Co-Founder @ Swizly
“Through Toptal, we were able to find and select a senior engineer who is both very professional and easy to work with. The quality of matching that Toptal enabled has been crucial to our success, it was at a fair price, and it came with a much appreciated, risk-reducing trial period.”
John Olsen
Director @ Bingo Solutions
“Toptal is amazing! Sourcing and interviewing candidates has always been incredibly cumbersome and difficult - and usually takes weeks or months to find the right people. 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 bad-ass developer within 2 weeks. I love you, Toptal.”
Ian Fosbery
“We've used Toptal developers multiple times for multiple projects, and they've always been world-class—regardless of whether they've been from South Africa, Brazil, or the United States.”
Alex Haro
CEO @ Life360
“Toptal makes finding qualified engineers a breeze. We needed an experience ASP.NET MVC architect to guide the development of our start-up app, and Toptal had three great candidates for us in less than a week. After making our selection, the engineer was online immediately and hit the ground running. It was so much faster and easier than having to discover and vet candidates ourselves.”
Jeff Kelly
Co-Founder @ Concerted Solutions
“The task of finding and hiring the right developers and programmers can be daunting, especially for startups. After sifting through countless unfit freelancers, we came across Toptal. They were able to fill our open position in no time, and I'd highly recommend the service!”
Josef Holm
CEO @ Tubestart
“We used Toptal to hire a developer with extensive Amazon Web Services experience. The process was quick and effective. We interviewed four candidates one of which turned out to be a great fit for our requirements. We plan to use Toptal again in the future and would recommend their services.”
Abner Guzmán Rivera
CTO and Chief Scientist @ PhotoKarma, Inc.
“We needed some short-term work in Scala, and Toptal found us a great developer within 24 hours. It was done quickly for a specific need, and it's been great. It simply would not have been possible via any other platform.”
Franco Arda
Co-Founder @ WhatAdsWork.com
“One of our biggest and most time consuming problems is finding qualified staff. We need to find the correct platform to advertise on, create a proper ad, filter through tons of useless applications to try and find the small gems, interview and test the capabilities of applicants to see if they fit our profile and finally take a risk by hiring. This was the old way of doing things! The new way: describe the job position to our Toptal account manager, interview a few qualified applicants, hire with a risk-free trial! Much faster, a lot easier and with incredible end results.”
Catalin S. Balaci
Owner @ EvoBits Information Technology SRL
“John has been so great to work with! He has met all our requirements, done a speedy job with excellence, and has completed everything we’ve asked him to. Working with him has been a great experience.”
Jenny Lord
Communications Project Manager @ Lake Pointe Church
“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
“Toptal has been an incredible source of amazing software engineering talent. The contractors who have worked with us have been top notch, spoke perfect English, and worked superbly with our team. We recommend Toptal without any reservations!”
