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
Testimonials
“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 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
“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
“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
“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
“We needed a programmer to help push a project over the finish line, and I figured -- best case -- Toptal would find someone who would come in and complete a few tickets. Instead, Sergio blended right in with the team and made significant progress after mere days of ramp-up. He even offered to take his laptop with him on vacation in case we had a customer issue with his code! He surpassed my expectations, and then some.”
Bryan Adams
CTO @ Healthsense
“We had a wonderful experience with our Toptal consultant. He was very reliable and punctual, delivering excellent work on a budget—we will certainly be using him again!”
Barbara Karpf
President @ DecoratorsBest
“We needed a talented developer and we needed him/her very quickly. So we turned to Toptal and couldn't be happier with the results! Our Toptal freelancer has contributed extraordinary knowledge, talent, and startup experience to our team. We will continue to work with Toptal to fulfill our future talent needs.”
Lindsay Fairman
Founder & Owner @ FairTech Labs, LLC
“Ignacio is one of the most diligent software developers that we have ever worked with—we feel like he's part of the family. He has always been flexible enough to work on our team's schedule and never misses deadlines. Toptal gets you the talent you need, on your timeline, keeping the process very low friction.”
Austin Evarts
CEO @ GoChime
“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 caliber of the Toptal developers I have worked with - they have proven themselves to be both dedicated and highly talented. We will most definitely continue to work with Toptal. ”
Savannah de Savary
Founder @ Industry Hub
“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
“I’m a big believer in the saying, ‘hire smart, or manage tough’. For us non-hackers, Toptal takes the guesswork out of hiring. Their coders are vetted, and the work is guaranteed. Why look anywhere else?”
Greg Archbald
Founder & CEO @ Greasebook
“We have been with Toptal for over two years and have hired through them multiple times. They've never failed to deliver with world-class talent and customer service and have been our first choice when scaling our team.”
Stuart Reavley
Product Lead @ ClassDojo
“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
