"Toptal is killing it, it kind of owns this market."
Andrew Ross Sorkin Reviews Toptal
"Tech companies simply cannot find the quality employees they want to hire. The solution: Toptal."
Liz Claman´s Review of Toptal
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 offers a no-compromise solution to businesses undergoing rapid development and scale. Every engineer we've contracted through Toptal has quickly integrated into our team and held their work to the highest standard of quality while maintaining blazing development speed.”
Greg Kimball
Co-Founder @ nifti.com
“To take advantage of Toptal's capabilities, we actually remodeled the way we do our work. We develop pseudo code with some code fragments that we send to our Toptal developer, who has 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
“We really enjoy working with Toptal. The experience has been very positive, and we'd recommend it to anyone seeking developers on-demand.”
Jeff Kerr
CEO @ CaseFleet
“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
“We needed some short-term work in Scala, and Toptal found us a great developer within 24 hours. This simply would not have been possible via any other platform.”
Franco Arda
Co-Founder @ WhatAdsWork.com
“Toptal has provided us developers for a wide range of projects. They are quick to provide candidates, and always very quick in communication. We have been happy with the quality of work from the developers as well as the Toptal representatives. Highly recommend!”
Gena Romano
Vice President of Digital @ VOX Global
“Toptal helped us achieve our goals by really understanding what we were looking for. They worked with us very closely to figure out what the right talent looked like -- from a technical, cultural perspective -- and helped us get the onboarding done quickly so the talent could be effective as soon as possible. ”
Jay Tring
Technical Team Lead, CSR Connect, Australia @ CSR Limited
“We had a great experience with Toptal. They paired us with the perfect developer for our application and made the process very easy. It was also easy to extend beyond the initial time frame, and we were able to keep the same contractor throughout our project. We definitely recommend Toptal for finding high quality talent quickly and seamlessly.”
Ryan Morrissey
CTO @ Applied Business Technologies, LLC
“Our experience with Toptal was very good. We had an open ended development project when we got started and the programmer from Toptal was very helpful, working with us on everything from the top level outline all the way down to development and delivery of functioning code." ”
Michael Milton
VP of Engineering @ SLANTRANGE
“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
“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
“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've been very pleased with our experience working with Toptal. Their team was incredibly helpful in finding us the perfect developer for our project. The work was stellar, the communication was excellent, and we couldn't have been happier with the overall experience. We're excited to work with Toptal for more projects in the future. ”
Ryan Walker
Director, Product Management @ Rand McNally
“Finding a good developer who specialised in the technologies we use seemed like an impossible task... until we used Toptal. We had several trial periods and have just accepted our first developer to join the team! The whole process went seamlessly and without any surprises or hidden costs. We are very happy and will continue to work together!”
