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
Testimonials
“The developers I was paired with were incredible -- smart, driven, and responsive. It used to be hard to find quality engineers and consultants. Now it isn't.”
Ryan Rockefeller
CEO @ Radeeus
“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 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
“Toptal makes finding qualified engineers a breeze. We needed an experienced 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
“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
“The best talent is at Toptal for sure. It's way better and faster than any other means of getting top talent.”
Rajesh Nagarajan
Co-Founder & CTO @ maxmantra
“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
“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
“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!”
Artem Tolmachev
CEO @ eKids.nl
“Tripcents wouldn't exist without Toptal. Toptal Projects enabled us to rapidly develop our foundation with a product manager, lead developer, and senior designer. In just over 60 days we went from concept to Alpha. The speed, knowledge, expertise, and flexibility is second to none. The Toptal team were as part of tripcents as any in-house team member of tripcents. They contributed and took ownership of the development just like everyone else. We will continue to use Toptal. As a start up, they are our secret weapon.”
Brantley Pace
CEO & Co-Founder @ Tripcents
“In our 2 years of operations this is by far the most enjoyable and productive working relationship we have had with a developer. I plan on continuing to recommend Toptal's services to other entrepreneurs I run into.”
David Sawyer
CEO @ TSOLife
“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
“As a small company with limited resources we can't afford to make expensive mistakes. Toptal provided us with an experienced programmer who was able to hit the ground running and begin contributing immediately. It has been a great experience and one we'd repeat again in a heartbeat.”
