Testimonials
“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
