Before joining Toptal, I had just quit my job and was thinking of becoming a contractor, but didn't know how to go about it. I applied to Toptal after hearing about it on a podcast, and it's been everything I could have hoped for. I've been able to work with several great companies, and the best part is that I didn't have to search them out. Thanks to the team at Toptal, great opportunities have just fallen into my lap.

Toptal has created an amazing community of developers who are all extremely passionate about helping each other solve any problem. For me, the best part has been that after learning a new language and starting to engage with other Toptal developers about the technology, I quickly landed two jobs in less than one month, and both were great experiences.
