Frequently Asked Questions

Screening Process

What does the screening process look like?

To become a member of the Toptal network, you first need to pass our screening process. There are several steps to our screening process, including showcasing your clear communication and domain expertise, and engaging in a real-world assessment.

Why do I have to go through screening?

The screening process is designed to evaluate your skills and give you a sense of the work we do with our clients. By screening every candidate and vetting every client, we ensure that Toptal maintains top-tier professionals in the network. Once you’ve gone through our screening process, you’ll become the newest member of the Toptal Network, and our team will start connecting you to exciting projects with global clients. Every client in our network understands our screening process, so when you’re picking up new work, you won’t need to do any traditional interviewing.

How long does the process take?

Each step has a different length, but typically the process will take 2-5 weeks before you’re able to start working with clients. It’s like any other interview process with a company, but the good news is that you’ll only need to do it once.

Payments

How does Toptal make money?

Toptal generates revenue through direct contracts with clients.

How much can I earn?

At Toptal, you are free to choose your own rate and find clients that are willing to pay that rate. You don’t need to worry about negotiating or haggling anymore!

When it comes to calculating your rate, we even created a tool that shows you how much more you could earn!'

Does Toptal take a cut from the hourly rate I set?

No, Toptal does not take a cut from your hourly rate. The rate that you set is the rate that you will receive for every engagement with a client.

Projects

How many projects can I take on at one time?

At Toptal, we give you the flexibility to work on as many projects and with as many clients as you want, as long as you’re still able to deliver quality work. We give you the freedom to increase or decrease the amount of work at any point.

I am interested in more than projects that are just for QA.

Great! We have many projects across a wide array of skills. You can find projects for other skills right below or visit our jobs page.

I’m interested in a new project but I don’t have the exact skill required.

At Toptal, we encourage growth for each and every member of our talent network. We have dedicated tools and processes set up to help you build new skills, so that you can take on projects that are of interest to you. Whether you use our community Slack channel to chat with experts or attend Toptal Academies, you’ll have the tools necessary to improve your existing skills and gain new ones.
