Hear From Our Global Network of Developers

I've been working with WordPress for over 6 years at a variety of companies, but Toptal is the first place where I've gotten to create beautiful and functional sites from scratch, integrate with different CRMs and 3rd party services, and investigate new front-end and back-end technologies. Working at Toptal has allowed me to grow as a specialist, and I love being able to do it all remotely.

During my time at Toptal, I've completed quite a few projects and have been able to showcase my skills at server side programming (Java Spring Boot, Hibernate, JPA PostgreSQL) and at Front End as well (Swift, ObjC, React Native). I've met a lot of educated and highly experienced people and most importantly, I've gained a lot of experience with a very good salary. Toptal is the best way for any developer to demonstrate and sharpen their capabilities.

I had my doubts when starting as a freelancer. Searching for clients and selling yourself takes a lot of time and energy. Toptal gave me a completely new view on being a freelancer. I'm a fan of the peace of mind that comes with Toptal, since I have access to a lot of great projects and I don't have to worry about getting paid or selling my knowledge to new potential clients. Instead, I can focus on what I do best - software development and spending time improving my expertise with new languages, tools, and frameworks.
