Our Talent Screening Process
Excellent technical communication
Toptal developers and designers must possess strong written and verbal communication skills. They work effectively across multiple collaboration tools and convey complex engineering ideas and design concepts with ease.
Core skills and algorithms
Each developer and designer is required to demonstrate their computer science or design fundamentals, problem-solving ability, and technical aptitude to a panel of leading experts.
Toptal developers and designers are experts in tackling roadblocks creatively and independently. Each candidate is live-screened by two top developers or designers where they have to offer multiple paths to the solution and make decisions on the spot.
End-to-End project execution
Developers and designers deliver a test project to completion, demonstrating their skills across ideating, scoping, implementation, and problem-solving.
Toptal developers and designers are expected to maintain a perfect track record while working with clients. We assess our talent after every engagement to ensure our standards for excellence were met.
