SAN FRANCISCO – March 7, 2017 – Toptal, the exclusive network connecting the world’s top talent with innovative companies, today announced the launch of Toptal Finance to provide on-demand finance expertise to Fortune 500 companies seeking help with critical finance challenges. With the largest distributed workforce in the world and revenues exceeding $100 million and growing at 360 percent over the prior two years, Toptal has executed a very successful model of matching top talent with enterprise clients around the world. Toptal Finance comes in response to strong client demand for finance experts. During a two-month beta period, Toptal Finance hit seven figures in revenue with a 17 percent week-over-week revenue growth rate from existing Toptal clients.
Toptal Finance will offer a variety of services facilitated by seasoned finance, investment banking and consulting professionals that includes on-demand support for financial reporting and planning, business valuation, capital raising, pricing strategy, market research, and data modeling.
“Toptal has created a large and growing network of thousands of the best, most talented individuals to help organizations rapidly scale, accelerate project delivery, and quickly adapt to changes in technology and business,” said Taso Du Val, co-founder and CEO at Toptal. “We have perfected the match between employers and talent, allowing our talent to start working on projects within 24 hours. Bringing these capabilities now to the finance space is a natural extension of our business and a big opportunity for growth.”
How Toptal Works
Toptal attracts the best talent across technology and engineering, design and now finance. Applicants undergo a rigorous screening process that accepts only one percent of applicants. Toptal then looks for the perfect fit between the client and talent every time. Leveraging a curated, expert-driven matching process ensures that the right individual or team is found, without time-consuming resume reviews and interviews. The company’s proprietary technology platform automates the process, driving speed and efficiency. The outcome is a highly qualified workforce with specialized skills to meet the needs of diverse companies – saving both time and money.
“At Mobovida, we had tremendous success staffing our technology projects with Toptal’s elite workforce for our rapidly expanding e-commerce business,” said Gene Ku, founder and CEO of Mobovida. “Given the success we’ve seen on the technology side, it was an easy decision to expand our relationship and use Toptal for our finance needs as well.”
“I joined Toptal after an eighteen-year career in finance in New York City where I led finance and helped secure capital for high-growth startups as well as spent several years on Wall Street involved in equity, debt, M&A and restructuring transactions,” said Kelly Sickles, Toptal Finance Expert. “Toptal has provided me the flexibility to live outside the city while continuing to work with world-class companies and leverage my expertise to solve complex problems.”
“A strong analyst pool can turn a corporate strategy SVP into a corporate superhero. Toptal Finance gives you this without needing the overhead costs of having the whole team on staff all of the time,” said Tommy Doyle, general manager at RELX Group.
