Testimonials

Toptal helped us achieve our goals by really understanding what we were looking for. They worked with us very closely to figure out what the right talent looked like -- from a technical, cultural perspective -- and helped us get the onboarding done quickly so the talent could be effective as soon as possible.

Jay Tring, Technical Team Lead, CSR Connect, Australia

CSR Limited

I couldn’t have been more pleased with Toptal. They are professional, quick, well priced, and fun. I will be using them again for my next project, and the next, and the next, and the next ...

Mac Smith, President

New Texas Investments

The best talent is at Toptal for sure. It's way better and faster than any other means of getting top talent.

Rajesh Nagarajan, Co-Founder & CTO

maxmantra

Getting set up with Toptal and finding a new team member was so easy, I don't know why anyone wouldn't give it a try. Best of all, we no longer have to worry about finding great people to help with our projects!

Mike Branch , President & CTO

Harbor System Integrators, Inc

One of our most time consuming problems is finding qualified staff. We need to find the correct platform to advertise on, create a proper ad, filter through tons of applications, interview and test the applicants' capabilities, and finally take a risk by hiring. This was the old way of doing things. The new way: describe the job position to our Toptal account manager, interview a few qualified applicants, and hire with a risk-free trial -- much faster, a lot easier, and with incredible results.

Catalin S. Balaci, Owner

EvoBits Information Technology SRL

Always incredibly responsive, prompt, and flexible, Anna has done an outstanding job -- her work is exactly what we needed. Toptal has been a great experience for us due to the ease of getting a project going with quality talent at a cost that fits our budget. The automated online system for managing everything during onboarding was also impressive.

Cody Wilke, Product Manager

Crucial Life Sciences Data Solutions

What attracted us to Toptal was that Toptal is sourcing its talent from a global pool. The selection process is very stringent. They’re sourcing the talent not only based on capabilities -- sourcing the best 3% -- but also based on cultural fit, which is really important to us. We had an amazing experience working with Toptal. Toptal helped us achieve our goals by bringing us very high-quality resources, on very short notice.

I can't say enough about how happy and confident I am in working with Enrique. He brings an enthusiasm to his profession that is very refreshing, constantly surprising us with his depth of knowledge and his capability to not only complete the task, but to surpass our expectations. He presents us with solutions that we would not have thought about ourselves, and sees the problem better than we can explain it.
