Testimonials
“Toptal has been extremely helpful to us in finding top remote talent. The ratio from interview to hire with Toptal candidates is the highest I've ever experienced in my professional career.”
Philipp Berner
Co-founder and CTO @ KeepSafe
“I’m a big believer in the saying, ‘hire smart, or manage tough’. For us non-hackers, Toptal takes the guesswork out of hiring. Their coders are vetted, and the work is guaranteed. Why look anywhere else?”
Greg Archbald
Founder & CEO @ Greasebook
“As a growing startup, finding top-notch engineering talent at affordable rates is one of the biggest challenges. After being frustrated with unreliable local contractors in New York, we turned to Toptal. We worked closely with Michal in Poland for 5 months and were thrilled with the results. Michal was an outstanding engineer who communicated flawlessly and took control of our project in ways that far exceeded my expectations. I give Michal and Toptal my highest endorsement and will continue to use and recommend them to anyone looking for software engineering talent.”
David Baker
Founder @ Spins.FM
“One of their engineers from Colombia has joined our team as a full-time developer for more than 6 months, sometimes flying to work on-site in New York City with us. He is one of the best developers I've ever worked with.”
Carter Cleveland
CEO @ Artsy
“In Higgle's early days, we needed best-in-class developers, at affordable rates, in a timely fashion. Toptal delivered! Higgle enjoyed working with Toptal and we appreciate their professionalism.”
Lara Aldag
CEO @ Higgle
“We had a wonderful experience with our Toptal consultant. He was very reliable and punctual, delivering excellent work on a budget—we will certainly be using him again!”
Barbara Karpf
President @ DecoratorsBest
“We're a small firm with big dreams. After trying 4 or 5 local or outsourced developers, we were out of options. I'd heard of Toptal, but was worried that my company wasn't big enough for them. After calling them up, I found out that I didn't need to meet any minimum budget and was immediately put in touch with a developer to talk through my problems and goals. A day later, he got back to me with a list of possible solutions. After 9 months and 5 developers, Toptal got me my solution in a single week at a price I could afford.”
Kevin Ramirez
Co-Founder @ SixtyVocab.com
“The developers I was paired with were incredible—smart, driven, and responsive. It used to be hard to find quality engineers and consultants. Now it isn't.”
Ryan Rockefeller
CEO @ Radeeus
“We have been incredibly happy with our Toptal experience. Initially a skeptic, the process to find and recruit a fabulous iOS developer was very easy. Rather than sifting through hundreds of CVs, we saw two and hired them. They have worked effectively, getting up to speed incredibly quickly and have almost become part of the team. We would definitely use Toptal again. ”
James O'Day
“As a small company with limited resources we can't afford to make expensive mistakes. Toptal provided us with an experienced programmer who was able to hit the ground running and begin contributing immediately. It has been a great experience and one we'd repeat again in a heartbeat.”
Stuart Pocknee
Principal @ Site Specific Software Solutions
“Working with Marcin is a joy, I can't find a better word. He is competent, professional, flexible, and extremely quick to understand what is required -- and to implement it -- even if the source code that's given to him is, shall we say, less than optimally elegant and clear. Oh and he has the same sense of humour as me. ;)”
André Fischer
CTO @ App Promotions
“Back in July '12, FundedByMe needed to quickly scale our development team to create the equity crowdfunding leg of our operation. Working with a small budget, we couldn't spend time on vetting candidates, so we turned to Toptal. They identified a stellar developer that truly set the bar when it came to delivering product.”
Arno Smit
CTO @ FundedByMe.com
“We've been incredibly pleased with our experience working with Toptal thus far. Their team worked quickly and efficiently to isolate the needs of our project, and they paired us with an appropriate developer within a couple days who we quickly contracted after a great interview. The work performed on our project was top-notch, and we can’t wait to make use of Toptal’s resources again.”
Ryan Staake
Owner @ Pomp&Clout
“Toptal is amazing! Sourcing and interviewing candidates has always been incredibly cumbersome and difficult - and usually takes weeks or months to find the right people. With Toptal, we had 5 candidates in 2 days that were all perfect for the job. They made the scheduling of interviews easy and straightforward and we were working with a top-level bad-ass developer within 2 weeks. I love you, Toptal.”
