Toptal reviews from startup founders

Toptal is good in emergencies. It’s a great tool, but it’s expensive. If you’re in a pinch and you need to get something done ASAP, they’re a good resource. The first week is risk-free and they don’t charge you a dime, which is a nice feature. They have exceptional talent, but again, it’s very expensive. If you want to convert someone to full-time, they have extremely high buyout fees.

We use Toptal, and those people are rock stars. They operate all over the world, and are very strict. They interviewed us and checked our code before sending anyone to us. And during the first week with any new developer, if you don’t like them, you don’t pay for that week. Their process is extremely strict, and the outcome has been outstanding.
