Toptal is an amazing company. They've got over 2,500 developers and designers in their network.  They've screened them extensively so that you get to work with the top 3% of developers and designers. So basically what happens is that you let Toptal know what type of developer or designer you're looking for, they understand your business and technical requirements and they search for the right person for you.

You don't have to do all the screening and interviews that you normally would and they make it really easy for you. You can even do part time hires that are a few hours a week or full time hires as well. 

If you want to get connected to them, send me a note at and I can personally introduce you to my friend Nelson. He's a VP at Toptal who will make sure you get an amazing experience. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
