2015 Freelance engineer marketplace Toptal now sells designers


Toptal, the site that helps to find high quality engineers, is now routing designers with spare cycles to companies in need. Meanwhile Toptal takes job requirements from companies looking for a freelancer, negotiates a budget, and vets them too. By evaluating both sides prevents anyone from having a “shitty experience”. Confident both sides are legit, Toptal matches them up. Rather than making the hirer sort through dozens of resumes, Toptal sends them on average just 1.7 choices of coders before the client signs a contract. Client pays Toptal, Toptal pays the freelancer, and Toptal pockets the difference.  With a supply of thousands of engineers, Toptal now works with about 2,000 clients from J.P. Morgan and Pfizer to Airbnb and Zendesk to fledgling startups.
