Toptal (http://www.toptal.com/) is a global network of top software engineers and designers. Toptal works with clients to understand their project/team needs and custom-matches them with pre-screened developers and designers who join their teams on a full-time, part-time, or hourly basis.
Toptal has worked with over 2,000 clients (http://www.toptal.com/clients) to date and is on track for $80M in revenue in 2015. Toptal clients include Airbnb, J.P. Morgan, Zendesk, Artsy, IDEO, Pfizer, and many more.
The Toptal network includes thousands of developers and designers in over 93 countries. To be accepted into the network, all Toptal freelancers must pass a screening process (http://www.toptal.com/top-3-percent) that includes tests for English and communication skills and a variety of technical exams specific to the applicant's area of expertise, for example timed algorithm tests, live coding exercises, and test projects.
Toptal frequently publishes software engineering articles on the Toptal Engineering Blog (http://www.toptal.com/blog) and design articles on the Toptal Design Blog (http://www.toptal.com/designers/blog). The Toptal community is also extremely active (http://www.toptal.com/community), and is the driving force for the Toptal Global Mentors Program (https://www.toptal.com/global-mentors), a large-scale initiative aimed at improving diversity in the tech industry.
