Toptal boasts a wide array of the industry’s elite tech and business talent, but it is unlike many other staffing agencies. Most of their talent works remote, and draws from across the world. Initially conceived as freelance marketplace, Toptal has evolved as a preferred staffing destination for leading Fortune 500 companies to bring in the very best. Toptal began with only tech experts, but, over the years, they expanded their network to include finance experts, designers, and more.
Companies are paired with a talent matcher who then finds the best talent for that company, working on hourly, part-time or full-time contracts. If a company needs the best on-site, Toptal can arrange for its contractors to visit, meet the team and then create a strategic plan from there to get the work done.

FAQ

What is a staffing agency?
Staffing agencies are contracted on behalf of companies to do recruiting and talent acquisition for them. Staffing agencies often have a large pool of candidates to draw from, giving them access to more talent than an HR department may have on their own. The staffing agencies want to make a great match with qualified candidates and the company, boosting their own success rates and becoming a trusted partner for the company and worker.
How do you calculate the scores for each company?
Our algorithm focuses on four main metrics: brand, trust, reviews, and user experience. This algorithm is constantly being updated to ensure the best results for your needs.
How do staffing agencies work?
Staffing agencies will talk with the hiring company to understand their priorities, their open positions and what type of hire they are looking for, such as full-time, part-time, or temp to hire. Many staffing agencies are now offering remote positions for employees and companies that are open to flexible work arrangements.
How do I choose a staffing agency?
Before choosing a staffing an agency, consider the role that needs to be filled. Is it a specialist with senior level credentials? Then you may want to consider a recruiting firm or headhunter. An admin assistant? A staffing agency specializing in manufacturing will not be as much help. The point is, you may need several different staffing agencies to fill your roles depending on what the position requires.
Why should I hire a staffing agency?
Hiring does not look the same across companies. Many companies come to staffing agencies for temporary and seasonal work, but there is more to it than that. There are part-time needs, full-time needs and specialized contract work. A dedicated staffing agency who understands your company objectives will help you make the right decisions and source great talent.
What's the risk of hiring a bad staffing agency?
This is a good question. Staffing agencies will not always know your product or brand so they may not give you the best candidates. That is why it's impotant to find the best fit for you. Look for a staffing agency that thoroughly vets their candidates, offers assessments and can verify the skills of thei candidates will help you mitigate the risk of hiring a bad staffing agency.
