I am looking for a top talent software development vendor, have worked with some vendors from and, but I have been mostly disappointed by their work.  I have heard of toptal and gigster, but they are expensive.  Is there anything in between, best of the both worlds (cost and talent)?

There's no such thing as 'top developers'. The software engineering community is vast; with thousands [possibly millions] of talented individuals who can understand your reqs.; design and engineer solutions. 

And, if you want laser focused responses then don't ask here; try StackOverflow, Hacker News ... or that stealth site nobody supposed to be talking about.

Take a look at Exadel; operating since 1998, with software development centers in Eastern Europe, as well as US. We develop business applications for Enterprise and mid-large companies.

Asad, I have a firm, AllCode, We have resources in Latin America, Asia, and Europe. One our clients, ConsejoSano, raised $5 mill in Series A from 7wire Ventures, Tufts Health Ventures, TOTAL Impact Capital, Wanxiang Healthcare Investments, Acumen, Oxeon Partners and Impact Engine. We built their mobile and cloud app stack from scratch. What are you looking to build? Thanks, Joel

Hi there, the topic really turned out to be quite spam. Your question is quite complicated to be honest. Could you describe in general your startup or at least a product you want to develop?

I've tried many different ways to develop an application. Freelancers - unreliable (not all), development company - expensive. Eventually, I found solution in advertisement on my mail. There was something about IT outsourcing.

I have googled and find many companies proposing outsourcing software development all over the world. Naturally such a solution also requires constant supervision and attention, but much less for me in comparison with other methods.

I went through a lot of options and I can tell you exactly what is best to look for. Pay attention and monitor Eastern Europe. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about! Cheap, fast, professional. I ordered application development from Cyber Craft. They got me an excellent small team for my tasks.

But it is not necessary to address them specifically. There are many other companies. I think you can really build a team in Eastern Europe for your specific needs for small amount of money.

By the way, have you already decided, which company to address your specific product? I think the community will be interested to know.

Good luck,


J. Hale

Dear Asad, This willn't be an objective answer, but frank. Search in Eastern Europe: Poland, Russia, Ukraine, etc.

All those sites are just spray and pray services. Everyone and anyone is on them. I have found some great people on a couple of such sites. But i had to trawl over hours and days through tenders from complete muppets - literally hundreds of them. It is real needle in a haystack stuff that brings tears to your eyes.

So instead it seems to me that sites like this should be the place. A slightly curated list of people who arent just developers, but have that something extra that makes them want to be a cofounder and give more than just a 9-5 at £25/hour.

Bill, I did look there, but did not find answer to my specific question.  I am looking to find a marketplace or a vendor (probably) which can provide top talent (build a team for my specific work) that are thoroughly vetted using rigorous industry methods.  Toptal and gigster do that, but they are expensive for startups.

Hi Asad. I agree. Sometimes achieving a good cost-quality balance is not easy. I have worked with many teams, and I'm now working with an extremely talented team of Argentinean developers who do excellent work and considering the exchange rate at a good cost. I would like to have more details about your needs so I can share more specific information about us. Feel free to message me at anytime.
