Top Development Outsourcing Vendors?

I am looking for a top talent software development vendor, have worked with some vendors from guru.com and elance.com, 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)?

PLEASE JUST SEND ASAD YOUR SALES PITCHES DIRECTLY. IT'S REALLY PRETTY BAD FORM TO SPAM EVERYONE.

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.

If you find a source of developers that are consistently better than Elance but work for the same price, please do them the favor of telling them to increase their rates.

(And if you find someone who tells you they can do this, ask yourself why they don't charge more. There may be a good reason, but caveat emptor.)

Pretty sure I've seen this discussion 5-10 on founderdating alone - did you do a search and not like the results >> http://members.founderdating.com/discuss/topic/Outsourcing. Good to follow the topic too I find.

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.

As a matter of fact our collective business model www.thebauhub.com is doing just that. We bring senior, vetted, professionals who are most ex-agency or big dev houses into one collective talent pool. We create ad-hoc mini agencies for each project (big or small). Call my office at 416-840-6585 anytime and I will see what we can do to help put a team together for you.

Hi, I run an outsource development shop from our SF HQ. All of our studios are located in Eastern Europe (17 studios) and I will be happy to discuss your needs further. Our rates are about half of what you will see in US and the development and design talent is amazing. Ilya ilya.lipovich@getcider.com ᐧ

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.
