Freelancing, TopTal style

Today, a fellow Venezuelan programmer talked to me about a freelancing site called TopTal. I have to admit that I've never heard about them until today, but following the council of my friend, I decided to give it a try.

TopTal is a Web Programmer Community that brings together big companies with the best freelance programmers out there. The sign up process, from the actual flow, to the clean, clear and minimalist UX, already caught my attention from the start.  The process was straight forward, but something in the way they handle new applicants told me these people were really serious about getting the right kind of professionals.

I am now waiting for the first screening call, and it's exciting to see the kind of projects I could work on through their platform.  Programming should be not only about getting the work done, but also to actually have fun while doing it, and I believe TopTal could be a place where I can find the kind of projects I love to work on.

My previous experiences with freelancing sites were mostly disappointing, because they were like a jungle where freelancers competed on lower fares instead of better quality.   Most of the hirers didn't cared about quality, but about paying less as possible for the work they needed.  TopTal, on the other hand, seems to focus on quality at both sides of the equation, bringing together great companies with top-of-the-line programmers, all over the world, focusing on excellency.

So, if you are a seasoned programmer, focused on quality and proud of your craft, go and apply on TopTal and join others that shares your same passion about good and beautiful code.
