The Topcoder Marketplace is where a global community of experts works with organizations around the world to accelerate innovation, increase bandwidth, and tap into hard-to-find expertise on demand. The Topcoder Community includes over one million of the world’s top designers, developers, and data scientists from almost every country in the world.
In 2001 Topcoder was launched by a brazen technologist who happened to be an avid chess player. His question: Could we create a transparent and reputable rating system for developers akin to the famous ranking method used in the world of Chess? And if so, could top developers be accessed on demand to make getting technology work done faster and easier? What was deemed a crazy idea in 2001 is now simply known as crowdsourcing.
What began as a community for coders focused on algorithms has grown into the world's top competitive technology community that spans the entire software development lifecycle. Top designers, top developers, and top algorithmists call Topcoder home along with passionate individuals from across the globe who come to Topcoder to gain new skills and learn from the best. We are 1 million members strong and growing faster than ever before.
Topcoder is already the premier destination to get crowdsourced work accomplished, but we aren't resting on our laurels. We're continuously adding tools that make execution easier, expanding our communities reach and accessibility through an open API strategy, and we're actively shepherding our members to the newest technologies and trends shaping our digital futures.
