Hear From Our Clients

Ehsan Shariati

Functionland (Toronto, ON, Canada)

We used Winatalent for our react-native project at Functionland, and really happy that I gave it a try. We had used Upwork and Freelancer with 4 unsuccessful attempts for the same project before turning to Winatalent. The level of expertise we received from the developer was much higher than what we got from other platforms for the same amount of money. Moreover, the personalized support we received from their team during the process was invaluable. I extremely recommend using Winatalent and will definitely use it for my future projects.

I am really impressed by the quality of services I received from WINaTALENT. They were right on schedule, charged reasonable prices, were professional and courteous in dealings, and delivered items well before time. Their pipeline was so smooth and simple so that everyone with any level of knowledge can be their client no matter what the project is.

It’s been a few months now that we're working with winatalent and they've been able to handle our financial transactions and payments to the talent without any problems. Also, their customer success team is very professional and responsive and I'm sure anyone working with them will be in great hands! Highly recommended.
