Why should you use crowdsourcing?

Progress in today’s digital world happens in days and weeks, not months and years. We can help you move faster to get more done.



If you are not thinking of your next big move, someone else is. Use the crowd to uncover innovative solutions that you can execute with confidence.

Gain the speed, agility and capability you need to win in today’s digital world.

How does crowdsourcing work?

Do you run faster alone or when you’re in a race? Topcoder is fueled by competition. Experts from across the globe compete in challenges by submitting their best work. You receive the best, winning solutions.

What can you get done?

Design and develop amazing consumer apps. Optimize critical algorithms. Modernize your business applications. Even build your own custom technology community.

Customer Stories

eBay Inc.

eBay wanted to develop a hybrid mobile application that would allow executives the ability to quickly request IT technical service help, and it needed to be dead simple to use.

“The fact that there is this quality of engineers all over the world, it really made me re-think how I resource projects.”

Marc Kocher
Sr. Manager, Engineering

Brivo Labs

Brivo Labs had an Internet of Things vision. To create and unleash a new identity management API that would allow the world to access physical places through social credentials seamlessly. Once the API was created, they needed amazing applications to show it off. They got it all done through crowdsourcing.

“How would we have been able to develop it (properly) in the amount of time we did –  months, not years – if we didn’t have the power of the crowd? We wouldn’t have. We’d probably be in the process of figuring it out still.”

Lee Odess
VP, Marketing and Enterprise Sales


Honeywell Building Solutions wanted an application that reimagined mobility in the workforce, untethering humans from command control centers while brilliantly visualizing real-time data analytics. Part IoT, part Salesforce platform, part data analytics – all good.

“What Appirio gave us is a totally new way to think about the problem, a different way to address our challenge and come up with a solution that’s equally creative and satisfies a customer need.”

Datta Godbole
CTO Honeywell


When you combine the productivity of a calendar tool with the power and connectivity of a social network, you get Jibe!, the native app platform from Mobius. Their team used AppXpress, Topcoder’s self-service crowdsourcing offering to sprint to beta while staying on budget.

“When we wanted to refine the UI of Jibe!, we chose AppXpress because it gave us access to top talent designers at a speed and cost we couldn’t find elsewhere. Within two weeks, we had high quality final design submissions, which has helped us get ready for beta launch.”

Michael Neves
Co-founder, Platform Development at Mobius
