OUR STORY
"X-Team is from the future."

There's no shortage of ways to hire developers today, from talent marketplaces to agencies and beyond.

But for companies like Riot Games, Coinbase, Intel, Sony, Fox, Beachbody and many more leading brands that have partnered with X-Team since 2006, what matters most is having a solution that they can confidently scale with for the long-term.

They don't need short-term 'hired guns' or engineers they'll have to replace in a few months. They want to focus on building their product, not sitting in interviews or scrambling to replace people.

X-Team is that long-term, painfree solution for the modern engineering department. For 15 years, we've been providing high-performing, on-demand and scalable teams for leading brands.

Our teams range from 1-100+ engineers from 55+ countries, and are filled with people who take ownership, have a long-term mindset, are passionately curious, and have an unstoppable forward-moving energy that drives them.

And that forward-moving energy adds up, allowing us to have the most energizing, inspiring and fulfilling community for developers that exists today.

Check out our Glassdoor, blog or YouTube channel to get a taste of just how much positive energy and value can be found in our community. Our innovative experiences, rewards systems, global events, X-Outposts, endless perks, exclusive collectibles line and constant value we provide represent our commitment to reinvesting more than any other company into the value we give back to our teams of engineers.

All of this has resulted in a 98% voluntary retention rate among our engineers, a statistic unheard of in our market and key to what's allowed us to partner with companies like Fox Broadcasting for more than a decade.

Looking back on these past 15 years, I'm reminded of our favorite one-line testimonial from Twitter's co-founder, Biz Stone: "X-Team is from the future."

We've never forgotten that quote, as it fuels and inspires us every day. To be forever forward, forever alive. To keep innovating. To keep driving value for our developers and partners. To keep the flame in our bellies alive.

And, most importantly, to keep moving forward.
