For years now, we have been helping X-Teamers achieve personal goals and develop their passions while also helping them grow professionally. This is just a tiny glimpse info how we do it.
Intro For many of our developers, X-Team is not only a place of work but also — and perhaps even first and foremost — a vibrant community that boosts their growth and encourages to expand and share their various passions and interests. Animating remote communities is challenging, but we pride ourselves on constantly innovating in ways of keeping our developers engaged, motivated, satisfied and growing their skills and productivity. Three years ag
It may be a cliché, but are not clichés the oldest wisdom? “Traveling is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer.” I am glad to be a member of a community that cultivates values of exploring various corners of the Earth. X-Team supports this by organizing the so called X-Outposts. I had the greatest pleasure of attending a few of those, but the X-Outpost: Thailand still remains the one that has had the biggest impact on me. ... I
"Eternal glory! That is what awaits the House that wins the Triunleasher Tournament. However, to do this, that House must overcome a number of trials. Trials that demand skill and courage." — Jakubus Dobrandore, introducing the Triunleasher Tournament A challenge for a fully remote company When you have a physical office, social interactions are easier.

Someone once said that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Scottish highlands, endless meadows of the greenest grass, and hills with their proud peaks crowned by snow-white clouds take your breath away just by looking at them, leaving you in a speechless awe. Last week, I experienced this myself, together with one of my Unleashees, Piotr, and his Celtman Crew—the team I had the gre
Welcome to the jungle Navigating the realm of web technologies may sometimes feel like exploring a jungle, especially for those who have just begun their journey. Abundance of programming languages, frameworks, libraries - even though exciting and challenging - sometimes makes one wonder: how and where do I start, since the most valuable resources are scattered around the web? At X-Team, we have developed a program solely devoted to accelerating
A look into the past… Just a year ago, our Unleash program was no more than an idea, a beautiful concept, a seed we wanted to plant in the, so to speak, fertile ground of X-Team’s amazing community. It offered our developers the opportunity to unleash their potential by giving them all the help they needed to learn and grow. And today, looking back on the past year, I am truly amazed at how much has been achieved; how the seed, from being just an
“Instead of showing up to let everyone know how great we are, show up to find out how great everyone else is.” Simon Sinek And so I did show up. Part of my job as Developer Unleasher is to travel around the world to meet with X-Teamers, to know them better, to learn about their characters, traits, dreams, passions, talents and skills first-hand. Why would I do that? Why would I sometimes jump on a plane and fly to the other side of the planet to
