Scaling a development team is a headache: it's time-consuming, costly, and comes without the guarantee that you'll hire developers you can trust.

We created X-Team over a decade ago to solve these challenges and help leading companies scale quickly with developers who drive projects forward.

Who We Are

Ever since 2006, X-Team has provided high-performing, on-demand teams of experienced developers for leading brands. We're a remote-first company, which means we can draw from a much bigger pool of talent to provide you with the right developers for your projects. Here's what a team of X-Team developers gives you:

  • Availability. X-Team has developers across 50+ countries. This means that we can accommodate any time zone requirements you have, whether that's a team on a single timezone or a team spread across the world to maximize productivity. We’re here for you day and night, quite literally.
  • Speed. Ramping up a newly hired developer takes a long time. X-Team will provide a team of experienced developers familiar with your tech stack (or the tech stack you want to use) who will start adding value immediately. Instantly augment your engineering teams with specialized skills.
  • Flexibility. With X-Team, you can easily scale your team to adapt to your needs. We are your cavalry, and our on-demand, high-performing teams are always ready to help you.
  • Motivation. X-Team has built a remote culture that motivates, inspires, and encourages our developers to keep on growing. One such example is Unleash+, a $2,500 a year budget every developer receives to spend on doing whatever energizes them and helps them lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
  • Integration. You retain full control over the direction of your projects. X-Teamers integrate seamlessly into your team and will follow your instructions, while also leaning on their experience to give you recommendations where appropriate.

What We Believe In

We always knew that we wanted to help build a world where opportunity isn't dependent on where you live, but on the value you create. That meant remote work. But it also meant coming up with a list of values to stick by every step of the way. Here are some of the most important X-Team values:

  • We believe that energized, motivated developers drive projects forward more consistently than their peers. That's why we go far to support them in maintaining a healthy, energized life, whether that's through funding or through our unparalleled community experience.
  • We believe that remote work is the unavoidable future. It allows us to hire the best developers, wherever they are in the world, and it gives those developers the freedom to work from wherever they want and live a more energized and fulfilling life.
  • We believe in being responsible global citizens. Every year, we donate a significant portion of our profits to various charities. We also teach tech skills to people from underprivileged countries and we've committed ourselves to become a carbon-neutral company by the end of 2020.
  • We believe that a diverse and inclusive community will lead to diverse and inclusive software too. That's why we strive to make X-Team as welcoming and empowering as possible, regardless of race, religion, gender, or nationality.

What Others Say

X-Team has built partnerships with many leading brands across a wide variety of industries, from entertainment to education and beyond. Think Fox, Dell, Riot Games, Twitter, Kaplan, Coinbase, Beachbody, and others. We can provide experienced teams of developers regardless of your tech stack. Here are a few case studies that go in detail about the work X-Team does for its partners:

What Else Is There?

The above is only a snippet of what X-Team can deliver to you. While this page isn't meant to discuss the details of everything we provide to our partners, here's a short list of other things that our partners have come to love about X-Team:

  • Flexible contracts. We make it easy for you. Our contracts are flexible and billed on a monthly basis. This gives you the ability to easily scale your needs up or down as business requires.
  • A dedicated account manager. Once you start working with us, we will provide you with a dedicated account manager at no extra cost. You can rest at ease knowing you have a direct contact at all times to resolve any issues or scale up your team.
  • 12+ years of experience. We've spent more than a decade fine-tuning every aspect of what we do, from our hiring to how we keep our developers energized with our innovative community experience. No one has been as committed to scaling engineering teams for as long as we have. And if you're wondering how X-Team differs from companies like Toptal and Gigster, have a look at our Toptal comparison page.
  • Consistency. When you hire an X-Teamer, you know what you’re getting – someone who is proactive, energized and drives projects forward, every day. This consistent experience is what allowed us to retain Fortune 500 companies for over a decade.
