Can't watch the video right now? Read the transcript below. Something strange happens when you can work from anywhere. It gives you the ultimate gift -- true freedom, freedom to plan out your day, to live anywhere in the world, to go anywhere at any time, to go to the gym finally, to achieve the goals you've put off for so long. We ascend to the dream way of living and working, and yet...why is it so hard to capitalize on it? Why is it when you [...]

Hello world! That seems to be the first line every young developer tries to do, but it has many other meanings for a remote developer. We meet people from all over the world — clients, colleagues, providers — and that gives us the opportunity to share thoughts, experiences, ways of thinking and more. For example, I am from Argentina, and I have the opportunity to work every day with people from Denmark, Uruguay, the U.S, Russia, Ireland, Poland, [...]

We are proud to be some of the most motivated developers in the world. However, getting motivated and staying that way is not easy. We make a lot of effort in the X-Team community to keep motivation high. For many remote developers, the biggest motivation killer is burnout and overworking. With so few distractions and such immense focus, you can end up working 10 hours without ever getting up. To combat this in X-Team, we created Fit-Quest. Fit-Q [...]

Getting a job as a remote developer is dependent on many factors, but by far one of the most important is how you present yourself in your video interview. You might be thinking, “What does that have to do with how good my code is?” It is a valid question, and I agree — it should not matter that much. If you code best in your running t-shirt from 1991, or you are most productive in a basement with terrible lighting, that really should not matter [...]

This article came about after suffering from back trouble in 2013–2014, specifically Sciatica, due to a restrictive Psoas (iliopsoas) muscle. The Psoas muscle is deeply routed and connected to physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. More about the Psoas in a future post. Back trouble stemming from the Psoas muscle affected me greatly at that time and was worsened by sitting at a desk for work. This motivated me, as a yoga instructor, to fi [...]

You say to-may-to, we say to-mah-to. But recently, X-Teamers had the opportunity to pick the brain of a guy, who dedicated quite some time these last few years to study of productivity... and he does not say either of those. He says, pomodoro! We are talking, of course, about Karol Sojko. A developer, Unleasher, and a master of productivity, who also recently held a talk at the 4Developers 2017 conference, titled Unleashing Your Super-dev-powers [...]

India is the second most populated country in the world and holds the 2nd highest population of developers in the world. Yet, it's one of the least popular places for digital nomads. Nomadlist ranks its capital, New Delhi, at #605 (out of 651). ==So then, what's it like being a nomad in India? X-Teamer Paul McCrodden spent 6 weeks throughout India as a nomad. == Here's what he had to say about the trip in our #travel channel AMA: What was your fa [...]

Despite what people may tell you, you don't need an office to create an incredibly satisfied, fulfilled and, ultimately, happy team. I know this because every week when I read the feedback we get from our remote team spread across 30 countries, it usually looks like this: "Even though we are all remote, I never felt as close to a team as this one." - Henrique B. I've been building happy teams remotely since I was 10-years-old using the [...]
