I have the pleasure of being a part of an incredible community. Yes, this is how I think most of us perceive X-Team. However, the issue with remote communities is that you do not see its members on daily basis; opportunities to integrate are limited, despite using Slack or Hangouts. Nothing replaces a real-life hand-shake, right? It is cool to be able to talk to each other remotely, but I think this is not enough to create the much-needed social

It is not about saying "I don’t have time." What is Unleash? It is a tool for everyone to grab and start working on yourself. It is a method to start achieving all those things you have always kept safe on your bucket list. It is a revolution. Working at X-Team as a Developer Unleasher taught me several things. However, most importantly it opened my eyes to a simple fact: You have a natural ability to find a million excuses in a fractu

I recently got to participate in a workshop for job-seekers. I was there to share my experience with the Unleash process and relevant details from my own background. Little did I know that this would turn out to be such a complex topic for so many. Both 19- and 59-year-olds in the group simply could not seem to grasp, or perhaps believe, how simple the process of acquiring a whole new skill-set can actually be. So this is what I told them: It doe

"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. Even if on different projects, (most of the) company members work in one place, ofte

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

It has been 10 months now, since I joined X-Team. Ten months of extraordinary experiences, of new friendships, and of interesting work. Now, I am here to tell you about some of the things X-Team does, which keep its people happy, and, more importantly, sane, while so many others are battling burnout on a daily basis. This blog has grown on the basis of a talk I recently gave at WebCamp Ljubljana. The content is similar but not identical, so if y

We've decided to start a series of blog posts about the paths that our developers have taken as part of our Unleash program and their journey thus far. As the first example, I’d like to introduce you to one of the most humble and passionate developers I’ve ever worked with. This is the Unleash story of Mr. Kelvin De Moya. The humble beginnings I remember starting my work as an Unleasher in X-Team at the beginning of 2016 and Kelvin was one of the

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

My two kids Leonardo and Eduardo and I walking in the forest near from our house. When I became an X-Teamer, I was able to bring wife, two sons and dogs to live in Ubatuba, a beautiful place in Brazil filled with more than 100 beaches. Why could I do this? Because now I could work from anywhere. It’s seriously amazing. And soon after I had arrived, I met people that were already involved in very interesting movements related to a vast variety of
