WE ARE YOUR CAVALRY.

X-Team is a development company that’s spent the last decade building a community of motivated PHP programmers, architects and consultants from around the world. Today, we provide our developers (individually or as a team) to companies that need help scaling, outsourcing their software projects or leading their development teams with top PHP developers.

TRUSTED BY LEADING BRANDS.

They really care about their developers and I could tell that from the very beginning. I feel like X-Team shows a lot of love and, in turn, that gets brought back to our company as well.

— Danielle Chircop, Kaplan Inc.

What makes X-Team's PHP developers unique?

Communication

The success of any team or product is incredibly dependent on how good their communication is. Without communication that is frequent and consistent, while also setting (and resetting) the right expectations, deadlines simply don't get hit.

We recognize this and have set communication as a priority with our developers. We use a decade's worth of knowledge and remote development techniques that we've created to master this skill.

Here's what it can be like when you hire PHP engineers from a marketplace site:

Compared to what it's like working with an X-Team PHP developer:

Culture

With a language as popular as PHP, it's quite common to find PHP programmers who are either poorly trained or have become comfortable and are no longer motivated to keep growing their skills.

A comfortable PHP developer is one who probably hasn't learned much about new back-end or front-end frameworks, like Symfony & Laravel in PHP or Angular & React in JavaScript. They also likely haven't made an attempt to become an expert at Docker or AWS to improve their devops skills.

X-Teamers are different, as X-Team's PHP developers make an effort to keep themselves motivated and always finding ways to learn and grow. We only hire people who have proven they share this same attitude.

We also have a team of Unleashers who are dedicated to individually helping each of our PHP experts continue to unleash their potential by keeping them motivated like a personal trainer.

We build true partnerships.

Not only are we obsessed with the success and growth of our PHP programmers, we're also dedicated to the success of our partners.

That's why at X-Team we build partnerships with our clients, a relationship that ensures we are always available to help you scale your team of PHP developers and ensure their success.

All of our partners have dedicated account managers whose sole purpose is to work with you every step of the way. The level of attention we give to both our partners and our developers is unparalleled in our market and is something we're proud of.
