About

Even a decade ago, working remotely was something that was considered weird, unprofessional. People often presumed that those who say that they are working remotely are really slackers, spending their days drinking coctails on beaches and really not doing anything else. Others thought that working remotely leads to a lower quality of work, worse accountability, and a generally low level of reliability.

Not today, though. With the prerequisite infrastructure being built all over the planet, and with more and more work being location-independent, working remotely has become a realistic and reliable choice.

Even more, at X-Team, we have turned remote work into a way of life.

High Expectations

All of X-Team is remote, from the CEO to the most recent hire. The whole company is run through several tools, at the center of which is Slack with several custom-built integrations and bots. There is only one way we can do this and keep up our cohesion and quality — a huge part of our recruitment process is discovering culture fit for remote work. A person can be an outstanding software engineer, but they cannot fall short on the 3 core characteristics of a good remote work partner...

Communication

There can be absolutely no surprise breaks in communication. We specifically screen for people who show great communication skills. They have to be open to regular check-ins and proactive when it comes to letting the client know what they are working on at the moment, about any issues they might be experiencing, or about anything else that might impact their performance.

But we do not just rely on unstructured communication. All X-Teamers keep work journals, in which they detail their progress, issues, thoughts, and anything else pertaining to their projects. This journal is updated daily and always accessible to our clients, so they can see exactly what the current work-status is, even beyond just the client's internal ticket/issue tracking system.

Reliability

X-Teamers are experienced professionals who know how to give realistic estimates and live up to them, and, should that turn out to be impossible due to some unforeseen complication, you will be kept in the loop throughout the problem-solving process.

Furthermore, despite the fact that they might be in a very different time zone from your team, our developers will join that stand-up, be it 3 AM or PM. We know only one timezone, and that is our client's.

Barring exceptional cases, our developers will also schedule their vacations at least a month in advance, so you have nothing to worry about.

Team-Play

Be it as a leader or member of a team, X-Teamers play extremely well with others. There are constant trainings and events within X-Team which facilitate the developers' cooperation and leadership skills, and with us preselecting for people that are excellent teamplayers in the first place, you will get a very good new teammate.

Our remote developers are also happy to hop on a plane and fly out to wherever your office might be located to meet you and your team and work there for a period of time to crush that last sprint.

Conclusion

While you may still be a bit reserved about taking remote developers on to your team, we encourage you to contact us and simply talk to us. We promise we will assuage your doubts and provide you with the best bunch of developers you can get.
