Work on incredible projects.
Unleash your potential.
It varies depending on our immediate needs and how quickly you respond to our questions and requests. On average, it can take 1-3 weeks.More importantly though, after a decade of interviewing developers, we've learned how important it is to respect people's time. We will only ever ask for more of your time if we think you are a potential good fit, rather than waste your time going through unnecessary hoops.
At our core, we are a developer-centric company. Once you join one of our partner teams, both our core team and our community will be there to support you every step of the way. Our developers often tell us how much they appreciate being part of such a supportive community of people motivating one another to learn, grow and unleash their potential.
The X-Team community is filled with opportunities to help you stay motivated, keep learning and growing, and focus on your mental/physical health. We also provide every developer with a $2,500/year budget to support those opportunities, spendable on anything from a gym membership, courses, conferences, massages, productivity apps, video games, and much more. It’s an entirely different atmosphere at X-Team than any other developer community.
Our community is also often meeting together at conferences and meetups (as well as our roaming hackerhouse, the X-Outpost).
When it comes to working with our partners, all you have to worry about is executing great work for them and then we handle the rest. We even pay our developers on a bi-weekly basis, which is pretty unheard of.
Each team in X-Team operates differently. Generally though, most teams work in an agile style with some form of daily standup (whether synchronous or asynchronous), a PM tool like Jira, and a TDD workflow.Specifics regarding other team members, such as project managers or designers, will always vary, but all X-Teamers can attest to being on well-managed projects and teams.
When we have an opportunity to offer you, we'll discuss what time overlap our partner is looking for. That said, X-Team places a high priority on respectful, flexible scheduling and makes that clear to our partners before working with them.
Three scenarios can happen when a project comes to an end:
1. We'll line up another opportunity for you to move on to after your current project ends. This is actually the most common scenario and what we'll be aiming for once you join our community.
2. So long as you've committed to learning and growing and have kept your skills current throughout your time in X-Team, we will continue investing in you and keep you onboard for up to 3 months until we have a new opportunity for you. Other developer communities don't invest in you like this, but it's important to us.
3. If your skillset no longer aligns with what companies are looking for on their teams, we'll part ways until we're able to offer you a new opportunity that aligns well with your experience. This isn't as common in X-Team, as we work hard to motivate you to always be learning and growing so that your skills will always remain marketable.
We're most interested in developers who could begin work no later than a month out, but we can start the vetting process ahead of time as well.
Currently no, but we'd certainly love to someday.
All X-Team positions are full-time.
