Who is X-Team meant for?
A potential X-Teamer is a freelance developer with experience working on large-scale, remote teams and projects. They are self-motivated, proactive, and have a strong team spirit. If you’re tired of the traditional freelancing platforms, you’ll be happy to hear that we’re so much more. X-Team is a community of like-minded individuals, carefully chosen to ensure that they can become part of the community of the most motivated people in the world who come together to unleash their potential. What we’ve created is truly special and not merely a faceless platform. X-Team is where developers go to feel truly at home together while becoming more motivated than they’ve ever been.
How long does your vetting/interview process take?
It varies depending on our immediate needs and how quickly you respond to our questions and requests. On average, it takes 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 potentially good fit, rather than waste your time having you jump through unnecessary hoops.
Will I get a job immediately after applying?
If your skills, experience, and values align with a current opening we have, your chances of getting hired immediately are high. If we discover you’re qualified, but all opportunities have been taken, we’ll continue to work with you to help you get a role in X-Team. The key is having the most relevant, in-demand skills when you apply.
