Who is X-Team meant for?
- Any freelance developers with experience working on high-scale, remote teams and projects with a motivated, proactive attitude and compassionate, team-player heart. If you've worked with freelancing platforms before, that's not what we are. X-Team is a community of all likeminded people, carefully chosen to ensure we are able to create an environment of the most motivated people in the world who come together to unleash their potential. What we've created is truly special and not a faceless platform. X-Team is where developers go to feel truly at home together, while becoming more motivated than they've ever been.

- We are hiring for Java developers to fill some exciting new opportunities we have. We're also hiring for a variety of other skills, such as PHP, React, React Native, Cryptocurrency/blockchain, Node.js, Salesforce, DevOps, and Golang.
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.
What kind of opportunities do you provide?
- We provide full-time opportunities that last, on average, for 10 months. After your role ends (and so long as you've performed well), we continue to give you work internally with us until we find you a new opportunity. This ensures that X-Team can be a stable work option for you as a freelancer.
