Life at X3 Builders

As a start-up, we’re extremely agile. We do what it takes to get the job done. No team member is higher than the task at hand.

We develop awesome software that drastically improves our operations, provides significant value to our clients and allows us to do much more with fewer resources. The phrase “we’ve always done it that way” doesn’t exist here. Working hard doesn’t mean we’re always working. We value productivity and results over hours behind a computer screen. We understand the importance of personal time and enjoy spending weekends with friends and family.
