On a day to day basis, there is a sense that we are working towards a grand, achievable vision at X8. I’m proud to be part of an organization that is making strides every day toward making that vision a reality. I’m proud to be a part of the challenges, decisions, initiatives and growth of the company, and having fun while doing it!
X8 has built a team of people with deep experience who have good ideas and the freedom to implement them. You’re not just one member of a team of developers. Your input is valued and you’re able to make an impact on the defense and future security of our nation. It’s nice to work in a company where everyone has earned their experience and credibility and is trusted to do the work that needs to be done. I feel like I have something to contribute and I can make a difference.
I wanted to work with a smart, clever group of people who are humble about it. The company is very employee centric with a lot of opportunity to mold and shape our careers. We have the opportunity to create or develop something new unlike at larger companies where you’re shoehorned to one particular job. We have the flexibility to run with ideas and they support us along the way.
The support is the best part of working at X8. We’re a group of high-speed individuals who are always willing to step in and assist each other on projects. Whether someone has an emergency, just needs another view, or is called away to service in the reserves, we support each other. We all feel comfortable leaving our projects with our co-workers who are fully capable of doing what’s necessary to keep the work moving along. It’s great knowing that I can depend on any of them for help. We all respect each other and want to help each other progress forward in our projects and our careers.
