About X1 Group

Contribute 🚀
We value your proactiveness and contribution towards achieving our common business goals. Think and act like a founder, and then sky is the limit - for you personally and for us collectively.
Accept the challenge 🏆
We believe that everyone of us is capable of much more then he or she even think. And the best way to unveil your power is to accept the challenge and get out of your comfort zone asap.
Appreciate everything 🙌
We appreciate our team and our clients, their time, work and money. We appreciate individual contribution and joint success. We appreciate everything what we have and what we built and what is more to come.
Your ego is not your amigo 😈
We think that ego is a good one, yet not always helpful in your work. You bring more value if you're doing better or smarter, rather than just showing you're better or smarter. You admit your mistakes openly and you hear other opinions.

Those who make it all happen.
