How we can help
Dedicated Development Team
For almost a decade X1 Group helps technology startups to ramp up their products and businesses by establishing dedicated software development teams for them in our development center in Ukraine.

With Dedicated Development Team at X1 you'll get the benefit of having your own team of IT professionals but without stress of recruitment, onboarding, hardware, infrastructure, retention, administration - all of that, and much more, will be on us.
Remote R&D Office
If you look to establish your own R&D Office in Eastern Europe we can offer our support in getting together all parts of your own office. Including legal assistance, team recruitment and onboarding, hardware and infrastructure, retention and HR management, office branding and management.

You retain full control over your office and team while we'll do all the administration and maintenance for you.
Recruiting On-site
Want to extend existing in-house IT team or build a new one from scratch? We got you covered. X1 Group can help you with recruitment of software engineers to your own on-site team.
