An Insider's view of XSELL Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

The XSELLies is the must-attend event of the year! Think of a collab between high school yearbook superlatives, the Dundies, and inside jokes between coworkers - all on a red carpet event. With drinks in hand and music blaring, this is truly a time to celebrate our wins together as a company and appreciate all the people who got us to this spot!

What projects are you most excited about?

One of our most exciting projects is getting to work through the teams' goals and initiatives for the upcoming year. Getting to collaborate with the best and brightest to come up with a vision for where we want to take the company is so energizing and motivating! It's very stimulating to think through how we can all best support each other.
