Give us a quick overview on XB Software. When and how did you begin this journey and what were your motives to be successful in app development?
I started my way in web development 20 years ago. My first project was for HR specialists and micro tenders organization. Shortly it became clear that desktop applications would migrate to browsers. Remote web servers would become some kind of mainframes, and browsers would become kind of terminals. And we were only at the beginning of this process. Like it was 20-30 years before that. In fact, progress is cyclic, and we had to be in the forefront of a new stage. That’s how XB Software was put on the map.
Success of our company, like of any other, lies in the ability to change simultaneously with the world around us and value our employees without whom it wouldn’t be possible.

What is your role in the management and development of XB Software?
I see my role in helping the Team to progress and seek to expand the company through their professional growth in both management and development spheres. According to my experience, the best approach is to hire those whose interests and goals are close to the company’s ones and form mutually exciting goals. As wise words say: “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”
