The Xccelerated Story


Proud offshoot of Xebia and GoDataDriven

Xccelerated, the proud offshoot of Xebia and GoDataDriven, was established to eliminate the shortage of highly skilled data scientists, data engineers and cloud engineers.

We’re a focused, values-based, Agile organization, just like our parent company. In fact, Xebia was the first in the Netherlands to completely adapt and introduce the Agile way of working. Today, we’re one of Xebia Group’s eight, specialized, interlinked companies of passionate technologists and pioneering craftspeople. You can expect knowledgeable, in-depth expertise underlined by an authentic and innovative way of working in everything we do.

People first

You grow. We grow. By putting people first, we foster an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust, and responsibility, where everything else grows naturally.

Sharing knowledge

Sharing knowledge is what we do. We believe in transparency in all our communications, open collaborations, sharing information and insights, to help others grow in their knowledge.

Quality without compromise

From the people we hire to the work we deliver to the coffee we serve—we never compromise on quality.

Customer intimacy

We do everything we can to create partnerships based on mutual trust and common goals. We then build on these relationships by consistently adding value. In other words, we’re here for the long-term.

The Xccelerated Team

We’ve been around long enough to notice something was missing.

Each member of our core team brings a unique specialty and passion to our shared mission: empowering both young professionals and ambitious companies to achieve their full data potential.

We also currently have twenty-three data science and data engineering Xccelerators who have taken on the most challenging data-driven projects at our partner companies - growing their skills and careers, while having fun in the process.
