About us

Driving Innovation

XL Engine spun out of Vertex Solutions – so although we are new kids on the block, we’ve been doing this for much longer…..some of us more than 15 years!! 

Set up in 2016 by Jay and Mark, we wanted to build a brand to help digital technology innovation across Europe.

We’re here for the creative minds, the innovators, the passionate and the dreamers, giving them a helping hand to achieve greatness (or at least get damn close). We’re not the type to just sit in the wings and see what happens, we love seeing what makes you tick, getting intertwined in your business and solving problems.

Working closely with the little guys, we’ve partnered with some amazing Start-ups, SME’s and Unicorns throughout Europe and we're totally privileged to be “let in” and shown the inner workings!! 


Our Stack

It works for you, why not us?

Mirroring your business, we've set up to create specialists across the Digital Stack. We know it's not a one size fits all in technology and just because you work in one industry, doesn't mean you'll stay there, so we focus on the technologies and deep dive to network with the best talent in Europe. The XL Engineers specialise in one area of the stack, however we work closely in Squads when we need to pull together.

We're building up new areas every year, with our current stack covering;

  • Technical Leadership

  • Mobile 

  • Web

  • Operations

  • Data


Excellent Reputation

Yes Seriously! We're only young, but we already have a great reputation and work with some of the coolest companies and people in Europe.

We love what we do and we work our butts off to make things happen and we believe this is why we're able to do what we do well. Don't take our word for it, take a look at some of the testimonials from some of our clients and candidates.
