Our clients.

We believe in long-lasting partnerships.

A good partnership includes the strategies that make a difference, the results that matter, and the evolution in our thinking that consistently keeps our clients one step ahead.


Our process

Our approach has evolved through years of adaptation and ensures we deliver consistent and quality service for our clients.



At Xode, playing with creativity and technology is in our genes.

We believe we are all born creative. When we nurture this creativity and allow ourselves to be fully submerged in it, we break the glass ceiling.

Our strategy is grounded in challenging the status quo and redefining the digital experience, infusing creative design with our development process and aligning roadmaps with the vision and goals of the organisation.

Our philosophy is grounded in challenging the status quo. Perhaps it's already good, and is there a way it can be even better? We have created a culture where challenging the status quo is encouraged.

Our mission.

Our mission is to unlock innovation and potential for every forward-thinking organisation on Earth. This mission drives us to deliver world-class experiences with creativity and technology.

We achieve this by crafting disruptive digital innovations, by striving for creative and technical excellence, by building a bold and diverse global team and by having a positive impact in the communities where we work and live.

Our vision.

Xode sees a world with infinite success - a world where forward-thinking people and organisations rethink what's possible, and move beyond what's predictable. 

Driven by our passion for creativity and technology, we aim to be the global leading-provider of world-class digital experiences. 

Our values.

It's about the people.

People are the most important thing. Above all else, people should always be put first. We care about those we work with and those we serve. Everything we do should build trust.

Growth and learning is in our DNA.

Our curiosity ignites an endless hunger for learning. We can always be better. We are always pursuing growth on all fronts and levels. We will always strive to be 1% better every day. 

We are challengers.

Change is the only constant in our world. We don't just accept it, we enthusiastically embrace and drive ongoing change. We challenge the status quo and push boundaries. We don't maintain, we multiply. We are bold in what we do. 



It all began with a partnership. 

Xode was founded in 2018 by Husband and Wife team Jared and Victoria Gombert. Their strong union was the foundation of the good work that we continue to deliver.  

We believe that good work requires leaders who embrace change and who support, celebrate and challenge one another's perspectives and approaches.

Long-lasting partnerships start when we have open and honest communication, contribute ideas and strategy, and are forthcoming about where we stand and what we want to accomplish.

When considering a client partnership, we measure the potential client against five criteria to ensure it will be successful and that we’re a good fit for each other. 

This includes: having access to decision makers, ensuring their requirements fall into our industry expertise, that it's financially viable for both parties, that we can quickly build momentum, and lastly - that we can undeniably create something outstanding for the client. 

We believe that good work with good people makes for long-lasting partnerships.

Key people.

Our people are our best assets. We believe in people first and foremost.
