Clutch Global Awards 2022
Throughout the year, our partners leave us reviews on Clutch, An independent review platform that helps businesses find trusted digital service providers around the world.
December is one of the most exciting times to have a Clutch profile, as they evaluate all of their listings from around the world for their global awards—a definitive list of their most popular partners in each industry vertical. Think of them as being like the Olympics for digital service providers!
Clutch 1000 List
Every year Clutch comes up with the Clutch 1000 list: Their annual awards that celebrate the top 1% of agencies on the platform.
We were lucky enough to get a spot on this list back in 2021, and we’re incredibly excited to see our name on there again this year!
Clutch is competitive, there are around 140,000 verified peer reviews on the site, so to be recognized as one of the top 1,000 businesses is a real testament to both the ability of our team and the purpose of the work we do.

Our team may be globally distributed, but XWP does have a home! XWP started life in Melbourne, Australia, with a small team that would eventually spread out to every corner of the earth.
We’ve grown quite over the years, but we still love the Melbourne business community. It has a special place in our history as a business, and we still have a number of deep-running partnerships in the city. That’s why it was really special to see that we were the top-reviewed B2B Firm in Melbourne.

Great Place to Work
We’re incredibly excited to announce that our all-remote workplace is now officially certified as a Great Place to Work! After spending almost a decade building an inclusive and valuable community we’re thrilled and humbled to have official recognition.
The great thing about Great Place to Work is that it partners with a 3rd party survey provider, so even though XWP has an internal tool in place to measure the experience of our XWPeople, it’s truly meaningful to validate what we hear through an impartial source.
