Xactware Solutions provides computer software solutions for professionals involved in estimating all phases of building and repair.
In 1986, Xactware opened for business with Xactimate, its flagship estimating system. Xactimate helped contractors and insurance adjusters estimate repairs much faster and more accurately than they ever could before. Since then, Xactimate has evolved into a high-powered package complete with a patented plan-sketching program, and Xactware has become much more than just Xactimate.
Today 22 of the top 25 property insurance companies in the U.S. and 10 of the top 10 Canadian insurers use Xactware property insurance claims tools. Xactware features software solutions for every phase of a building's life: from remodeling to totally replacing a building, from determining the cost of rebuilding a structure to preserving and repairing a home.
Xactware also provides tools to estimate personal property, emergency repairs, and more. Xactware users can work on a desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or "on the cloud" using browser-based solutions. Estimating products are connected to a comprehensive set of tools that includes an assignment network, analytical reports, cost research, project management, and third-party products. The online training center provides users with high-quality training on Xactware solutions and the construction industry.
Xactware reinvests heavily in research and development as well as in the quality of people who develop its products.

I worked at Xactware Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)
Great practices in QA. Good experience for better than sweat shop software development. Probably not a place for long term employment as there is a lot of college recruitment done meaning you are working with people aren't quite always following good standards as they're still learning them. I think though overall though this company does a good job. The activities are good and HR is really good.
Sometimes there's really unrealistic expectations due to the company being very top heavy. There's a lot of sales work done and deals are made w/out consulting dev teams about anything. The pay is at average or below average.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Xactware Solutions (Lehi, UT) in November 2016.
I talked to a receptionist who had me wait in the lobby. Later someone came and got me, they had me wait a even longer in what looked like a conference room. After some time two people came and interviewed me. It seemed to me that I was not welcome unless I was Mormon based on their questions. I answered questions in a way that suggested I was Mormon without actually saying that I was. The offer I received from them was later pulled when they figured out I am not Mormon.
