CAREER: After college graduation, Xander moved to California and became a 9-1-1 dispatcher for a spell, while taking time to network and make connections in the software development field. Xander eventually landed a position with Headbook, a social media platform, and climbed the ladder to the Chief Technology Officer. 

Roland Kingsley hired Xander as the CEO of Yipper in 2016. Things between Xander and Roland have been tumultuous, and there are rumors that Xander is seeking another position elsewhere.
