Developer - Senior & Lead + flexible options


We’re currently hiring talented Senior Software Developers to join our global Partner Product team working on technically challenging problems to make business more beautiful for our accounting partners and small business customers. We have an ambitious three year roadmap to consolidate our applications into one cohesive experience and to achieve this, we’re hiring new teams.

Xero is a great place to develop your skills and experience with the latest engineering and software delivery practices, at scale, on a global stage. This will set you up to be the best developer you can be.

Aside from the typical perks you’d expect from a tech company (games rooms, free soft drinks, barista coffee, fresh fruit, sports teams and amazing offices), one of the best things about Xero is our people. You’ll join an inclusive, diverse product team with talented developers from all over the globe.

We support many types of flexible working arrangements like condensed, part-time and now remote too which allows you to balance your work, your life and your passions. We offer a great remuneration package which includes shares and life insurance in addition to your base salary plus a range of leave options to suit your well-being.

Our work environment encourages continuous improvement and career development and you’ll get to work with the latest technology too. Our culture is one we’re immensely proud of - from the moment you step through our doors, you’ll feel welcome. Soon we’ll be moving into an even better building space too.

Some things which make these roles awesome:

  • Honing your skills on how to lead the delivery of global software products at scale, using the latest tech and approaches
  • Working with smart, motivated people in a supportive environment
  • A strong culture of wanting to be better and making it happen
  • Empowered to try things out and make a real difference for our teams and our customers

Here is what you will be doing:

Join us writing great code on software used by over a million people worldwide which makes a difference to their day-to-day lives. You don’t need to be a master at everything, just having some of these areas of expertise is great; we can teach you the rest if you’re keen to learn:

  • C# .NET, Node
  • SQL Server, NoSQL
  • JavaScript (React, Redux, Webpack, etc)
  • Automated testing frameworks and methodologies (xUnit, NUnit, specflow, etc)
  • AWS or Azure
  • Deployment and monitoring using tools: TeamCity, Octopus Deploy, Datadog, Sumo Logic

What does a day as a developer look like?

  • Start your day at a time which suits your schedule and grab a coffee from our in-house barista or take turns with your crew to make the brew
  • Collaborate with your team at your daily standup
  • Heaps of time to code uninterrupted before lunch
  • Grab a bite to eat from a huge variety of options around here, play cards or a board game, go to a book club or drop in at one of our breakout zones. You can also easily head to our gym or go for a run down Tamaki Drive or perhaps take a dip at Parnell pools
  • More dedicated uninterrupted time after lunch for focused work or a tech review, design team catch-up, peer review or perhaps time for an internal XED talk
  • Give back to the tech community by getting involved with any of the Meetups or other events we host
  • 1:1 meetings where you set your agenda, where it’s about you to develop you
  • Some teams agree on ‘no-meeting days’ too!

Have fun while you do the best work of your life! We’re a place where personal development, innovation, and change are not only encouraged but also celebrated. We value our people and want them to enjoy and take pride in their work.

We're a huge part of the development community and you'll find Xeros attending and speaking at conferences and hosting meetups. We're really open in our discussions at Xero, from the latest product management thinking to diversity and inclusion.

Xero is a NZ Immigration Accredited Employer and is Rainbow Tick accredited too.
