Working with us

Xero has offices in 20 cities around the world. No matter which office you’re in, you'll have bottomless coffee, free fruit, a flexible work environment and amazing teammates.



Our head office in Australia is in the buzzing suburb of Hawthorn, a stone’s throw from the CBD. We have a diverse mix of Xeros doing their best work in both global and regional teams. We love our shared lunches, food truck visits, onsite yoga, fitness and meditation classes, as well as being close to a stack of cool places to hang out.



The Canberra office is home to a thriving team of developers. It’s close to the Canberra Centre, the National University, and plenty of cafes and other fun spots so there’s no better place to help make beautiful business happen.

Growing with us

We aim high and create opportunities for ourselves and our teams. We lead the way and drive initiatives that make Xero the best in its class.


We want to delight our customers with our beautiful software, whether you’re writing code, designing experiences, enabling sales teams or supporting marketing campaigns you will be focused on making our customer’s day. It’s a team effort and we’d love you to take pride in making every aspect of our brand beautiful.


We encourage our people to take ownership of their work. From day one you’ll have training and mentoring and be encouraged to believe in yourself. Bring your fresh ideas and we’ll bring a willingness to give them a go.


We don’t take the path less travelled, we create a new path altogether. Here you’ll dream big and solve problems that nobody else has attempted to. Make mistakes, learn and grow; it’s all part of the journey.


We’re real people and so are our customers. We are as diverse as our customer base to ensure we can facilitate and even preempt their needs. We thrive on innovation and want everyone to share their ideas and improvements.


The success of Xero

What started as an ambitious vision for accounting in a small Wellington apartment, has become a leading global platform for small business. We’re helping small businesses do more of what they love and changing lives because of it. It’s challenging, real and a whole lot of fun.
