What is the technical grad program?

If you want to navigate your way into a career as an engineer, security specialist, data specialist or Salesforce engineer, the technical grad program is the place for you.

All technical grads complete four rotations consisting of three months each. They give you the opportunity to experience working in different teams on a wide range of tech stacks and products. The rotations are typically across full stack, front-end, back-end, mobile, and data reliability. You’ll get an opportunity to diversify your skills, meet new people and better understand how the business operates. Your first rotation will be decided before you start at Xero, but you’ll be able to have more input about which areas you rotate into.

The grad program offers training and development, as well as specialist managers, buddies and a grad team network to support and help you with creating a professional development plan throughout your grad year.

“The grad program is designed for learning. You don’t need to be a brilliant developer right away, because we’re here to learn the skills we need and try out different areas.”
