Flight of the Xero

Six months ago, we moved into a new Wellington HQ. Since then, we were finalists for an NZ Property Council award in the Heritage and Adaptive Reuses category, and we’re up for a Designers Institute Best Award in the Offices and Workplace Environments category.

We’ve put together a fun video to give you an inside view of why we moved and what life is like at Xero House – with a big helping of our unique employee culture!

Take a look at the premiere of our very first David Attenborough-themed documentary: The Flight of the Xero: (and let us know what you think below afterwards!)

Xero House is just one of our excellent places to work around the world. Check out the many roles we have going at xero.com/careers.

I think I spotted some Xero’s migrating in Melbourne just weeks ago at something called #xerocon. I was assured it was not mating season 🙂

@Yvonne Phillips – thanks for commenting Mum. Even at 30 you’re still finding ways to embarrass me.
