One of our more recent QA hires, Sumedha Saini.

Time to sweeten the deal to attract Quality Assurance (QA) staff!

It was only a couple of months ago we blogged on our need for QA Analysts and while we’ve had some success, our needs keep growing as the company does.

When you are developing software with a growing feature set and customer base, having the right balance between the number of QAs and developers is imperative. Our product development manager Andrew Tokeley describes this situation well in Computerworld this week.

We have numerous recruiters looking for us but we’re in a hurry so we thought why don’t we experiment with saving the recruitment fee and paying you directly!

Right now we want at least two more Senior QAs urgently, in Wellington and Auckland. We’ve got nine QA vacancies in total.

So we’re sweetening the deal for this elite and important group with a $15,000 sign-on bonus on top of a competitive salary. This is a great opportunity for the right people to jump into a new job at the forefront of a business software revolution.

If this sounds like you then check out the details of the skills and experience we are looking for an then email us at

To be eligible for the $15,000 bonus:

  • Your resume and covering letter needs to be with the Xero careers team by 2nd November 2012
  • Your application needs to be submitted directly by you with no third party involvement (ie no recruitment agencies)
  • You will need to successfully complete our recruitment & selection process and be offered a full time QA role with Xero, commencing before the end of this year.
  • And no, you can’t just grab the money and run. The $15,000 will be paid in two amounts, $7,500 gross on your 6 month anniversary with Xero, with the remainder being paid on your 1st Xero birthday.

So there has never been a better time for QA’s to kick off a fulfilling career with Xero.  We’d love to hear from you.
