Minister opens new Australian HQ

A morning brunch on Friday presided by the Victorian Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips marked the official opening of our new Australian headquarters in Melbourne. It has capped off an incredible year for Xero in Australia with our recent ASX listing and position as Xero’s fastest growing region, having tripled both our revenue and customer numbers in Australia in the past 12 months.

Chris Ridd and Minister Rich-Phillips

Our new office is only 50 meters from our old office in Hawthorn so the move was quick and effortless. Being a cloud based company, all we had to do was pick up our laptops and walk over to our stylish new office. Without the need for servers and software installations, we were able to start working immediately.

With a bigger space, we are able to work better with our ecosystem of partners. The new office enables us to help our partners and independent software vendors with desk space, providing support for cloud start-ups and fostering growth in the industry.

The open floor plan reflects our collaborative and vibrant approach. Managing Director Chris Ridd sits in a central area that is accessible to all employees and our teams sit together so they can collaborate easily. It’s an environment that makes it easy to share ideas and facilitate conversation with comfy lounges and stools.

Looking to join a growing team in a great new space? Check out our current open positions.

We look forward to welcoming our partners and meeting new friends at our new headquarters.
