Next chapter for Xero US

Over a year ago we set up our US office at the corner of Harrison St and 5th street in San Francisco. It was a perfect place to get things rolling. We stepped right into the silicon valley technology community and connected to the many leading players that make up this incredible place including venture capitalists, tech leaders, startups, and associations. It has been a perfect foray into the US technology landscape. A special thanks goes out to the Kiwi Landing Pad for making the setup simple, fast, and easy.

This is an exciting time for Xero in the US. We’ve expanded to almost 30 employees and along with that growth is a need for a larger office we can call our own. We have just moved to 244 Jackson Street. We have taken a full floor on the 2nd level of a four story building. The space itself is creative with brick and beam structures, high ceilings, and an open concept. For those that aren’t familiar with the area it is a fantastic location just north of the financial district right next to the Transamerica Building. The area is surrounded by great restaurants like Kokkari, great cafes, green spaces, and Sightglass coffee right around the corner. It’s also a hop, skip, and jump from Muni and BART. Needless to say, but the move has been incredibly uplifting for the US team.

For many San Franciscans it is a small distance between Harrison Street and Jackson Street, but for us it’s a big move—a milestone. It feels like chapter one in the US is complete. We’ve built the foundation for growth, built a strong team, have a market-leading product, and lots and lots of runway. The story is unfolding very nicely.

We are all very excited about the next chapter and to write it we need some more people. We have some incredible open positions across many disciplines including engineering, sales, marketing, and talent management. If you are looking for a fast-growing company building a first-class product for a massive market, then we want to talk to you.

The fact that the conference, which is ...
