Be part of something

What started as a beautiful vision in a small Wellington apartment has become a worldwide leader in online accounting software. We’re making small business more profitable and changing lives. It’s challenging, real and a whole lot of fun in the process –  and that’s just the start of what you’ll be part of as a Xero grad.

Thank you to everyone who has applied for our grad role this year! Applications for most of our 2017 graduate roles have now closed, please see the Apply page for details. We will open applications for 2018 roles in March 2017.

Where you can work

Xero has offices in 13 cities around the globe, and our graduate programme is run right here in the centre of it all, NZ.

Our three offices are equipped with all the important features like arcade games and pool tables, a coffee machine and even our own barista. Wellington is home to the most Xero employees – and you could be one of them.

auckland office


Our fast-growing Auckland team is housed under one New York loft-style roof, with plenty of space for creative, team-based work and chilling out or playing pool. There’s endless coffee and soda, and of course, some pretty cool technology too.
