What is the design grad program?
Design programs at Xero include roles in our product design and digital design teams. This year, we’re hiring for roles in product design and design research.
Joining the grad program means getting a permanent role at Xero. After completing the grad year, you’ll be promoted into the next stage of your chosen career path.
Given the specialist nature of the roles, you’ll spend the entire program with the same team working on different projects and building up your skill set to progress your career in your chosen field.
We are only able to accept one application per candidate, so please think carefully about which role you’d like to apply for. If you’d like to chat to a Xero employee before applying, come along to one of our virtual or in-person events.

Graduate product designers
Graduate product designers work on the user experience and interaction for Xero’s product. They help design the interface architecture, workflow, and visual design of our product.
Graduate design researchers
Graduate design researchers seek to understand how people use Xero. They support the planning, research, analysis and presentation of insights on the attitudes and behaviours of current and future Xero users.
“I got put straight into a team as a graduate designer. It was such a supportive environment and I could just ask anyone if I had any questions or worries.”
