The role

Product designers help shape our products. We understand how people use Xero, then we work with cross-disciplinary teams to build the most delightful and effective experiences.

We think about the entire Xero experience, from tiny interface details to making the lives of our customers better. We’re interested in how someone uses a design, not just the look of a button or screen.

As a graduate product designer, you’ll be responsible for designing the interface architecture, workflow and visual design of our product.

The product design team challenges assumptions and ideas to make the software helpful and easy to use. We work through ideas and designs with customers, engineers, researchers, writers and product managers, and we prototype experiences quickly.

What we’d like to see from you

You’ll be a great listener and able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. You’ll have an analytical side and a knack for crafting beautiful user experiences.

We’re looking for applicants with a design degree, including digital, visual communications, graphic, industrial, interaction and media design.

Ideally you’ll:

  • be an excellent communicator and team player
  • be a problem solver who can take a logical, analytical approach while being user-focused
  • be a creative, agile, motivated and passionate person
  • like to question the status quo and take the initiative

If this sounds like you, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.
