The role

The data team creates, manages and delivers a wide range of data services. It’s Xero’s centre of expertise for data architecture, data modelling, machine learning, ethical data usage, ecosystem analytics, and artificial intelligence service design.

As a graduate, you’ll spend the year rotating through the data team’s pod and functional areas, gaining hands-on experience into what each area does and how they work. At the end of the year, these rotations will help inform your decision about your career path at Xero.

Along the journey, mentors will aid your personal growth and development by providing feedback and teaching technical skills. Through this process, you’ll form strong relationships with your colleagues and peers, equipping you for an exciting career at Xero.
