I wanted to apply for a position that I saw here, but now it's not listed. Can I still apply?
We regularly post new positions and remove positions that are no longer open or have been filled. If a job isn't up on our site, then we're not taking applications for it at this time (sorry!).
What if I don't have a formal resume or CV to submit?
Not a problem! Although it is best to write one or have one done for you, you can certainly apply without one. Where we request your resume/CV, you can simply upload a brief description of your background, experience (with dates of employment), educational achievement and skills. This information is necessary to evaluate candidates, it's hard to assess your suitability without this information.
How do I register my interest in joining Xero if there isn't a relevant position advertised?
To express your interest in future roles with Xero, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, outlining which roles and locations you are interested in.
Who should I address my cover letter to?
"To Xero" or "To whom it may concern" is just fine. It's possible that multiple people will see your application, so no need to address to one specific person.
Should I send samples of my work (writing, code, designs, etc.) with my resume?
If you're selected for an interview, we may request examples of your work. If you have public copies of your work available for viewing online, there is an opportunity to include links on the initial apply page.
How do I determine the status of my application?

What does the recruitment process look like at Xero?
We have a global recruitment team who manage job listings, read incoming applications, actively source and connect with talent, assess suitability, coordinates the interview and offer processses.
What should I expect at an interview and how should I prepare?
It varies. For most positions, we begin the process with a phone interview. If there's interest on both sides, we invite the candidate for an interview. Each team is unique though, and some may have their own variation on the interview process. Not all interviews at Xero are completed in person. Where both parties can't be in the same location a Google Hangout may be used to conduct the interview.
Prior to the interviews it is a good idea to obtain a copy of the position description—this will help you start to think about how your skills and experience match what is required. Being prepared will help you provide some great examples at interview. Maybe also consider grabbing a free trial of Xero.
Our values are important to us at Xero! Understanding and embracing our values will ensure you are able to thrive in your new role at Xero.
Most importantly, relax and be yourself.
What is the Xero dress code?
We're a jeans and t-shirt kind of company, so please feel free to wear what makes you feel professional and comfortable in our relaxed environment.
How long do you take to make a decision after an interview?
We try to make a final decision within a few business days, once the successful candidate has been selected and we have completed the references and background checks.
Will you help me with relocation?
The best advice is to apply for jobs as you normally would. If a Talent Specalist contacts you about a job, let them know about your relocation requirements. In some circumstances, we do have the ability to offer relocation assistance.
Will Xero pay expenses if I have to travel to attend an interview?
Not usually. We may consider this in expectional circumstances for long distance interviews. Please speak to your Talent Specialist if the situation is relevant to you.
Do you offer flexible working arrangements?
At Xero, we want people to do the best work of their lives and fulfill their career goals whilst maintaining a happy work life balance. We have people from all walks of life with different responsibilities and priorities outside of work. It’s important to us that they can successfully juggle these whilst working hard to change the game for small business. That’s why we’re open to considering flexible ways of working and accommodating it where we can.
What's great about being a tech company is that we give people the tools to work from anywhere at anytime so flexible working is a key benefit of working at Xero. We know that flexible working can mean different things to different people and change through various life stages. We also believe it's not just a 'nice-to-have' but that it’s good for our people and it's good for Xero. So please chat to us through the recruitment process about how it might work for you.
