Be part of something. The Xero Grad Programme

Feel like you belong

Chances are, you have a favorite local spot. And here at Xero, we’re all about the local spot. That’s because we design and develop online accounting software to make life easier and more profitable for small businesses. For you, this means helping those in the place you call home … and feeling like you belong.

Enjoy the view

Take your laptop and work wherever you like in our collaborative, modern workspaces. The thinking is fast-paced, there are smart people everywhere – and, you’ll even have time to play. So grab a (healthy) snack, don’t forget the company meals – and enjoy your lunch hour. Better yet, take an actual hour for lunch.

Soak in beautiful Coit Tower, the Bay Bridge and waterfront. Then take a stroll to Chinatown, North Beach, the Ferry Building and fun food trucks.

What to expect

Remember this: The Xero new grad and intern program is about you. Check out these five core values to help you become a better you:


When you empower small businesses to run more efficiently – you also create a stronger economy, and that helps everyone. You might build features that inspire customers to tidy up their numbers, or create a marketing campaign that convinces someone to start their own business. Whatever you do, rest assured – it will be inspiring.



Whether you write code, design a marketing initiative or analyze data – you make life easier for our small business customers. It’s a real and exciting contribution. And when you see your work in the wild – it’s a beautiful thing.



You dream big and question the norm. That’s awesome, because we always think of ways to do things bigger and better. So bring your fresh ideas and unique perspective, and let’s turn those innovative thoughts into reality.



The work is challenging because we solve for problems that no one else has. That’s where you come in. And yes, mistakes will happen. But you’ll also learn, grow and embrace every challenge.



Our customers face critical issues that influence their way of life. It’s important that you take ownership right away. This not only starts your career on the right track – but guides you toward additional responsibility.
