Looking for a new opportunity?

Our transparent job board only has vacancies from employers we endorse and lets you see what benefits, policies and perks come with the job.

Endorsed  Employer for Women Xero recognizes the challenges individuals face in returning to work after an extended break.

“Career Reboot with Xero is a recruitment campaign for job-seekers who are looking to return to work after a career break of  2+ years.”

They currently have positions available in their Customer Success and Product teams, based in Melbourne.

What do the positions involve and what background is required?

Customer Experience Specialist – Payroll:

“As part of our Customer Success function, this role is primarily responsible for resolving and responding to queries from our small business customers who are using the Payroll function of Xero.  End-to-end Payroll experience would be highly regarded. A collaborative and outcome-focused approach and excellent written communication skills are a must.”

“As a Developer at Xero you will be part of our cross functional delivery teams who focus on building beautiful experiences for small businesses. The purpose of this role will be to deliver beautiful software that helps these small business customers to thrive. We are looking for a passionate Developer who takes pride in their work and just as important as the technical experience is the ability to be #human and take #ownership of your environment.”

Apply here.

What is Xero looking for in returning employees?

What we are looking for in these roles, is what we look for in all of our employees. Whilst smarts and experience is important we believe that attitude is everything.

First and foremost we look for people whose attitude and behavior reflects our values. It’s important we have people that are customer focused, think outside the square, are super keen to learn, and take pride and ownership of their work. We want a good mix of people from different backgrounds, capabilities, and perspectives as we believe in the power of cognitively diverse teams.

What is Xero’s go-to interview question?

WORK180 asked Xero along with 10 more Endorsed Employers for Women what their go-to interview questions are to help you  prepare yourself for your next interview. Wondering why Joe Salvati always asks this question?

Strengths based interviewing, when done effectively, enables candidates to show their true colors and open up about the type of work that will keep them engaged.”

Will Xero be offering flexible work arrangements?

As a global cloud based technology company we help small businesses run their business from anywhere, anytime so it make sense to give our staff the tools to work in the same way.

“At Xero we support flexible working and, in particular, for Career Reboot at Xero we will consider candidates looking to work both full time and part-time.   Please let us know your preference in your application.”

What kind of training and development opportunities will Xero provide?

Both our Customer Success and Product teams provide comprehensive induction and onboarding to help new starters get up to speed.   We will also provide a dedicated mentor and full access to our Learning & Development programs.

What do their employees say?

“Being a Mum of two, I’d have to say the flexibility around work hours is a definite benefit, not just in terms of work hours, but also the ability to work from home when required. What’s more, the ability to have access to tools like Puralsight has been an unexpected perk, in addition to the coffee machine, yoga sessions, lunchtime visits from Mr Burger and a great social network”.
