Xero is a beautiful, easy-to-use platform that helps small businesses and their accounting and bookkeeping advisors grow and thrive.
At Xero, our purpose is to make life better for people in small business, their advisors, and communities around the world. This purpose sits at the centre of everything we do. We support our people to do the best work of their lives so that they can help small businesses succeed through better tools, information and connections. Because when they succeed they make a difference, and when millions of small businesses are making a difference, the world is a more beautiful place.
Our culture & values:
We’d describe our culture as human, friendly, engaging, supportive, agile and super collaborative.
At Xero, our five values underpin everything we do: from the way we work, to how we delight and deliver to our customers.
Our values are: #Human #Ownership #Team #Challenge and #Beautiful. They create our special culture and the ‘Xero way’ that we want to foster and maintain as we scale and grow at speed. They’re integral to our brand and resonate outside Xero through our ecosystem and ultimately our customers.
Whilst our Engineering team are spread across the UK and work remotely, we truly make up for this with the social interaction and ‘team’ environment we create.
How you’ll make an impact:
You’ll help build and manage software that solves engineering problems at scale. You’ll work in collaboration with other Xeros to help create and deliver beautiful software to our customers, faster. You’ll undertake software application development on applications in our existing suite of products (including new ones), contributing to new or improved experiences for our customers, internal and external.
You’ll help maintain the standard for engineering excellence at Xero and support your team members in building products together.
You’ll demonstrate leadership on best practices, and be a role model and mentor for other team members. You’ll contribute to our cross-functional environment by working towards the same objectives, using modern principles and practices and will be encouraged to seek clarity with technical complexities and be able to demonstrate smart ways to automate.
You’ll be able to make data-driven decisions that will release value early to solve Xero customers’ problems more effectively.
Additionally, you’ll coach and mentor Engineers, contribute to Xero’s engineering standards and frameworks, help us continuously improve and get involved in helping us recruit world class talent for the future.
The Tech we use, and how often we use it:
While writing code, you’ll also be adding tests as you go using Xunit, Jest, and mock dependencies. You’ll also be defining the deployment pipelines for these components in TeamCity Kotlin, and you might use a bit of kubectl to debug your K8S cluster. Last but not least, you will also be monitoring the impact of your releases using SumoLogic, New Relic, and CloudWatch. Sounds cool to you? We’d love to hear from you!
What makes a great team? A Diverse Team!
Don’t be put off if you don’t tick all boxes; we know from research that candidates may not apply if they don’t feel they are 100% there yet, but why not give it a try?
We’re committed to creating a diverse and inclusive culture.
A snapshot of some of the things you’ll get:
At Xero we support many types of flexible working arrangements that allow you to balance your work, your life and your passions. We offer a great remuneration package with benefits that support a range of lifestyle choices and requirements and the opportunity to participate in Xero’s success through our Long Term Incentive scheme. Xero has rapidly expanding offices in London, Milton Keynes and Manchester and our work environment encourages continuous improvement and career development.
Our collaborative and inclusive culture is one we’re immensely proud of. We know that a diverse workforce is a strength that enables businesses, including ours, to better understand and serve customers, attract top talent and innovate successfully. We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion, and Disability Confident committed. So, from the moment you step through our doors, you’ll feel welcome and supported to do the best work of your life.
