About the role

At Xero we work in pods of 5-9 people. Our teams are highly cross functional, and are a mix of full stack developers, devops, PO’s and QA’s. Each team make up is a little different but you’ll always be working collaboratively with other areas including design and research.

As a Senior developer you will work across the front and back end, your work will be varied and you’ll spend most of your time on the tools. The title of “Senior” developer means something a little different here at Xero, Senior developers are not defined by the years of experience but the quality of experience they can bring to the team, the solution mindset they have and the technical knowledge they can contribute.

You won’t manage anyone but you will proactively mentor, support and share challenges with your teammates whether they're a senior developer or on their first day out of the grad programme.

Xero believes in letting you shape your future, we don’t have a prescriptive career plan for you but we do have all the support and guidance you will need. So whether you want to be a people leader, a tech lead or you want to take a whole different direction we are here to support you in your journey.

As a senior, you will need to have:

    • Full stack development experience would be ideal (both C# and Javascript, React). However if you only have experience in one that’s fine too - as long you are happy to learn, we are happy to support you.
    • A proven track record of producing high quality code
    • An experienced solution design mindset
    • Experience proactively mentoring through coaching, pairing, mobbing and knowledge sharing to help your team thrive
    • You’re all about growth! You get excited about tackling the next challenge that you and your team face.
    • You believe that a strong team is more powerful than a group of individuals
Why work at Xero?

Working at Xero will provide you with a diverse and inclusive environment alongside people who will respect, challenge, support and mentor you.

Who says you can't have fun while you do the best work of your life? We see the value in work-life balance, many of us take full advantage of our flexible working arrangements, so whether you like to get a surf in before work, like to head home in time to pick up the kids or you just like working from the comfort of your own home now and then, we want to support you. 

We trust you to build your career to the best of your ability and we will support your hunger to learn with training and career mentorship, to help you flourish.
