Software Developer New Grad

Our purpose

Small business makes the world go round - it's the heart of the global economy. At Xero we want millions of small businesses to thrive through beautiful software, advice and connections. We aim to make being a small business more efficient and profitable, and more enjoyable too.

How you'll make an impact

The role of the Developer New Grad is to undertake, under the guidance of a mentor, software application development on applications in our suite of Products (including new ones), contributing to new or improved experiences for our customers, internal and external.

If you love writing code, our team of engineers could be the place for you. We show our customers love by creating great new features and fixing the occasional bug, and we do it all at speed.

What we do

Xero dev is a dynamic workspace and codebase with an incredibly fast release cycle - multiple times a day, with thousands of releases a year. Our API team is high volume and processes 260 million API calls each month. Every day, we build and iterate on the software that our users love.

What you'll do

Our Dev grads and interns join a wide range of small product teams, including those that build new strategic applications, make our existing applications even more beautiful, focus on our mobile platform, and ensure that our apps remain highly-available, secure, scalable, robust and high-performing.

Step into our world of full stack developers, front-end and back-end specialists, and quality assurance engineers. You'll see your code make a difference in the lives of Xero users after each release. You work across front-end and back-end components for web, mobile and APIs that build on top of .NET, open-source web frameworks, and Android and iOS - all deployed and managed through AWS.

As a grad developer, you have the opportunity to rotate through different product teams - and engage with mentors to be sure that you experience different career paths before you choose which to pursue. And we'll help you become a competent, confident full stack developer in your first year.


The teams are proactive communicators who take initiative and come up with great ideas. We are agile, diverse and passionate about what we do and motivated to take it to the next level. That's why we welcome students with a range of qualifications. Ideally, you:

* have a passion for writing code and also appreciate the customer experience.
* can prove your technical chops by showing us what you've been working on outside of university. Perhaps you played around with a new framework, learned a new language, built (or partially built) something, been active on Stack Overflow or have a great GitHub profile.
* are a great communicator and team player - and can take a logical, analytical approach to your work, cope with change and be eager to learn.

Xero is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
