An Insider's view of Xero

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Getting things done for our customers is always top of mind, but Xero understands that starts from taking great care of ourselves as well. Having the ability to work from home when needed, wellness days, and events like office walks and 10 minute massages show that life (and living it!) helps us contribute and innovate better at work.

What projects are you most excited about?

Right now, I'm most excited to work on our Denver Roadshow. I've worked with our Colorado Account Manager to connect with Colorado's leading accounting and bookkeeping firms and drive attendance to this event right here in Denver. Our goal is to build up our network and educate the community on all Xero has to offer!

Sophia

Account Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

If you’re hungry to learn more, have a brilliant idea, or are passionate about a particular project, just dive in head first. Xero values people who are do-ers, who want to roll up their sleeves and #champion an initiative through from beginning to end.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our team is responsible for ensuring every Xero has a voice and an opportunity to influence: upward, downward and horizontally. There are very few constraints for people who have bright ideas, the right values, and the passion to make things better. Every Xero has access to leadership and opportunities to impact strategy in very direct ways.
