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.

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!
