An Insider's view of Xero

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is that of a coffee driven, people centric, work-hard-stay-true tech business. The humans I interact with daily are passionate and kind, and the leaders are strong and clear. Slap a few dad jokes and a bit of kiwi humor in there, and there you have it.

Ryan

US Customer Experience Team Leader

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Xero we work tightly with our cross functional teams so that the people closest to the the problem have the freedom to do what they know best. I always look forward to working collaboratively with all the Xero teams because they make work fun while we accomplish things every day.

How does the company support your career growth?

One of Xero's values is being #Human, internally and externally. Xero puts the people before the product. Meaning, they encourage employees to ask more questions and speak up to move forward. I feel comfortable that I will continue to grow in my career being apart of more than just a product.

What is your vision for the company?

Xero is on a mission to support our communities by helping small businesses succeed. To do that well - we hire passionate people who engage directly with our customers every day.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Having a self-motivational and problem solving attitude are two great characteristics to have. Since we work in a very flat organization, employees are often empowered to manage projects where they need to deploy critical thinking skills in order to complete tasks without having to check in with their manager on every decision.
