The Xero grad program

Learn on the job with the Xero grad program and find out how your career can flourish. We know what it takes to help you do the best work of your life and we’ll invest in you to help you get there.

You’ll start your career with a close-knit group of grads giving you instant connections around the business. We’ll hook you up a buddy and you’ll work closely with your manager to create a career development plan.

Grow with us

We’ll help you develop your technical skills and your people skills, so whether you know how you want your career to develop or you want to explore your options, we’ll help you get there.

The Xero grad program is your way in to a global company with a start-up mentality. Start your career with others in the same boat, have the support of a structured program, and be mentored by the best in the industry.

Working with us

For our 2020 grad program we’re looking for developers, engineers, data specialists and product designers who want to make their mark on one of New Zealand’s leading tech companies.

Our grad program is run in Wellington and Auckland. No matter which office you’re in, you'll have bottomless coffee, free fruit, a flexible work environment and amazing teammates.

We could tell you how great the Xero grad program is until we turn blue in the face, but it’s probably better if you hear it straight from some of our staff and past grads. Find out where they started, where they are now and how Xero helped them get there.

Come and meet us

What better way to find out if Xero’s where you want to start your career than talking to some of our people in person?
