2022 Graduate Salesforce Developer - Wellington

What we do

Xero is a beautiful, easy-to-use platform that helps small businesses and their accounting and bookkeeping advisors grow and thrive.

At Xero, our purpose is to make life better for people in small business, their advisors, and communities around the world. This purpose sits at the centre of everything we do. We support our people to do the best work of their lives so that they can help small businesses succeed through better tools, information and connections. Because when they succeed they make a difference, and when millions of small businesses are making a difference, the world is a more beautiful place.

The role

Salesforce developers build and maintain Xero’s Salesforce products and services. This includes one of New Zealand’s most complex Salesforce environments.

You’ll have the opportunity to work across Xero’s Salesforce teams, innovating new features, fixing bugs and enhancing functionality. If you enjoy learning and want to write code that makes our customers and stakeholders happy, we want to hear from you.

As a grad, you’ll get to rotate through different Salesforce teams made up of Salesforce developers, technical leads, functional consultants, functional leads, team leads and administrators. You’ll work with technologies like APEX, Visualforce, Lightning Web Components, SOQL, Flows, Process Builder and more. We’ll help you on your way to becoming a Salesforce developer in your first year.

What we need from you

You’ll have a passion for writing code, learning, sharing ideas and be keen to work in an agile environment. We welcome grads with any qualification, not necessarily a university degree.

Ideally you’ll:

  • have technical examples of work outside your course, such as developing a new framework, learning a new language, being active on Stack Overflow, or have a great GitHub profile
  • be able to take a logical approach to work and cope well with change
  • be a great communicator who likes working in agile teams
  • have an active Salesforce Trailhead account with lots of badges

If this sounds like you, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.

How to apply

We’ll need a copy of your CV, cover letter, and examples of projects you’ve worked on that you’re proud of.

We’ll also need a copy of your academic transcript – we know it won’t be complete until the end of the year, so just send us everything so far.

We want your application to showcase your passion for production, so do that in any way you think appropriate!

You need to be a citizen or permanent resident to apply. We’ll need a copy of your passport and/or visa for a start date in Feb 2022.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we ask that you only apply for one role in one location. Please take some time to research each opportunity available before submitting your application.

The recruitment process

Applications open on 1 March 2021 and close 14 May 2021.
