Engineers work on our platforms. That means nothing would function without us. If you want to build things that last a long time and everyone relies on, this is for you. As a grad, you'll get to rotate through different teams before you choose a career path and figure out where your passion lies.

We've got lots of teams who want to bring grad engineers on board, so whether you're interested in platform, reliability or security engineering, we've got a role for you. To see more detail on each of the types of Engineering roles available, head to our grad website, xero.com/nz/graduate

The skill sets across our engineering roles are similar, so don't worry if you're not sure which one best suits you – apply for one and we'll help you find out. If you do have a preference, just let us know in your application.

You'll be self-driven, inquisitive, enjoy collaborating with different teams across the business, and thrive on technical challenges. We welcome grads with any qualification, not necessarily a university degree.

Ideally, you'll:

  • Like working with servers or data, and if you like to script or write code then that's a great combo
  • Love problem solving, thinking on your feet, helping other people and taking the initiative
  • Enjoy investigating why things work, not just how they work
  • Enjoy building solutions for other Xeros, removing pain points and making their lives easier

Preparing to apply:

  • We'll need a copy of your CV, as well as links to any online projects, websites, GitHub/Stack overflow, or anything else you want to show us.
  • 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.
  • 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 2021.

Applications close on 25 May 2020.
