Our three pods deliver business outcomes via strong customer relationships, and support other teams within Xero with technology solutions and platforms.

Our team has a strong focus on back end development. We build scalable solutions using event driven architecture and maintain our own infrastructure in AWS using devops practices.

What you'll bring with you:

  • Knowledge and/or experience with Cloud based infrastructure, preferably AWS.

  • A focus on building quality scalable code, and writing unit tests to prove it works.
  • Bring a growth mindset and an openness to learn and further develop all of the above skills to help foster a positive learning environment.
  • Preferably experience with working in an agile environment and maintaining and developing multiple applications.
  • An interest in both the technical and non-technical aspects of software development that enables you to share knowledge, mentor others and push for continuous improvement.  Lift the team's game by championing positive change in team practices and culture.
