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.

About the Team

We’re a small but energetic group focused on helping our product engineering teams ship better quality software, faster.

We proactively engage with teams on targeted projects to tackle complex, high-priority work which fast-tracks uplifting systems to follow best practices. For example, migrating systems from manually-created EC2 instances to immutable containers running on Kubernetes, or implementing automated build/deploy pipelines in CI configured via code.

We also offer support to these teams through answering questions in our Slack channel and providing follow-up help where necessary. For example, pairing with a team to debug an infrastructure issue or tweak their test harness or build scripts.

Our customers are internal product engineering teams - so working effectively across a large group of people as a team is a key to our success. We operate Delivery & Support services centered on uplifting non-functional aspects of software, through enabling and helping engineers to continuously improve their systems. We take pride in measurement, and extend this to capturing feedback from our customers to learn and improve on the services we deliver to them.

About the Role

We’re looking for a talented and well-rounded software engineer to help our product teams drive and measure continuous improvements against our key software delivery performance metrics. Someone who is passionate about relentless automation, takes pride in their craftsmanship, and challenges the status quo. As part of this role, they’ll build relationships and communities which foster knowledge sharing, bilateral feedback, and continuous learning/improvement.
