Our culture & values:
We'd describe our culture as human, friendly, engaging, supportive, agile and super collaborative.
At Xero, our five values underpin everything we do: from the way we work, to how we delight and deliver to our customers.
Our values are: #Human #Ownership #Team #Challenge and #Beautiful. They create our special culture and the ‘Xero way’ that we want to foster and maintain as we scale and grow at speed. They're integral to our brand and resonate outside Xero through our ecosystem and ultimately our customers.
Whilst our engineering team are spread across the UK and work remotely, we truly make up for this with the social interaction and 'team' environment that we create.
As a permanent remote worker at Xero we want to ensure you are getting the same #beautiful employee experience as our in-office Xero’s. Permanent remote Xero’s will benefit from a virtual ergonomic work assessment and funding to assist with the improvement of your at home work setup. Xero will also fund up to 4 trips a year to your most relevant region Xero office. You are part of our #team and we want to see you thrive!
