Design & User Experience

Product designers help shape our products. We understand how people use Xero, then we work with cross-disciplinary teams to build the most delightful and effective experiences. 

We're hiring product designers, design researchers, and content strategists for the product design team.

Product designers think about the entire Xero experience, from tiny interface details to making our customers' lives better. We're interested in how someone uses a design, not just the look of a button or screen.  

As a product designer grad, you'll be responsible for designing the interface architecture, workflow, and visual design of our product. Ideally, you'll have a design degree, including digital, visual communications, graphic, industrial, interaction, and media design.

Design researchers plan, research, analyse, and share insights about the attitudes and behaviours of people of current and future Xero users. The design research team focuses on the problem identification part of the design process. 

As a design research grad, you'll develop research programs, conduct studies, analyse results, and report back to product teams. Ideally, you'll have a degree in a relevant field such as design, anthropology, psychology, or any field with a research focus. 

Content strategists shape our products by understanding how people user Xero and then work with teams to build effective experiences. We work with designers through the development process to ensure the language in our products is meaningful, clear, and easy to understand.

As a content strategy grad, you'll write and edit content for Xero products, maintain the product language guidelines, and help with user research projects.  For this role you will have, or be working towards, a degree in relevant fields such as design, journalism, communications, media, library science or any field with a writing focus.

Preparing to apply:

We'll need a copy of your CV, cover letter, portfolio and links to online projects, your website or Behance pages and 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.

In your portfolio, you should include examples of a few projects you've worked on that you're proud of, including some web or app projects. 

We want your portfolio to:

  • Show how you have identified and solved problems with design
  • Explain some of your design processes
  • Show how users interact with your design, using InVision or a video of the interface

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.

Our CEO recently gave a talk where he said the phrase “I don’t want a team of know-it-alls, I want a team of learn-it-alls”, which I think sums up what being a developer is all about.
