Xero to fill developer roles with overseas recruits

The company stressed that the overseas recruitment drive does not mean itis not interested in hearing from Kiwi developers.

Cloud-based accounting services provider Xero is set to hire developers from overseas as it works to fill 160 new roles in its Wellington and Auckland offices next year.

Working in partnership with Grow Wellington and IT recruiter 920 Career Agents, Xero is targeting skilled IT professionals in the UK with offers of relocation packages for successful candidates.

Xero Product Manager Andrew Tokeley says that whilst Xero is committed to growing talent at home, filling more senior roles locally has meant looking further afield.

“We’ve brought on 10 graduates in the past year through programmes like Summer of Tech and our own graduate programme and all are proving very valuable additions to the business.

“However, finding enough experienced IT professionals locally has been a harder task, which is why we’re pushing the boat out globally.

“New Zealand has so much to offer, which we hope will make our job of recruiting people from overseas that little bit easier,” said Tokeley.

He stressed that despite its recruitment drive abroad, Xero is still keen to hear from skilled New Zealand-based IT professionals.

“Xero offers some excellent opportunities for Kiwis wanting to really boost their IT careers. The scale at which we’re working and the amount of data we’re processing presents a fascinating engineering challenge – there simply aren’t many opportunities locally to work on a product of this magnitude.

“Working with Xero also presents some great opportunities to take your skills further abroad, with development teams also located in the US and Australia.”
