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 we create.

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!
Your role, and how you’ll make an impact:
This role will initially focus on a greenfield mobile-first product to cater for an unserved need of our customers. We’re building out a brand new team, and this will be our 2nd iOS Engineer in the UK.

You’ll collaborate with the team to design and build beautiful features that leverage the best of native mobile capability. You’ll identify opportunities to extend and enhance Xero’s development standards.
You’ll be encouraged to seek clarity with technical complexities and be able to demonstrate smart ways to move forward. You’ll be able to make data-driven decisions that will release value early to solve Xero customers problems more effectively.
You, and tech we use:
We’ve had the luxury of choosing the latest and greatest technology to build our greenfield product and fully embraced the opportunity to bake in quality and continuous delivery practices right from the get go. Our iOS app has been built entirely using Swift as the language, we create views using SwiftUI, and follow continuous delivery practices including using many modern testing techniques.
Our code is in Github and we use for our CI/CD pipelines.  As well as having experience of delivering mobile first iOS apps, you’ll be passionate about software engineering, building sustainable applications, and continually improving our practices and technology.
The wider engineering team build a microservice architecture, use domain driven design to write containerised .NET Core components, deploy to AWS using Kubernetes infrastructure and work with cloud services such as DynamoDB, SQS, SNS and more.
