An Insider's view of Xero

What’s the vibe like in the office?

You will always find someone to grab coffee or take a quick walk with. We really value being #human in the office and it’s one of the most important things that everyone in Xero does. This means empathizing, helping, listening, and being there for one another. It's what makes me love not only Xero, but the individual people within Xero too.

Rose

Workplace Experience Coordinator

What projects are you most excited about?

Right now, I'm most excited to work on our Denver Roadshow. I've worked with our Colorado Account Manager to connect with Colorado's leading accounting and bookkeeping firms and drive attendance to this event right here in Denver. Our goal is to build up our network and educate the community on all Xero has to offer!

Sophia
