I’m excited to share that we’re establishing a Xero base in India, where there is deep technical talent, to enhance our existing hiring and development programs for technology roles.
Through a strategic partnership with Infosys, a global digital services and consulting company, we’re setting up a Xero-managed centre of technical talent at an Infosys campus in India.
Over the coming months and years, we plan to grow our technology team in India, focussing initially on attracting engineers and developers to fill roles which will help accelerate our delivery of products and features to benefit our customers.
This is an important step in our strategic approach to increase our team of world-leading technical specialists, to support our continued sustainable growth and the ongoing value we deliver to our customers. At this stage, we don’t have any plans to establish a Xero go-to-market function in India.
Our priority is to establish our presence in India and plan the design of our future workplace which will include the usual Xero features that will support our new Xeros to do the best work of their lives. Our plan is to have a mix of Xero and Infosys employees working together in a space that embodies our Xero values and culture.
Attracting new talent
With around a million engineering and computer science students graduating every year, India offers a large volume of high quality, talented people.
Attracting and retaining world-class talent is a critical part of our growth strategy. Tapping into a new talent market allows us to continue to build #beautiful software and products. Plus, it’ll help us realise our purpose: to make life better for people in small business, their advisors and communities around the world.
Become a Xero
We’ll be looking to recruit for a range of roles including; engineers, developers, DevOps, solution architects, business analysts, project managers and product owners as well as people and talent experience positions. So, if you’re a technical specialist based in India with an interest in helping small businesses thrive and you have a passion for tech, we encourage you to keep an eye out for upcoming opportunities to join the Xero team here.
