What’s the role?

As a Development Manager, you will be responsible for the People Leads and Lead Engineers who work across the three pillars of the Subscription & Billing domain. As a leader of leaders, you’ll foster a positive team culture and provide direction for technical practices and standards.

We’re a place where innovation and change are not only encouraged but also celebrated. We value our people and want them to enjoy and take pride in their work.

    We’re very supportive of flexible working arrangements and offer a competitive remuneration package including shares and life insurance, in addition to your base salary. We have a culture we’re proud of. Whether you're after a workplace with a social vibe, or a workplace which understands your family is priority - Xero is all of that and more.
