Product Design Graduate 2022

The role

Product designers help shape our products. We understand how people use Xero, then we work with cross-disciplinary teams to build the most delightful and effective experiences.

We think about the entire Xero experience, from tiny interface details to making our customers' lives’ better. We’re interested in how someone uses a design, not just the look of a button or screen.

As a graduate product designer, you’ll be responsible for designing the interface architecture, workflow, and visual design of our product. 

The product design team challenges assumptions and ideas to make the software helpful and easy to use. We work through ideas and designs with customers, engineers, researchers, writers, and product managers, and we prototype experiences quickly.

What we need from you

You’ll be a great listener and able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. You’ll have an analytical side and a knack for crafting beautiful user experiences.

We’re looking for candidates with a design degree, including digital, visual communications, graphic, industrial, interaction, and media design.

Ideally you’ll: 

  • be an excellent communicator and team player
  • be a problem solver who can take a logical, analytical approach while being user-focused
  • be creative, agile, motivated and passionate people
  • like to question the status quo and take initiative

If this sounds like you, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.

How to apply

We’ll need a copy of your CV, cover letter, portfolio and links to online projects, your website or Behance pages and anything else you want to show us.

We’ll also need a copy of your academic transcript – we know it won’t be complete until the end of the year, so just send us everything so far.

In your portfolio you should include examples of a few projects you’ve worked on that you’re proud of, including some web or app projects. 

We want your portfolio to:

  • show how you have identified and solved problems with design
  • explain some of your design process
  • show how users interact with your design, using InVision or a video of the interface

For the first interview, we’ll ask you to prepare a case study in advance and take us through the process. We’ll send you more information on what to prepare beforehand. 

You need to be a citizen or permanent resident to apply. We’ll need a copy of your passport and/or visa for a start date in Feb 2022.

Applications open 1 May 2021 and close 30 June 2021.
