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.

Permanent remote Xero's will benefit from a virtual ergonomic work assessment and funding to assist with the improvement of your at home work setup.

About the team:
The Xero Payroll team exists to make it simple for small businesses everywhere to pay their people correctly and with confidence. The Payroll Engineering teams are responsible for building, maintaining and operating payroll features which will define the Xero Payroll experience for multiple jurisdictions.
Day to day the pods are involved in a wide variety of tasks - building new functionality, maintaining existing services and investigating reported issues.
Working closely with the team leads, product owners and other stakeholders, you will be keeping the team focused and aligned, ensuring we are building features that provide the best experience for our customers.
We are an established team, always looking to grow and develop. Joining our team will give you a chance to influence our growth; ranging from how we work, to setting expectations around what "good" looks like.
You, and your role:
As our Engineering Manager, you'll focus on providing people, team and technical leadership for your pod(s) in the UK, whilst coordinating and driving work in collaboration with remote teams based in Australia & New Zealand. Working with the broader payroll team, you'll help us build a world class software development practice by: utilising your exemplary and inspiring mentorship and leadership ability to drive high performing teams, whilst promoting an environment for people to experiment, learn and grow.
Ensuring a clear vision for the payroll engineering team, and a roadmap to achieve it; aligning it to Xero's global engineering vision. Cultivate a fun, rewarding, agile and results driven culture. Championing and driving processes and practices that make it possible for your team to do great work. Attracting, recruiting and retaining top talent, building on and complimenting the diversity of our teams. Pragmatic and professional enough to deal with legacy/monolith but knows what good looks like and knows how to drive a roadmap towards Engineering excellence.
The tech stack
We use a lot of C# in .NET Core and .NET Framework. We use React and some Knockout (but we are working on migrating away from it!) . We use a lot of SQL Server and some no-SQL DynamoDB. We love AWS as an infrastructure partner, and TeamCity for our builds and deployments.
We work in an agile way and are constantly refining how we can best live those principles to continuously deliver software that delights our customers and demonstrates our value. We strive for engineering excellence!
We incorporate principles like SOLID, concepts like Domain Driven Design, proven and emerging design patterns, strong testing practices like TDD and automation, with collaborative team environments. Continuous engineering growth is important to us and we're persistent in being better tomorrow than we were today. Last but not least, the team monitors the impact of their releases using SumoLogic, New Relic, and CloudWatch.
About you
Beyond having a strong background working in an environment that promotes engineering excellence, modern practices and principles, you'll be an experienced, inspiring and visionary Software Engineering leader with world class coaching and mentorship ability. You'll be data driven, super agile, and able to provide leadership through the provision of objectives, goals, guidelines and directions through communication of expectations.
