The role

The security of our product is fundamental to Xero. The security teams work with all areas of the business to ensure our systems are secure. We keep the good in and the bad out. We help engineers produce secure products, defend Xero from cyber attacks, and do everything in between.

You’ll have the opportunity to rotate within different security teams, or spend one or more rotations in our core technical program. You’ll be self-driven, enjoy collaborating with different teams across the business, and thrive on technical challenges. All you need is an interest in security, you don’t need to have studied it.

Security Analyst

Security analysts focus on the less code-heavy aspects of cyber security. The role values people with a keen eye for detail, naturally inquisitive skills, and a drive for upholding the safety of our customers. The role covers a range of duties including:
- assessing Xero’s security risks 
- helping Xero pass security audits
- assisting in security education campaigns
- monitoring Xero for cyber attacks
- being involved in security incidents by defending Xero as attacks occur

What we’d like to see from you

Ideally you’ll:
- have a passion for and express interest in the security and privacy of our customers like working with servers or data, and if you like to - script or write code then that’s a great combo
- love problem solving, thinking on your feet, helping other people, and taking the initiative enjoy investigating why things work, not just how they work
- enjoy building solutions for other Xeros, removing pain points and making their lives easier
- diving deep and analysing root causes of issues and potential vulnerabilities 
How to apply

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you! However please keep in mind that due to the number of applications we receive, we ask that you only apply for one role in one location. Please take some time to research each opportunity available before submitting your application.

If you are eligible for this role and you pass the initial eligibility stage, you will be sent a selection of online assessments (behavioural and technical) as well as a video interview via Talegent.

Our Grad Days will be held from late September through to early October.
