Cloud accounting software vendor, Xero will be adding 50 new tech jobs across the country.
The vendor currently counts about 255 employees in Australia that span across sales, support, marketing, design, business services and product development. In 2009, it had about seven staff.
The new positions are in development, sales, marketing, finance and business services.
“Xero is experiencing tremendous growth, reflected not only in the number of small businesses that use our platform, but also our expanding network of technology and banking partners,” Xero Australia managing director, Trent Innes, said. “What we are building in our backyard is having real, global impact for over 700,000 paying subscribers around the world and we’re proud to be creating more jobs in Australia.”
Victorian minister for small business, innovation and trade, Philip Dalidakis, said Xero's expansion plans were a great outcome for local jobs, the industry and tech sector.
The vendor’s Melbourne-based product team recently launched an app for freelance workers in America, called TaxTouch as well as Xero Tax.
