Xero Is Hiring In SFO

Xero, a terrific SaaS player in the small business accounting space is hiring for their US expansion. As a small business or start-up, there is probably nothing more important than managing your money.

I got involved with Xero for a simple reason (two actually, but more on that in a minute). Having built a number of my own businesses, nothing frustrated me more than the inefficiency and complexity of Intuit and the other accounting packages out there. They were just too cumbersome and time consuming. Xero is the answer and positioned for incredible growth in the US. They’ve already won thousands of customers with no marketing or sales effort.

They’ve also got an amazing team lead by Rod Dury (New Zealand’s most seasoned Tech entrepreneur) and backed by the likes of Peter Thiel and a stock market listing.

If you are interested, take a look at the first two opportunities here.
