Posted 2 months ago

For the last 100 years, companies have operated primarily under a product-centric business model, where the goal was to make, ship, and sell more units. Today, there's a demand to have products and services delivered on a continual, subscription basis; to upgrade and access new innovations and features constantly. This is the end of ownership and it changes everything. Our vision is "The World Subscribed" where one day every company will be a part of the Subscription Economy (a phrase coined by our CEO, Tien Tzuo).

Zuora's leading, cloud-based software solution automates all subscription order-to-revenue operations in real-time for any business. Companies in any industry can launch new businesses, shift products to subscription, implement new pay-as-you-go pricing and packaging models, gain new insights into subscriber behavior, and disrupt market segments to gain competitive advantage.

Our growth story is only just beginning and we're seeking a proven Vice President, Customer Success to build, lead and scale a best-in-class global Customer Success team capable of supporting Zuora's growth ambitions: to be the company to whom the world's best companies turn to for driving the technology and business transformations necessary to win in the Subscription Economy.

In this highly visible position, you will leverage our strong foundation to help drive radical business transformation with an emphasis on consistency, predictability and efficiency that will ultimately translate our current leadership position into long-term, durable growth. As a key leader, you are relentlessly passionate about the success and experience of customers and know that the only way to achieve this is by developing and coaching a strong team. A team that creates strategic, lasting relationships with our most important clients from successful launches to identification of new use cases, and ongoing strategic support that increases satisfaction, maximizes the Zuora experience and ultimately drives revenue retention and growth. We win when our customers win.
