Customers have changed. They’re looking for new ways to engage with businesses. Consumers today have a new set of expectations. They want outcomes, not ownership. Customization, not generalization. Constant improvement, not planned obsolescence.  


In the old world (let’s call it the Product Economy) it was all about things. Acquiring new customers, shipping commodities, billing for one-time transactions. But in today’s new era, it’s all about relationships. More and more customers are becoming subscribers because subscription experiences built around services meet consumers’ needs better than the static offerings or a single product.


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 and author of the best selling book Subscribed). 


As consumers wave goodbye to ownership, join us as we help companies win on their journey to usership!



Zuora is looking for a Senior Security Engineer with expertise in Application Security and DevSecOps to join our application security & security engineering team.

  • Shape the security of the overall Zuora software architecture and evangelize security within the R&D organization.
  • Mentor engineers and influence architects when required to ensure security is baked in.
  • Design and develop highly flexible common security components and APIs that enable the build of custom solutions that will be used across our company
  • Develop best practices to ensure software security, functionality, usability, reliability and availability.
  • Participate in design and code reviews as needed and provide appropriate recommendations.
  • Work with project teams to design prototypes to validate security designs and solutions.
  • Evaluate, test, implement, and support a variety of security tools
  • Build a relationship and communicate effectively with all stakeholders in the SDLC (e.g. Product, Engineering, Operations) 


What you’ll need to be successful:

  • 5+ years of designing, implementing, and securing applications and systems using one or more relevant technologies (see below)
  • Working knowledge of modern web technologies including cloud based APIs and protocols (REST, JSON), and relevant attacks and defenses.
  • Understanding of microservice architectures

  • Disciplined self-starter, able to be highly productive both working alone and in close collaboration within an agile development team
  • Solid interpersonal skills capable of building strong relationships across functions
