this is a contract to hire position


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’s engineering team is focused on building and delivering world class SaaS Products and Services for our customers. We’re also tackling some really cool technical infrastructure and platform capabilities, efforts that have previously resulted in multiple technology patents. We run primarily on a distributed, microservices architecture transformed from our original monolithic codebase allowing for easy customization and extension of our products by our entire engineering group, as well as customers and partners. We have made a strong commitment to building services and tools that make it easy (and fun) for developers to build and deploy their own services, including a centralized system for provisioning and maintaining Jenkins build servers as well as an innovative command-line tool that leverages Terraform and AWS APIs to provide a simple, consistent way to provision and deploy infrastructure and services to AWS. In addition, we don’t just want to build quickly, we want to build quality. We have a commitment to scalability and quality as a part of our “Engineering DNA”.


Site Reliability Engineering at Zuora zeros in on enablement of all our engineering teams to autonomously operate their services. The mission is to enable the NoOps creative thought process and assist with expertise in areas such as no-touch delivery, automation & remediation. We are accelerating down the path towards a micro service & API-driven world. 

THE OPPORTUNITY (AKA: Why you want this role over any other out there)

  • Look at every task that requires a person to execute it, strip it down & automate it
  • Configure monitoring and alerting to ensure integrity, reliability & the performance that all the dinosaurs thought couldn’t be done

  • 3+ years of experience
