It has come to our attention that there may be people posing as members of Zuora’s recruiting and human resources team online. These persons have been offering fraudulent employment opportunities to applicants and often asking for sensitive personal and financial information.

Sr. Technical Program Manager

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India


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).




We are looking for individuals to join a team of talented Technical Program Managers (TPM’s ) who can leverage their expertise in technology and system design to work across product managers and engineering teams to orchestrate the design and delivery of business objectives. 




In this key leadership role as a Technical Program Manager, you will act as the evangelist for enabling our product features, collaborating with Product Managers and Engineering leaders.. You will take charge using your technical leadership, and program management skills to drive execution with high quality for these key initiatives. You will apply expert judgment to keep teams focused, remove impediments and deliver success in a fast-paced environment. You have a strong desire to drive predictability in outcomes, transparency along the way and the ability to build a delivery-focused, highly collaborative culture within the teams.

  • Draw from your hands-on experience in the relevant technology requested 
  • Use critical design thinking to focus on delivery and results 
  • Define key program metrics and communicate outcomes, blockers and program performance.
  • Work with management and other leaders to continually identify and implement team process improvements 
  • Provide “go to” leadership, clarity and visibility to the entire org
  • Perform project evaluations and transform lessons learned to actionable improvements.
  • Track program delivery against defined definition of done for delivery milestones
    • Drive artifact and checkpoint reviews for complete delivery and Go-To-Market Readiness
    • Manage outcomes required for successful business viability metrics for cost governance, revenue targets, service availability and supportability, customer self service, etc.



Success in the role requires you to support and enable the success of your team, develop stellar cross-functional relationships at multiple levels of the organization, and demonstrate strong technical skills and business acumen. You should have a strong sense of personal accountability and be excited by the challenge of working in an Agile and innovative environment. You should also have a consistent record of success working in an Agile environment. As a TPM, you will work to improve practices to encourage more predictable delivery and facilitate Agile ceremonies and planning of releases.
