Redwood City, CA, United States, Remote - United States

Company Overview

At Zuora, we do Modern Business. We’re helping people subscribe to new ways of doing business that are better for people, companies and ultimately the planet. It’s an approach resulting from the shift to the Subscription Economy that puts customers first by building recurring relationships instead of one-time product sales and focuses on sustainable growth. Through our leading expertise and multi-product suite, we are transforming all industries and working with the world’s most innovative companies to monetize new business models, nurture subscriber relationships and optimize their digital experiences.


The Team & Role

Zuora’s Deal Desk team sits within Finance and serves as deal advisors to the Sales organization. Our mission is to inspire and influence better strategic decisions to drive long-term booking growth while ensuring compliance, efficiency, and scalability. 




As a Deal Desk Analyst, you will work cross-functionally as part of the Deal Desk team, collaborating with Sales, Finance, and Legal, to ensure efficient quoting, contracting, and document review with a focus on high-value/ strategic deals. Teamwork and collaboration are critical to the success of the right candidate.  Zuora seeks a customer-centric attitude and appreciation for working collaboratively in a very fast-paced environment. The desired candidate, preferably with 4+ years of experience in the Deal Desk at a SaaS company, will thrive in environments where uncertainty is common and is skilled in bridging business and sales needs.  


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

The Deal Desk team is an integral piece of Quote-to-Cash at Zuora and the Zuora-on-Zuora (ZoZ) program. Because Zuora strives to be its first and best customer, Deal Desk is positioned to influence enhancements to Zuora’s own suite of products. Your reach will not be limited to company growth via bookings; you will be able to touch the Zuora customer experience via product growth!
