Technical Accounting Manager

Redwood City, CA, 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 is seeking a financial professional with a strong accounting and reporting background. The ideal candidate will have experience with a broad set of accounting topics applicable to a mid-sized public company, and experience in preparing and reviewing financial statements, quarterly and annual SEC filings, analyzing and assembling complex financial information, and writing technical accounting memos. Reporting to the Senior Manager, Technical Accounting, the candidate will help to provide guidance on technical accounting matters and will support the earnings and SEC filing process. The candidate will also work closely with our external auditors at KPMG. The ideal candidate is a self-starter, works well independently and is able to adapt to new systems and processes. This is an individual contributor who excels at collaborating with a broad set of leaders across finance, accounting, legal, engineering and corporate operations. . 


This is a hybrid position, so you’ll work both remotely and in the office. We encourage you to come to the office for company functions and team events and to build strong working relationships with other local team members, but we don’t require being in the office a set number of days per week.
