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).




The Product Management team at Zuora are in the frontlines, intimately working with Zuora customers and users to identify product opportunities, functional requirements and business processes. We translate this data into product strategy, roadmap and detailed requirements that are hyper focused on business impact and customer value. Product Managers evangelize with internal and external stakeholders for buy-in and partner with engineering to bring their product to life. Additionally, Product Managers will ensure success of their product by working with their Product Marketing counterparts to drive pricing strategy, product positioning, promotional planning, product launches and product adoption strategies.




As a Technical Product Manager on the Platform Product Management team, your focus will be to drive the future of Zuora’s query, language and data platform services. You will be responsible for Zuora’s proprietary query languages, AQuA and ZOQL, and help design and lead Zuora’s next generation query language, powered byGraphQL. Additionally, you will have a key understanding of Zuora’s customer needs for data search, data archiving, data purging and data scrubbing needs. With this understanding, you will build core data management services, and ensure these services can be easily adopted across Zuora’s product portfolio for unified platform experiences. 

What You’ll Achieve

  • Lead product management of platform services focused on large scale search processing, query language, high availability, performance, and scalability.
  • Design data management solutions that help Zuora’s customers meet their local data residency and compliance requirements.
  • Help Zuora customer’s unlock data access velocity by building tiered data storage and access solutions.
  • Empower other product and engineering teams inside of Zuora to easily integrate their products with your data management solutions.
  • Drive a consistent and reliable track record of shipping products that deliver measurable results for quality, adoption, customer value, and profitability across a well-planned blend of small, medium, and large product releases
  • Establish and lead cross functional partnerships with support teams, infrastructure teams, customer success organizations, marketing, and sales to drive organizational alignment around requirements and design
  • Evangelize your product and vision across our company and industry and obsess over delivering the value customers expect from our products and services
  • Foster and contribute to a positive and dynamic product team culture that is ambitious, creative, and always learning and improving how we build product


What You’ll Need To Be Successful

  • 5+ years of technical product management experience – preferably within enterprise SaaS.
  • Familiarity with cloud data services, batch/stream data processing, and metadata management
  • Experience with enterprise search user experiences for business applications.
  • Deep understanding and experience with enterprise APIs; SOAP, REST and/or GraphQL.

  • Self-starter with bias toward action, shipping frequently, and hands-on willingness to do whatever it takes from an execution perspective
  • Deep customer empathy and ability to articulate customer problems clearly
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment and influence product, engineering, sales, and services teams distributed around the world (US, EMEA, APAC)
  • Excellent written and verbal interpersonal skills with ability to influence executive-level discussions as well as functional / technical deep dives
