OUR VISION: THE WORLD. SUBSCRIBED.

For the last 100 years, companies have operated primarily under a product-centric business model, where the goal was to make, ship, and sell more units. Today, there’s a demand to have products and services delivered on a continual, subscription basis; to upgrade and access new innovations and features constantly. This is the end of ownership and it changes everything. 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).

Zuora’s leading, cloud-based software solution automates all subscription order-to-revenue operations in real-time for any business. Companies in any industry can launch new businesses, shift products to subscription, implement new pay-as-you-go pricing and packaging models, gain new insights into subscriber behaviour, and disrupt market segments to gain competitive advantage.

Our growth story is only just beginning and our Solution Consulting team will help us accelerate it! We are seeking a highly collaborative, outcome-oriented Solution Consulting leader to help us build out this new function globally.
