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). 

As consumers wave goodbye to ownership, join us as we help companies win on their journey to usership!



The Technical Documentation team at Zuora is pivotal in ensuring the success of our customers. Our team of experienced technical writers owns the end-to-end documentation lifecycle for our cloud-based software solution, and we’re looking for an excellent writer to join us as we expand the team into Chennai. You’re a great fit if you love figuring out how things work, have a passion for technology, and are able to turn complex ideas into simple instructions and conceptual content.

  • A strong technical background, such as a degree in Computer Science or a related subject
  • Knowledge of accounting, finance, billing, payments, or another business function
  • Experience using and documenting REST APIs
  • Experience using web authoring tools and content management systems
