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).
Zuora provides cloud-based software on a subscription basis that enables any company in any industry to successfully launch, manage, and transform into a subscription business. Our growth story is only just beginning and our Marketing organization is pivotal in sustaining our rapid growth across the globe. We’re looking for a highly collaborative, hands-on Director of Product Marketing with prior experience delivering innovative SaaS business applications and solutions to help take Zuora RevPro’s positioning and market message to the next level.
As the Director of Product Marketing for Zuora RevPro product line, you’ll work alongside our product, marketing and sales teams to drive the strategy for key go-to-market solutions; taking complex ideas and communicating them in a simple, elegant way. You’ll engage in deep dialog with customers, and hone in on the compelling reasons why their business would benefit from our solutions. You’ll leverage your creative soul to develop powerful sales pitches and compelling marketing assets that showcase our leading subscription management products. And perhaps best of all, you’ll learn a great deal about the craft of product marketing along the way.
