About Zuora

We provide cloud-based software via subscription that enables any company in any industry to successfully launch, manage, and transform into a subscription business. Our vision is simple. We call it “The World Subscribed.” It’s the idea that one day every company will be a part of the Subscription Economy. Our mission is to enable all companies to be successful in the Subscription Economy.

Job Description

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’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 behavior, and disrupt market segments to gain competitive advantage. 

The Renewals Manager is responsible for owning and executing a portfolio of renewal contracts in an assigned territory. The ideal Renewal Manager is an experienced professional with a full understanding of the SaaS contracting space. They are responsible for minimizing financial attrition, locking in favorable terms with our clients, identifying growth and providing insights to the business that improve future outcomes. 

To be successful in this role, you will need to be driven, curious, intelligent and deeply passionate about renewals. You will remove barriers to customer retention and collaborate with the broader sales and customer success team to deliver a high value customer experience at time of renewal. This is a demanding role that requires strong priority management and interpersonal skills.
