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 creates cloud-based software on a subscription basis that enables any company in any industry to successfully launch, manage, and transform into a subscription business.

The Tax Manager is a proven professional that is responsible for the Company’s tax compliance, tax planning, accounting for income taxes and corporate structuring projects.

The Tax Manager collaborates with many parts of the organization and is the leader for the Company’s tax initiatives.  This position will help develop best practices in terms of the tax provision, transfer pricing, international tax structure and compliance,  VAT, HST, GST, sales and use tax as well as miscellaneous business tax compliance.  Success in this role is dependent on leadership, communication, organization/people development, hands-on approach, process improvement, strategic execution and ability to perform in a rapidly changing business environment.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
