This job is no longer accepting applications.


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)


We refer to ourselves as the “ZEO Success” Partner team because our employees aka “ZEOs" are our most important asset. We partner closely with leaders across our organization to align people and strategy. We are trusted partners, coaches and influencers as we evolve and enable our teams to thrive and deliver great results.


The Director, HR Business Partner will partner with key leaders and their groups to design and execute the people strategy aligned to our unique and powerful ZEO culture as we accelerate our transformation and scale our business. You will play a key role in shaping the future of our Finance, M&A, VP of Strategy & Operations, IT and Data Science, and our GC, Legal and Workplace Resources team.
