What is Subscribed and what is the Subscribed Hackathon?

Zuora makes a subscription management platform for subscription businesses like Box, Nest, Spotify, The Economist, GoPro, and more. Our annual Subscribed conference (April 12-13) brings together thought leaders from all industries to share and learn how business models are being reinvented.


This year, in addition to being joined by astronaut Scott Kelly who just returned from his year in space, we’re also hosting an on-site hackathon and we’d like to invite you to compete! The Subscribed Hackathon is a chance for developers and entrepreneurs like yourself to bring a new subscription business idea to life. Whether you offer cloud storage, helicopters as a service, we want to hear from you!


What are Hackathon finalists expected to build? 

Finalists will build unique and engaging experiences on the Zuora platform using our APIs. These experiences can include anything from building a unique e-commerce storefront and checkout process to a self-service subscription portal to a unique payment submission process. Anything that leverages the power of the Zuora platform and Zuora APIs.
