About the team

When you hear billing, chances are you might think of a dusty corner office with several decade old file cabinets. Klaviyo’s Billing & Monetization team is not that! We oversee the payments and enforcement infrastructure that allow hundreds of thousands of companies to send billions of emails and text messages on BFCM weekend. As Klaviyo continues to scale, our team will play an instrumental role in capturing revenue (both domestic and international), building features that help users understand where their dollar spend goes, complying with regulatory requirements, facilitating internationalization and assisting in all pricing related changes at Klaviyo.

  • Previous experience working with external or internal auditors or finance teams to verify how data sources tie to financial statements
  • Experience leading projects across multiple teams or quarters

Nice to have:

  • Track record of working on high visibility projects with requirements you have to actively seek out. Desire to be judged on measurable outcomes and change process to achieve those outcomes
  • Passion for understanding and experimenting with the levers that drive business outcomes, including pricing, presentation, vendor relationships and more
  • Experience talking to customers and listening deeply to their wants and needs
