Mission

Orb is on an ambitious mission to provide every business with the infrastructure to unlock their revenue. Best-in class businesses find ways to effectively align their monetization to product usage—whether that's through seats, consumption, feature limits, or usage-based tiers. Orb brings that opportunity to every software company.

We are reimagining billing and invoicing for this era of hybrid pricing in software. Billing is no longer just a finance problem, but also a high-stakes engineering observability problem that customers urgently need solved. At Orb, we take a developer-first, data infrastructure approach to this problem. We make it possible for companies to fully automate their current billing process, and to evolve their monetization strategy over time.

Orb supports the end-to-end workflow for revenue: developers love our product’s extensibility and intuitive API, product managers become empowered to iterate on pricing and packaging much faster, finance teams get fine-grained reporting to facilitate revenue recognition, and customer-facing teams benefit from the transparency Orb brings to the customer relationship.

About Us

Our founding team has experience from companies like Stripe, Asana, Plaid, Cloudflare, and Autodesk. We’ve raised $19.1 million in funding from top-tier investors like Menlo Ventures, Greylock, base case, South Park Commons, and Scribble, as well as founders and operators from companies like Vercel, Plaid, Datadog, Notion, Asana, HubSpot, and more.

Working at Orb

When you meet our team, you’ll see we’re a group of dedicated and kind individuals who care deeply about solving what is one of the most mission-critical problems for any business.

Every one of us has outsized impact on the business, our product, and our customers—we hold ourselves to a standard of excellence, with the empowerment to take risks and the judgment to focus our time on maximizing leverage.

We are not a culture of long hours, but we approach our work with intensity and a sense of urgency. With a product like ours, minutes matter: we can help accelerate other businesses tremendously if we’re focused on building quickly while maintaining critical attention to detail. When we’re ‘on’, we’re on; we work hard, then we go home.

We will focus on setting you up for success, with the right expectations and enablement. We coach on outcomes, not inputs or style. We show up for each other with kindness, which earns us the ability to have difficult conversations with trust by default and openness to feedback.

As a growing organization, we value in-person collaboration. We see it as a way to achieve our mission faster, in an environment of rapid ideation, strong alignment, and that energy that makes work more fun.

Role & Impact

We’re looking for Solution Architects who are passionate about solving complex business challenges through innovative technical solutions.

  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and adapt to changing priorities.

  • Previous Sales Methodology training (e. g. MEDDIC, SPIN, Challenger Sales) is a plus.

  • Not afraid to take calculated risks and innovate while balancing pragmatism.

  • Ability to act as a thought leader by sharing best practices through forums such as Webinars, Orb blogs, whitepapers, reference architectures, and public-speaking events.
