Billborn started his managerial career in 1989, at age 17, by coaching several youth teams at local club Rågsveds IF. He was the youth coach of Stefan Ishizaki, who later became a Swedish international.
In 1997, Billborn moved to IF Brommapojkarna where he worked in different roles in the organisation. He was the academy coach for players John Guidetti, Albin Ekdal, Ludwig Augustinsson and Kristoffer Nordfeldt – who all four went on to play for the Swedish national team and in major European leagues in their professional careers.
Before the start of the 2014 season, Billborn was promoted to head coach at Brommapojkarna. The club finished 16th and last in the Allsvenskan table, only claiming 12 points in 30 games. Billborn was sacked in November and left the club.
On 10 January 2018, Billborn took over as manager of Hammarby IF in Allsvenskan, signing a three year contract. He led the club to a surprising 4th position in the table during his debut season, after being placed first in the league mid-season.
In 2019, Hammarby started the league play in a mediocre fashion, but made a strong finish to the season (with eight straight wins during between match day 22 and 30) and ultimately finished 3rd in Allsvenskan. This meant that the club qualified for the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League, their first continental competition in over ten years.
On 5 January 2020, Billborn signed a new three-year contract with Hammarby.
