About the role

Shopify is on a fast-moving mission to make the best products for merchants, buyers, and partners around the globe. A big piece of our success on this fast-moving mission is our partner ecosystem. Shopify’s Platform is a multi-disciplinary team that helps merchants succeed in commerce through solutions developed by our partners. In particular, 3rd Party Application Developers create impactful apps on top of Shopify APIs, libraries and SDKs that solve the merchant problems we don’t yet solve ourselves.

Shopify’s App Platform Core builds and maintains the horizontal infrastructure used by all API developers. This team also provides the controls, levers, services and tools to ensure fair access to all Application Developers. We also drive extensibility and provide capabilities that enable applications to integrate deeply and smoothly into Shopify’s various surface areas.  

We’re looking for a Senior Development Manager to join our Platform team, focusing on the App Platform Core.

Requirements for the role

  • A strong technical foundation and a recent history of building and shipping innovative products and features as a software developer
  • Comfortable being hands on in the code, and helping your teams solve complex technical problems when the situation demands it
  • A proven track record of success in leading multiple software development teams
  • Commitment to and drive for quality, technical excellence and results
  • Passion for growing development teams and improving others
  • Highly beneficial if you have experience building and maintaining a development platform, publicly available through APIs, libraries and SDKs

What you'll work on

  • Build high quality, globally available, fault tolerant systems and products
  • Go deep into the platform and solve the hardest problems we have
  • Work through problems with your team, form an opinion and advocate for engineering-specific roadmap items
  • Collaborate with other Shopify leaders, executives and external partners to provide the best commerce experience for our merchants
  • Learn and grow constantly to feed your passion for self-improvement and make those around you better

We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We’re looking forward to reading your application!
