About the role

We’re looking for a Senior Front End Development to help grow Exchange, Shopify’s newly launched marketplace for buying and selling businesses. We're in a unique position for a marketplace as we already have strong demand and supply. This has allowed us to find product-market fit and Exchange is now one of the fastest growing products at Shopify. Our long term goal is to be the global marketplace for entrepreneurs to buy and sell businesses and business-related assets.

About the Team

We ship, test, and iterate quickly. The environment is fast-paced, but we value taking the time to learn from our mistakes as much as our successes. Our team owns the entire problem and solution, and operates as a startup within Shopify. Everyone has the opportunity to give suggestions and make their voice heard.

You'll need:

  • Experience developing React components and managing data-flow using libraries like Redux, Apollo, GraphQL, etc.
  • Extensive experience with a web development framework — NodeJS or Ruby on Rails is preferred, but not required
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and/or startup experience
  • A commitment and drive for quality, excellence, and results
  • Experience building and scaling user focused web applications

You'll focus on:

  • Building front end components that integrates into a Rails application
  • Creating experiences that are responsive, performant, and accessible
  • Working directly with product owner and collaborating with the team shaping the future of Exchange
  • Working with the leadership team to define the roadmap and how you’ll get there
  • Working on making our client-side code scalable and approachable
  • Building an extraordinary experience for buyers and sellers
  • Advocating for UX and finding solutions that allow the team to deliver value to users sooner
