About the role

At Shopify, we’re focused on building products at scale and tools that help our merchants grow their businesses. Our Development team is shaping the future of commerce by enabling internal and external developers to integrate with all parts of Shopify.

In practice, our teams collectively:

• Deliver top notch fully functional retail experience

Expand the merchant’s reach to a wider purchasing audience through marketing technology and sales channels

Power our partner community to build rich applications for our merchants

Build out merchant management experiences to power autonomous labor

We are looking for a teammate that is excited to design and build new product features and core platform work to drive merchant and partner growth. It’s important that we are building our team for the long term.

What’s being built at Shopify’s offices:

A few things we want you to have:

  • Strong foundation of design principles, especially when it relates to platform development in the areas of API, data modelling, and scale.
  • A mindset for long-term solutions; you’ll need to assess system wide impacts that ensure the product evolves in the right way.
  • A passion and curiosity to constantly learn new things; Shopify changes fast, and we need people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too.
  • History of establishing great relationships with other teams.  
  • Affinity for mentorship; you’ll help developers grow to become senior contributors, and establish new mandates that will enable senior developers to take on technical leadership roles.
