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, roll up your sleeves, form an opinion and advocate for engineering-specific roadmap items
  • Be a technical influencer across the company
  • Design and build innovative features that are driven by web scale data
  • Collaborate with other Shopify leaders, executives and external partners to provide the best commerce experience for our merchants
