About the role

The Dev Degree team at Shopify combines the best of traditional academic education, industry mentorship, and learning by doing, to engage and support undergraduate students in learning development skills. We need experienced instructors to develop and deliver technical education that will help our students thrive as software developer interns at Shopify.

You’ll work with a team of instructors to create and deliver courses that teach our students industry software development skills alongside their academic degree. The goal of our instructor team is to help the Dev Degree students learn the fundamental skills required to join development teams after their first year of university. With the team, you will evaluate student progress and provide regular feedback to students. As part of your role, you will build and maintain close relationships with the developer community at Shopify to understand the technologies, tools and techniques we use to build our world-class products. You’ll incorporate this knowledge into your courses to help our students make an impact quickly when they join our dev teams as interns.

If you care about computer science education, and would enjoy the challenge of bridging the gap between university studies and industry, you’re set. We would love for you to join us to push boundaries as we craft the best work-integrated learning education model for computer science.

You'll need to have:

  • Professional software development experience
  • Hands-on teaching experience in a technical field
  • Experience building and/or a passion for educational programs
  • A strong foundation in the core knowledge areas of computer science
  • Good spoken and written communication skills

It'd be great if you have:

  • Hands-on experience with any of: Ruby, Rails, Git, JavaScript, React
  • Experience teaching post-secondary or working with interns/co-op students
  • Project management experience

You'll be working on:

  • Creating and delivering learning experiences to the Dev Degree students
  • Maintaining close relationships with developers to understand the technologies, tools and techniques used at Shopify
  • Developing a solid understanding of the talent needs of our dev teams, and gathering strategic data to identify any gaps on the academic or training sides of the program to ensure those needs are met

We know that looking for a new role can be both exciting and time-consuming, and we truly appreciate your effort. Alison is an actual real live person ( 👋) and is looking forward to learning more about you through your application.

This posting will close on Friday July 19 at 3pm EDT.

At Shopify, we are committed to building and fostering an environment where our employees feel included, valued, and heard. Our belief is that a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion enables us to truly make commerce better for everyone. We strongly encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.
