About the role

At Shopify, we build products that help entrepreneurs around the world to start and grow their businesses. We’re the world’s fastest growing commerce platform and we have no plans of slowing down! 

Every day thousands of new hopeful entrepreneurs sign up for Shopify without much or any business experience. The Start product line exists to help them become successful. The team is focused on building unique user experience for them to smoothly onboard to the Shopify Platform and make the most of it.

To continue our incredible rate of growth, we need a strong Web Development Manager to help bring our Start product line to the next level.

Web Development Managers at Shopify help our development team members realize their true potential. As one of them, you will leverage your established technical know-how and commitment to individual growth to build high performance teams that will be successful in delivering world-class products. You will set and hold high standards on your teams and create conditions for each individual to be successful with short term and long term goals. You will strengthen relationships across the entire company and leverage these relationships as needed to unblock teams and deliver amazing products to our merchants.

To be successful in this role you will need:

  • A strong technical foundation that is as good, or better, than our Senior Developers
  • A background writing web applications using technologies like Javascript, CSS, HTML, React
  • A passion and proven track record of growing development teams and improving others
  • A 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
  • Experience building onboarding pages for a product is a plus

What you'll work on:

  • Build high quality, globally available, fault tolerant systems and products
  • Work through problems with your team, roll up your sleeves, form an opinion and advocate for engineering-specific roadmap items
  • Work with product, UX and other disciplines to discover the best solutions for our merchants
  • Be a technical influencer across the company
  • Grow the team both through internal development and helping with external hiring

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!

Closing date: Friday, September 19 at 5pm 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 people, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.
