At Shopify Toronto, we’ve focused on building products and tools that helped our merchants grow their businesses. Our Platform Development team is shaping the future of commerce by allowing internal and external developers to integrate with all parts of Shopify.
In practice, this means that the Platform Development team is rebuilding APIs and creating new APIs using GraphQL to provide a more unified developer experience. We are building the underlying platform that allows third-party developers to build things like apps and other integrations that make merchants more successful. The potential impact of this team’s work is huge - there are entire businesses built around developing apps and integrations with Shopify’s platform. The more successful our platform development team is, the more successful our partners and merchants are. 🚀
