Shopify has focused the last decade on solving complex problems for entrepreneurs by making commerce seamless and accessible. Now, we want to do the same for customers.
As a result of social distancing and stay-at-home measures, customers have become more reliant on online ordering than ever before as it becomes more challenging to stay connected to the brands they love.
With Shop, we have set out to reimagine the online shopping experience. From personalized recommendations to live order tracking, Shop offers visibility, personalized experiences, and peace of mind in one convenient place. By looking at the common pain points in the customer’s shopping journey today and developing specific features like local business discovery, Shop will help both our merchants and their customers develop more meaningful relationships and connections along the way.
Our team operates like a start-up within an established company. The leadership team decides on key themes and members of our team get assigned to them. Then, it's up to the team to solve each problem, which means they work closely with our UX and PMs. As independent teams, we have the flexibility to make our own decisions and work autonomously. And at the end of each week, we share and demo our work with the rest of the team.
The Shop team is looking for a dedicated and experienced staff software developer to join a new team. You’ll lead projects of significant scope, complexity and will take responsibility in the vision, strategy and execution, meaning limitless opportunities for you to turn your ideas into reality. As a staff software developer you’re the glue that holds UX, Design and Engineering together, working naturally with disciplines. You will mentor both junior and senior developers and continuously strive to move our tech forward and advocate best practices.

Shopify is now permanently remote and working towards a future that is digital by default. Learn more about what this can mean for you.
