Shopify is on a fast-moving mission to make the best products for merchants, buyers, and partners around the globe - and engineers play a vital role in building that future. Here are just some of the stories from the engineering teams who build and scale Shopify.

Our Frontend Engineersin Marketing collaborate closely with designers, content strategists, product managers, data scientists, and our broader marketing teams to build incredible merchant and prospect-facing websites, campaigns, and developer-facing tools. You'll use the latest web standards in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and work with Ruby on Rails to develop websites and web applications that scale and perform well on all devices. Front End Development exists across all of Shopify, from Product to Marketing, working closely with the teams that create performant experiences and communicate Shopify's impact on commerce to a global audience. Collaborating with our Data, SEO, and Operations teams to make data-informed decisions, you'll work on large-scale, multi-language, and localized websites to help drive new merchant acquisition and bring Shopify to audiences around the world.


What you'll do as a Marketing-focused Senior Frontend Engineerat Shopify:
  • Create websites, landing pages, and web applications that are responsive, performant, and accessible that engage audiences through the use of animation and complex interactions.
  • Build reusable components with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for use across large-scale marketing properties and documenting them in our style guides.
  • Develop Content Management workflows and functionality that allows other teams to deploy content quickly across multiple geographies and languages.
  • Test-driven development to ensure our teams are writing well-tested code.
  • Learning the latest front end technologies and standards to ensure we are always using the best tools and techniques possible.
  • Being an advocate throughout the company for great UX.

Experience and skills that are important for success in this role:
  • Developing public-facing websites that perform well on all devices using modern languages and frameworks.
  • Experience using a broad array of technologies and frameworks like (but not limited to) Ruby on Rails, Java/JEE, Node.js, Javascript, React or React Native, GraphQL.Experience in any of these is an asset, but not required. Don't have experience with many of them? No problem - a deep understanding of any object-oriented language and willingness to learn our tech stack goes a long way. (Also: Check out our StackShare here.)
  • Building complex interactions in a performant way, with a high degree of polish.
  • Authoring resilient code that conforms with accessibility requirements and follows progressive enhancement methodologies.
  • Providing highly effective code reviews and peer mentorship.
  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things; Shopify changes fast, and we need the people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too.
  • Working with modern web stacks (transpilers, linters, build and CI tools, etc.).
  • Experience with relational databases and SQL.

It would be great if you had experience with:
  • You've mentored teammates on new ways to deepen their technical craft.
  • Working in an agency or creative studio environment delivering websites for a variety of clients.
  • Experimentation and evaluation methodologies to help inform decisions with real-world data.
  • A deep understanding of one or more specific client-side areas like animation, performance, or accessibility for example.
  • Building multi-language websites with complex internationalization and localization requirements.
