Shopify's User Experience team is focused on enabling people to make commerce better at a global scale. With over 400 designers and content designers partnering closely with product managers, product researchers and developers working across the company, this team has a special role in building understanding and empathy for merchants. We believe in testing, iteration, and in giving people the room to experiment and grow. The UX team at Shopify has the mission to make commerce better for everyone… everywhere!

Shopify's user experience team is focused on enabling people to make commerce better at a global scale. This team plays a special role in building understanding and empathy for our merchants. The content design team is a close-knit group of crafters who work across the company to create clear, concise content that makes our products work better.

We're looking for a senior level content designer to plan and create interface content for Shopify products, and contribute to our team's skills and growth. This position requires deep understanding of the role language plays in the UX design process. This isn't a marketing or social media role.

We're always on the lookout for people who are excited to work on hard problems at a global scale in a friendly, collaborative environment. If this sounds familiar, we'd love to hear from you.

Responsibilities
  • Contributing to the cultivation and evolution of a coherent editorial voice, tone and feel across the entire Shopify platform
  • Acting as thought leader on the development of new features, and continuously improving what we have today
  • Applying strategic thinking and facilitative leadership skills to conceptualize ideas and communicate them compellingly to internal stakeholders, partners and customers
  • Building positive, collaborative relationships with product design, development, marketing, and the broader UX team, as well as continuously "raising the bar" as an effective leader of positive change
  • Being an active mentor for content crafters, leading design critiques, reviews, and quarterly planning
  • Defining and implementing information architecture and navigation systems across complex products


Qualifications

  • Strong knowledge of the end to end iterative UX content design process, in a product-focused environment
  • Deep experience driving and applying user-centered content design processes while working with cross-functional teams including product design, development and user research
  • Experience writing and structuring language to respond to audience needs.
  • Demonstrated ability to create, implement, and maintain content standards across an organization
  • Excellent communication and storytelling skills; you have the ability to help your team and stakeholders understand the "why" behind your design rationale
  • Empathy and advocacy for merchants and their buyers, in all areas of our work


We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We are looking forward to reading your application.

Closing date:Friday, October 22at 11:59PM EDT. Successful candidates can expect to hear back from us by Monday, October 25at 5 pm EDT.
