Shopify has redefined commerce. We've raised the standard for how businesses of all sizes operate, market, and sell their products and services. With millions of merchants in more than 175 different countries, we continue to grow while looking for innovative ways to impact the market.

To help our merchants sell wherever their customers spend time online, we have developed integrations with the highest traffic online destinations or marketplaces, including Facebook, Google, TikTok, Pinterest, eBay, Walmart Marketplace and more.

The Marketplace Partnership PMM Lead will own the GTM and growth of this portfolio of partner integrations with the goal of helping merchants reach and sell to more buyers. This is a people leadership role with several direct reports.

We are looking for a bright, passionate product marketer who also has experience with partnerships and co-marketing. You'll need to have a growth mindset, have deep empathy for merchants and customers, and be excited to roll up your sleeves and dig for the solution to a complex problem.

    • Help influence the products we're building through deep market analysis, competitive research and merchant/partner feedback. Collaborate with product teams to optimize product elements that boost user engagement and alleviate product issues and gaps.
    • Run A/B tests to optimize user messaging strategies and quantitatively test hypotheses pertaining to acquisition and engagement strategies
    • Identify KPIs, set targets, and analyze the results of product launches and growth efforts against those targets
  • Communicate effectively and often to ensure that all stakeholders are aligned


  • Extensive experience in product marketing, partner marketing, product or a customer consulting role
  • The ability to thrive in uncertainty, resolve ambiguity and think quickly on your feet
  • Experience driving bringing new products to market and driving product growth
  • Experience leading a team
  • Experience working with an in-house creative team
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills, while being able to stay focused on the big picture and pay attention to details
