As Partner Marketing Manager for the UK and Ireland, you will be responsible for planning and executing world-class partner co-marketing initiatives to drive new merchants onto the platform. Shopify's extensive partner network includes technology platforms, eCommerce agencies, Shopify experts, and other organizations, so a deep understanding of the retail and technology landscape is hugely beneficial.

You will work closely with a team of regional Partner Managers to help identify and amplify the efforts of our high-performing partners. Outside of more traditional co-marketing, this will include educating our partner ecosystem, deploying tools and programs, and providing ideas and feedback to the business.

This role requires that you're an excellent marketer, able to nimbly identify and focus on priority initiatives. You must work closely with colleagues in marketing (regional and global teams), partnerships, sales, and merchant success.
