About the team

Shopify is building the operating system for commerce. Early on, we made the decision to build a developer ecosystem to help merchants meet their unique needs by installing apps or hiring services.

  • Represent Shopify's developer products in person and online by presenting at conferences, writing technical tutorials, publishing articles and videos
  • Build inspiring demos, sample apps, and continuously improve the developer experience of our APIs and SDKs
  • Grow our various developer communities by creating trusting relationships with our developers who are creating solutions on top of the platform you are shaping
  • Establish credibility with developers and developer communities as a thought leader in the commerce space

  • A fundamental understanding of web development and APIs
  • Proficiency in JavaScript, React, Ruby, Node, or Python
  • Proficiency in SQL Technical background that enables collaboration with engineering teams
  • Strong writing skills and technical writing experience
  • Adept at communicating technically complicated topics simply and elegantly
  • A deep passion and empathy for developers, and the curiosity to leave no stone unturned in your investigation of niche use-cases
  • Confident and comfortable presenting to different types of audiences, large and small
  • Great project management skills, and the ability to switch contexts rapidly

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

Our belief is that a strong commitment to diversity & inclusion enables us to truly make commerce better for everyone. We encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities, and/or people with intersectional identities. Please take a look at our Sustainability Reports to learn more about Shopify's commitments to our communities, and our planet.

At Shopify, we understand that experience comes in many forms. We're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team - so if your experience is this close to what we're looking for, please consider applying.
