Shopify is an e-commerce platform with the mission to make commerce better for everyone. It currently powers over 800,000 merchants in more than 175 different countries. Shopify Plus powers some of the world's largest and most innovative brands like Rebecca Minkoff, GE, KITH NYC, Budweiser, and Kylie Cosmetics. Shopify Plus provides high growth and high volume merchants an enterprise e-commerce solution without the traditional headaches.

Shopify's merchants and ecosystem partners are redefining commerce, raising the standard for how businesses of all sizes operate, market, and sell their products and services. Shopify's Checkout, used daily by millions of buyers across the world, is the critical intersection of customer data, preferences, and buyer intent. A key area of investment and focus, Shopify's Checkout is becoming even more reliable, scalable, and customizable, giving merchants and ecosystem partners alike more opportunity for growth and success.

As a Product Marketing lead for Checkout, you'll build and tell the story of what makes Shopify's Checkout the top choice of merchants and our ecosystem partners, and ensure this narrative gets into the hands of those who need it most. You'll work closely with best-in-their-field product, UX, marketing, and communications teams to inform product decisions and create marketing strategies that lead to more merchants getting more use out of the tools at their disposal.

Your insight into the worlds of commerce and marketing, along with your deep empathy for our merchants, will help you tell the most compelling story about how Shopify's Checkout can help merchants and partners succeed.
