You’ll work across disciplines and are excited about building human-centred experiences.

Don’t have experience with many of them? No problem — deep experience with any object-oriented language and willingness to learn our tech stack goes a long way

  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things; Shop and Shopify changes fast, and we need the people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too

  • Experience with working in a cross-discipline environment with designers and other engineers to produce and vet ideas through prototyping early concepts
