We know that more than 50% of web traffic is now coming from mobile, so our team is shaping the future of multi-channel commerce from a mobile-first perspective. Our Shopify mobile teams are working with world-class (aka 🔥) UX, design, and engineering teams to build and define the future of commerce. We are looking for senior Android developers who are passionate about Android and mobile at large. If you care about the best user experience, low crash counts and responsive applications, this is the team for you! We would love for you to join us to push boundaries as we craft the best retail experience for companies and their customers, the best SDKs for developers, and the best overall mobile experience for our merchants.

Here are some of the projects that this team has been championing lately 🚀

  • Conversational commerce is here. We built Shopkey, an iOS keyboard, to make it simpler for merchants to share products with customers using messaging apps
  • We created iOS and Android Buy SDKs that gives developers the tools they need to build a mobile app using native checkout processes like Apple Pay and Android Pay
  • We’ve worked with merchants to build native mobile apps that accompany their Shopify stores (the Stockroom app is an example of this)
  • Our mobile Garage team (the team responsible for our flash sale app, Frenzy) built QuickFit and Wake Alarm
  • We’re contributing to the newly rebuilt Shopify mobile app
  • We’ve got lots of other products in development but you’ll have to join our team to find out more!
