About the role

Our team is building a mission critical system. We are looking for developers to join us who have a strong interest in working at our scale. We want to build a system that continues to allow anyone working in development at Shopify to come in, and make an impact quickly. Our team is reimagining how we can write business software at Shopify which will allow us to build financially critical operations to invoice and collect payment for services provided to merchants and pay Shopify partners.

Shopify’s Billing System and Financial Operations Engineering team builds and maintains the software for billing merchants and paying Shopify Partners.  Financially critical operations such as invoicing for monthly subscription fees, computing taxes and paying application developers are responsibilities of the software developed by the team.  As a key component of Shopify’s core platform, the system needs to be reliable and accurate while still providing the flexibility for adding new features to allow the Shopify platform to collect revenue or grow Shopify’s business.  We’re looking for a senior developer to help us architect, build, scale and automate all of the processes in the financial pipeline from merchant user experience to financial data reconciliation and reporting.
