  • Building fine-grained access control systems to safeguard the usage of personal data
  • Participating in discussions with other teams about how to protect  personal data in new products and services

You will need to have:

  • Experience with languages and frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Go
  • Strong software development background with software design patterns, code review, and automated testing
  • An interest in protecting users’ privacy rights on a constantly changing platform
  • Curiosity and passion for learning new things; Shopify changes fast, and we need the people who work here to be able to adapt and learn quickly
