About the role

Are you looking for an opportunity to work on planet-scale infrastructure? Do you want your work to impact thousands of developers and millions of customers? Do you genuinely enjoy tackling complex problems, and learning through experimentation? Shopify Production Engineering is all this and more.

The Observability team mission is to provide the best, most consistent logging, metrics and tracing experience to our internal users. You will work with product teams making sure they have access to the right telemetry data, but also defining how metrics, logs, and traces are gathered and used, you will also work with other production engineering teams to help them define alerting and monitoring for their own systems.

Tools of our trade

  • Splunk
  • Ruby, Rails
  • Go
  • Kubernetes
  • DataDog
  • StackDriver
  • OpenCensus
  • OpenTracing
  • Is some of this tech new to you? That’s OK! We know not everyone will come in fully familiar with this stack, and we provide support to learn on the job. This role falls under the banner of DevOps/Site Reliability Engineering, so you should be comfortable with writing code to solve interesting infrastructure problems, and working within Linux both as an operator and a developer.

Our teams are distributed both in-office in Canada (Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Waterloo) and remotely across Canada, the US, and Europe. We have a great Mobility team that tailors individual relocation and immigration packages to best support your move.

We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We’re looking forward to reading your application.

At Shopify, we are committed to building and fostering an environment where our employees feel included, valued, and heard. Our belief is that a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion enables us to truly make commerce better for everyone. We strongly encourage applications from Indigenous people, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.
