  • Write well-tested code using a blend of Unit and E2E testing frameworks and strategies.

  • Be an advocate for a world-class user experience for our merchants. 

  • Fixing bugs fast but taking your time to solve hard problems well.

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

 

What does onboarding/support look like?

  • All developers will go through Engineering Onboarding where you will get the opportunity to learn React Native 

  • Own Your Own Development - we will reimburse you for books, courses & other learning materials needed to learn React Native!

  • Mentorship through your teammates or participation in our Dev Mentorship Program 

  • We have some awesome mobile-specific internal communities/guilds where you can network and learn from other great mobile developers!
