About the role
We’re looking for Front End Developers to work with multiple disciplines to evolve the Polaris design system. In this role, you will be responsible for healthy design systems, frontend code architecture, development of tools and infrastructure.
Developers at Shopify have the creative freedom to make a real difference in the world of commerce, the support to bring your authentic self to work, and the chance to work with the best in the business. As one of them, you will leverage your skills and experience to solve tough problems with performant code.
This role can be based anywhere in Singapore, Japan, India or Australia, and will be working closely with our R&D teams in APAC and Canada. Shopify is now permanently remote and working towards a future that is digital by design. Learn more about what this can mean for you.
5+ years of software front-end developing experience.
Development experience in Payment companies is a plus.
A product-minded developer who cares about the "Why" - Why build this feature? How will we measure impact?
A generalist (or a T-shaped developer) excited by problems that require a mix of frontend and backend skills and unblocking anything that stands in the way of success.
A strong foundation of design principles, especially when it relates to platform development in the areas of API, data modelling, and scale
Experience in writing automated tests as part of your development workflow (even better if you do it TDD)
A passion for efficiency and collaboration, with a history of establishing great relationships with other teams, across offices, and time zones
The 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
Bonus Points: You’ve mentored teammates on new ways to deepen their technical craft
