Senior Marketing Designer

Toronto

Designers are an integral part of defining how we represent Shopify to the world. As a Designer on the Marketing team, you’ll work directly with a diverse team of Brand Strategists, Marketing Specialists, Content Strategists and Front-End Developers to grow the number of customers using Shopify and the reach of the Shopify brand.

You'll work to improve how we position the Shopify platform to our customers and create compelling content that resonates with our audiences. As a Senior Designer, you’ll be expected to tackle multiple problems at once and coach more junior designers in their craft.

We are a friendly, collaborative team, who leave their ego at the door, focussed on creating high-quality experiences that grow Shopify above everything else.

You'll be working with:

  • Product Marketing
  • Communications
  • Content Marketing
  • Social Events & Offline Marketing
  • PR

So you can:

  • Evolve the visual identity of Shopify marketing projects
  • Champion brand standards and guidelines for Shopify
  • Art Direct photo/video content alongside our Shopify Studio team
  • Mentor junior designers on the team
  • Champion projects to ensure that they are progressing at a high quality
  • Improve the effectiveness of the entire team through new tools and best practices

You'll need to have:

  • 5+ years of design experience
  • A passion for unpacking and solving complex problems
  • A soft spot for the end user - advocating for them in all areas of your work is core to what you do
  • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, content strategists, and other disciplines
  • The desire to drive creative through an end to end UX process, including research, ideation, iteration, and validation
  • A distaste for lorem ipsum -- caring about getting the copy right needs to be a priority.
  • Proficiency with design & prototyping tools (Sketch, Photoshop, etc), as well as knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • A passion for solving design problems while wearing multiple hats and owning all facets of design (content strategy, wireframing, art direction, and interaction design)
  • Knowledge and familiarity with a data informed approach to design -- you’ve used tools and resources needed to measure success of design decisions (A/B testing tools, Google Analytics, etc.)
