Senior Marketing Designer, Partner Growth

Ottawa

As a senior marketing designer at Shopify you’ll work for the leading cloud-based, multi-channel commerce platform used by small fashion boutiques, global brands, and everything in between. Shopify currently powers over 500,000 businesses in approximately 175 countries and thousands of users will see your work everyday – a tough but incredibly rewarding responsibility.

The role

The Partner Growth team focuses on growing the number of partners to support the growth of merchants. You’ll work directly with a diverse team of Marketing Specialists, Community Managers, Content Strategists, and Front-End Developers. They are focussed on experimenting with new mediums to grow the number of partners in the Shopify Partner Program, and creating compelling content to help partners succeed.

You’ll work closely with marketing teams to build strategy and launch campaigns to increase traffic and conversions, producing content for both online and print/interactive experiences. Working on multiple types of projects, for various audiences, you’ll have to be good at managing your time and priorities as well as resourceful and flexible. 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, focused on creating high-quality experiences that grow Shopify above everything else.

You'll be working on:

  • Evolving the visual identity of Shopify projects
  • Championing brand standards and guidelines for Shopify
  • Mentoring junior designers on the team
  • Championing projects to ensure that they are progressing at a high quality
  • Improving the effectiveness of the entire team through new tools and best practices

You'll need to have:

  • Familiarity with a data informed approach to design. You have experience optimizing campaigns for various objectives, using tools and resources needed to measure the success of design decisions (A/B testing tools, Google Analytics, etc.). You are motivated by results.
  • The ability to prioritize simultaneous project requests from various teams by asking great questions to clarify, refine, and understand the scope of the problem you’re solving.
  • The ability to adjust quickly to shifting approaches, situations, and priorities.
  • A scrappy, resourceful approach to projects — you’re proactive and great at self assigning tasks.
  • A passion for unpacking and solving complex problems where there are many dependencies and interactions with different systems or areas.
  • 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).
  • Exceptional UI abilities shown in an extensive portfolio of projects.
