About the role

At Shopify we have one of the largest front end architectures in the world, and our front-end development team works on making our client-side scalable, approachable, and an exceptional experience for hundreds of thousands of shop owners across the world. In addition to building and maintaining our HTML, CSS, and JavaScript architecture, web developers build both new product features and developer-facing tools. Their goal is to make the complex approachable for merchants, and to enable the rest of our R&D organization to build UI of the highest code quality and best user experience possible.

As the Senior Web Developer you'll not only work on improving our marketing platforms, but also on increasing the calibre over time. This is a long term vision founded on a number of practices — from encouraging individual ownership and deep learning, to congratulating team members when they’ve done a great job. We want to continue to build a talented team of Front-end Developers who will own their role, work hard to improve themselves and encourage others to do the same.

A few things you'll need to have:

  • Expertise in Javascript, HTML and CSS
  • Proficiency with at least one Javascript component framework/library (React, Vue, AngularJS or similar)
  • A strong knowledge of modern CSS3 (Flexbox, Grid)
  • Ability to deep dive into specific client-side areas, for example animations, performance and accessibility
  • A passion and curiosity to constantly learn new things; Shopify changes fast, and we need people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too
  • Experience with working in a cross-discipline environment with designers and other developers to produce and vet ideas though prototyping early concepts
  • Affinity for mentorship; you’ll help developers grow to become senior contributors, and establish new mandates that will enable senior developers to take on technical leadership roles
  • An attention to detail and a desire to build a pixel-perfect experience

It’d be nice if you had experience with:

  • Performance optimisation and any tooling to support auditing
  • Server-side development and MVC frameworks (e.g. Laravel, Rails, Django)
  • Typescript (or Flow)
  • GraphQL

Closing date: Monday, May 25 at 5:00 pm EDT

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 peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.
