About Shopify

At Shopify, the opportunity to shape how commerce works all over the world is in our hands. We have a huge playground to work with, and we’ve already proven that we can move faster than anyone else. But right now we’re only part of the way there. To continue building the future of commerce, we need your help.

About the position

We are on the cusp of a skills revolution that is being driven by technology. That’s why we partnered academics and industry experts to develop a different kind of education model.

The Computing and UX education team at Shopify are stewards for technical education initiatives that form this model. The team engages and supports people learning technical skills from a young age and continuing throughout their careers. These programs combine the best of traditional education, industry mentorship, and learning by doing in the workplace. The nature of our work necessitates creation of outstanding courses and learning experiences.

As a Technical Program Manager (TPM) focused on this technology area, you create, maintain and curate a roadmap of courses and learning experiences to help people effectively and efficiently learn web technologies.

This position requires building and maintaining close relationships with top web developers at Shopify, and around the world. Success requires you to efficiently analyze technologies, tools, and techniques used by developers, and become proficient yourself. Your colleagues are education experts, and you’ll work closely with them to craft amazing work-integrated learning experiences. Often, you will embed as a developer yourself for periods of time, within the teams we serve, to keep your skills sharp and fully understand the educational needs across Shopify.

We need you to demonstrate exceptional collaboration skills, you pull people in and get them excited to contribute to your projects.

We are looking for a Web TPM with the following specific skills:

  • Strong web skills (5+ years experience):
  • front end - HTML, CSS, Javascript
  • and/or

  • back end web technologies - Ruby, Rails, MySQL

There are other aspects to this role. We feel the following will help you thrive:

  • BONUS: Previous teaching experience
  • BONUS: Previous work with open source software projects
  • BONUS: Previous work with interns or co-op students

This job posting is for 2 positions. While we need both, we will also consider candidates who have strong specialization for either front end or back end.
