About the role

At Shopify, we build products that help entrepreneurs around the world to start and grow their businesses. We’re the world’s fastest growing commerce platform and we have no plans of slowing down!

We’re looking for Web Development Managers to lead developers in building new and innovative products that will allow merchants to deliver great shopping experiences. As a leader, you will leverage your established technical know-how and commitment to individual growth to build high performance teams that will be successful in delivering world-class products. You will set and hold high standards on your teams and create conditions for each individual to be successful with short term and long term goals. You will strengthen relationships across the entire company and leverage these relationships as needed to unblock teams and deliver amazing products to our merchants.

These teams are looking for leaders:

  • Online: The online store is the largest sales channel at Shopify and the primary channel for most of our merchants. It’s at the heart of how merchants and buyers think about Shopify, where we must continue creating value at scale, meeting modern buyer expectations, and being the best solution for merchants new and experienced alike.
  • Checkout: Every day millions of buyers use Shopify’s checkout platform to purchase products from our over 800,000 merchants. People want to buy wherever they are and however they want. Checkout is part of it all: online, on mobile, in-store, on marketplaces, on social media, and in VR/AR. The Web Development Manager will lead a team of developers, and work closely with Staff Developers, to set new standards for our checkout experience, including incorporating React into the tech stack. 

To be successful in this role you will need:

  • A strong technical foundation that is as good, or better, than our Senior Developers
  • A background writing web applications using technologies like Javascript, CSS, HTML, React (experience with GraphQL or Typescript is a plus)
  • A proven track record of growing a team of developers and improving others
  • A passion and drive for building products that solve problems for users
  • A 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

What you'll work on:

  • Build high quality, globally available, fault tolerant systems and products
  • Work through problems with your team, roll up your sleeves, form an opinion and advocate for engineering-specific roadmap items
  • Work with product, UX and other disciplines to discover the best solutions for our merchants
  • Be a technical influencer across the company
  • Grow the team both through internal development and helping with external hiring

We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We’re looking forward to reading your application!

Closing date: Thursday, October 31 at 12pm 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.
