Having joined Shopify right after graduation, Jean-Philippe’s role has grown—he now manages a small team in his quest to constantly improve the purchasing experience for everyone. This means working on pre- and post-checkout, but most importantly, accessibility—with mobile, Facebook, Pinterest, Apple Pay, APIs for the visually impaired, and backwards-compatibility with legacy systems.
