Choose your own software development adventure...

We realize that this is a bit of an unusual title to find on a careers page, but we wanted to try something a little different. When you've only been in your career a few short years, it can be tricky finding or knowing exactly what it is that you want to work on. Searching for and finding a team with great mentors and the opportunity to learn and grow your skills can seem like a job in and of itself!

Shopify is the world’s fastest growing commerce platform and we have no plans to slow down! We’re on a mission to scale our platform while simultaneously improving performance, reliability, and resiliency. To do this, we need the help of dedicated, methodical, and versatile developers!

We've listed some of our team who are looking to grow - take a gander and if any of these teams seem particularly interesting, we'd love to hear from you!

Kernel 🍿
Kernel exists to steward and sustainably evolve the core of Shopify’s product. We dive deep into our most central and complicated systems, and come back out with a sustainable, future-ready platform to continue building on.

Merchandising 👕👖
Merchandising is the work a merchant does to decide what products they are going to sell, what price they will sell them for, how they will look to customers, what other products they be grouped with, where they will sell them, and when they will be sold.
Partnerships 👯
Partnerships is focused on building solutions to help start, simplify, and scale the businesses of all partners and merchants working with the Shopify platform. We build, scale and operate systems in all shapes and sizes. From mission-critical merchant-facing services like the App Store, Theme Store to the home and dashboard for the Shopify Partner program, to various system integrations developed with strategic-partners such as Google, Uber and Intuit.

Home 🏡
Home is the first area a merchant sees after logging into their Shopify Store and is a super impactful part of the Shopify platform for each and every merchant. The home team builds the cards powered by our data infrastructure that give merchants insights into how to build a successful business. Home also builds the platform for other teams to hook their features and insights into the home feed.

The 🛠 ‘s you will use include: Ruby on Rails, MySQL, Bugsnag, Splunk, DataDog and more!
