Designer, Growth Experiments

As a Designer on Shopify's Growth team, you’ll work directly with a diverse team of Engineers, Front-End Developers, Marketing Specialists, and Growth Hackers. The team is primarily focussed on growing the number of customers on Shopify by bringing more traffic to Shopify sites and experimenting to improve conversion.

You’ll be working on multiple types of projects, for varied audiences, and with unique conversion goals in mind. So much of what the Growth R&D team does relies on data to validate its impact. You’ll be working with Data & Analytics regularly to inform and improve your work; you should be familiar with designing experiments and used to unpacking insights from the data team.

Shopify currently powers over 325,000 businesses in approximately 150 countries; thousands of users will see your work everyday – a tough but incredibly rewarding responsibility.

You'll be working on:

  • Designing end to end advertising experiences
  • Landing pages for SEO
  • Building tools to help entrepreneurs
  • Microsites aimed at target audiences
  • Email marketing campaigns
  • International sites

You'll need to have:

  • A data-informed approach to design - you’ve used tools and resources needed to measure success of design decisions (A/B testing tools, Google Analytics, etc.)
  • A scrappy, resourceful approach to projects - you’re proactive and great at self assigning tasks.
  • A distaste for lorem ipsum - caring about getting the copy right needs to be a priority.
  • A soft spot for the end user - advocating for them in all areas of your work is core to what you do
  • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, content strategists, and other disciplines
  • A passion for solving design problems while wearing multiple hats and owning all facets of design (content strategy, wireframing, art direction, and interaction design)
  • Proficiency with design & prototyping tools (Sketch, Photoshop, etc), as well as knowledge of HTML and CSS

If you're interested in this position please click "Apply Now" and include a link to your portfolio/Dribbble/Behance in the links section. Please make out your cover letter to Sophia!

Experience comes in many forms, many skills are transferable, and passion goes a long way. If your experience is this close to what we’re looking for, consider applying. We know that diversity of thought makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team and encourage everyone to apply.
