Engineering Lead - Risk 💸

Understanding a merchant’s future potential is critical to Shopify’s unfolding vision. Traditional commerce systems focus on risk, but Shopify cares about the full spectrum of value. The risk team at Shopify is responsible for building the systems that detect and prevent fraud for our merchants and their customers. They build automated systems to analyze customer behaviour  and the incoming orders as well as the financial transactions. We’re looking for an Engineering Lead to continue building and scaling this system. The Risk Team makes the product as resilient as possible, making it easy for merchants to make commerce better. We need to provide each merchant with the right services and the right level of support in order to help each of them realize their full potential.

How you will succeed

You’ll know you are leading this team in the right direction when they feel your impact, and when the team is more impactful with you being there. You will learn by doing, and teach by showing. You and your team will design and implement backend and infrastructure systems that use the full range of data available to Shopify to assess and rank merchants. You’ll be responsible for growing the development team to enable Shopify and merchants to reach their full potential. Perhaps your biggest contributions will come from making everyone around you better as you grow and develop your team.

The 🛠 ‘s you will use include: your team, Ruby on Rails and Python
