Engineering Lead, Shopify Partnerships

The Shopify Partnerships group is focussed 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, and Experts, to the home and dashboard for the Shopify Partner program, to various system integrations developed with strategic-partners such as Google, Uber and Intuit.

As an engineering lead for Shopify Partnerships, you’ll shape long-term product vision and own its implementation. You and your team will design and build data-driven technology to improve the lives of partners and merchants, both large and small. You’ll work with strategic partners throughout multiple industries to radically improve how Shopify merchants and partners run and grow their businesses. You’ll be responsible for growing the development team to enable Shopify Partnerships to reach its full potential.

Like all technical leaders at Shopify, you’ll manage product goals and execution, set technical direction and guide product strategy while collaborating closely with other leaders and executives. You’ll be hands on and directly contribute technically. Perhaps your biggest contributions will come from making everyone around you better as you grow and develop your team.

  • Any of: business analytics; full-text search; ranking or matching; ecommerce
  • Scaling web services, particularly those using and analyzing large amounts of data
  • Building innovative products and features integrated with existing systems
  • Recruiting outstanding engineers and building a world-class technical team

You’ll be working on things like:
