Engineering Lead - Shopify Payments 💳💰

In 2013, we launched Shopify Payments as a way to help merchants save both time and money by cutting out all the frustrations that went into setting up a payment gateway. Our merchants were not interested in speaking with banks and payment processors, they just wanted to focus on what they do best - selling their products. Through our partnerships, we offer a powerful, intuitive, and full-featured payments solution within Shopify across many major markets, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and Ireland. We’re focused on improving our merchants’ experience by removing many of the complexities around accepting payments on the storefront, and making it easier to manage merchants’💰 . In the few short years since its launch, Shopify Payments has processed several billion dollars and has been adopted by 80% of our merchants.

We’re looking for someone to lead the team into new payments markets and beyond, through the universe of charges, transfers, disputes and caffeine.
