Marketing Designer

As a Designer on the Growth R&D 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 and experimenting to improve conversion.

As a designer on the team you’ll be bringing design thinking and skill sets in pursuit of these goals. You’ll be working on multiple types of projects, for varied audiences, and with unique conversion goals in mind. You’ll have to be good at managing your time and priorities as well as resourceful and flexible.

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.

You'll be working on:

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)
  • A love for all things brand -- how it can best be expressed online and how to evolve and build it over time.
  • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, content strategists, and other disciplines
  • The desire to drive creative through an end to end UX process, including research, ideation, iteration, and validation
  • 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
