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.

They build automated systems to analyze customer behaviour  and the incoming orders as well as the financial transactions. We’re looking for a Senior Engineer 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 be successful.

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. Your team will be responsible for growing the development team to enable Shopify and merchants to reach their full potential.

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