Senior Product Designer, Shopify Plus

We’re looking for a Senior Designer to join our team in Waterloo, ON and focus on bringing design thinking and skill sets in pursuit of better serving our merchants.
You will work on a product that empowers them to run their businesses and push the boundaries of commerce. You should be comfortable driving the user experience for your product area -- identifying problems, collaborating with the other UX disciplines, prototyping solutions and shipping features. You’ll have to be good at managing your time, adjusting quickly to shifting approaches, situations, and priorities.

We also believe that experience comes in many forms, that many skills are transferable, and that passion goes a long way. If your experience is thisclose to what we’re looking for, consider applying. We know that diversity of thought makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team and encourage everyone to apply.

What do you bring to the table?

  • A background in owning and executing against the user experience strategy for a feature set
  • A deep understanding of the end to end iterative UX process, including personas, scenarios, wireframing, and high fidelity visuals
  • An understanding that amazing experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, content strategists, and other disciplines
  • A soft spot for the end user. You should advocate for them in all areas of your work
  • Experience using prototyping tools (Sketch), as well as knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • A real passion for solving design problems while wearing multiple hats and owning all facets of design (e.g. strategy, art direction, interaction design and research)
  • Extraordinary UI abilities that can be demonstrated through current project pieces
  • A desire to mentor other designers, leading by example with your keen eye for good design, and attention to detail

What will you work on?

  • Finding ways to champion the needs of and building empathy for our fast-growing, high volume merchants across both Shopify Plus and Shopify
  • Representing our merchants in discussions of new products and overall product strategy
  • Advocating for good user experience across our platform
  • Identifying the best UX methods and tools to use depending on the project constraints
  • Shipping high fidelity designs of new features and quickly prototyping solutions to visual and interaction problems
  • Contributing to our growing design system of patterns in an effort to bridge a coherent look and feel across the Shopify experience
  • Sharing and reviewing your designs based on peer feedback, user research, testing, and merchant feedback
  • Prioritizing simultaneous deadlines across multiple teams and coordinating the efforts across UX disciplines

Here's how to apply

  • If you’re interested in helping us shape the future of commerce, we'd love to have you submit your application. Please include a few samples of your work: portfolio, wireframes, UX flows, publications, or whatever represents what you do best.
