Role Description

Shopify is looking for a Senior Development Manager to join our payments and hardware team. In this role, you’ll be leading a team of engineers committed to building Shopify’s custom hardware product suite, which enables our merchants to better integrate their online store with their physical presence. The best candidate for this role is someone who’s comfortable managing multiple teams and has a background in out-of-the-box device software. You should consider yourself to be a technical people lead who can dive into system design and can fully own and communicate the architectural roadmap for these products. Shopify is growing, a lot! So we’ll also be leaning on this role to support recruiting and onboarding efforts to double this team over the course of the year.

About Shopify

Shopify is a platform built for independent business owners of all shapes and sizes to start, sell, market and manage their businesses online, in-store, and everywhere between. With a comprehensive set of industry-leading tools, Shopify has helped over 1.7 million people in 175 countries take control of where they take their businesses. Shopify has worked with brands like Unilever, Gymshark, Allbirds and countless others that started with nothing but an idea, a passion, or a purpose.

Company Culture

Shopify-wide Culture Culture is the sum of our beliefs and behaviours. It’s how people act when they think nobody’s watching. Every single one of us influences the environment here through our everyday actions and interactions. Therefore, we all own culture.

We embrace being multicultural and celebrate the differences that occur naturally within teams, departments, locations, and projects. We see this diversity as a strength.

We might not agree with each other all the time, but the best solutions come out of the agreements we strike when we look at common problems through different perspectives. Regardless of our backgrounds, locations, or teams, our mission and values link us together. We are here to make commerce better for everyone, so that anyone, anywhere can create independence for themselves, their families, and their communities. We do this through a focus on collective impact, continuous learning, thriving on change, and building for the longterm. They are the shared principles we all agree on and live by.

Engineering Culture Engineering has always been a leading discipline at Shopify. Our CEO is a programmer and along with our President, have both committed code. Engineering teams play a critical role in influencing and driving our approach to product development.

We develop excellence in our craft through practice and growth. We practice our skills by solving challenging problems at scale. We grow by working with and learning from other talented developers in our community and embracing new technologies and languages. Pull out of your lane and tackle front-end, back-end, infrastructure, data, or trust and security initiatives. These moves are not just allowed, they’re encouraged, and they enable you to build your breadth, depth, and ability to solve hard problems.

Our Developers have high trust and autonomy - our infrastructure is built so you can ship fast and ship early. Everyone has the ability to improve Shopify, and you won’t be limited to a prescribed set of tasks as a developer.
