Remote Developer Jobs

Senior Frontend Software Engineer

Shopify - Americas
Full-time
Posted: 6 months ago

Shopify’s mission is to make commerce better for everyone. From building a new product feature for our commerce platform, to helping a merchant troubleshoot an issue over the phone, we want to empower our ecosystem through our work.

Having a unified vision, a north star, is vitally important to ensure that we are all headed in the same direction. No matter the size or experience, we want to power every merchant’s experience. This is why we're all here.

Shopify is now permanently remote and we're working towards a future that is digital by default. That location you see above? Consider it merely an example of hundreds of potential locations across North America where Shopify is hiring.

Job Description

Shopify is on a fast-moving mission to make the best products for merchants, buyers, and partners around the globe — and developers play a vital role in building that future. Here are just some of the stories from the engineering teams who build and scale Shopify.

What does Front End Development mean at Shopify?

Our Frontend Engineers collaborate closely with software engineering teams, designers, product managers, and marketers to not only build incredible merchant-facing products and marketing campaigns, but also developer-facing tools. You’ll use the latest web standards in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and modern technologies and frameworks like Typescript, React, GraphQL, Apollo and Ruby on Rails, to develop large front-end web applications and websites that scale and perform well on all devices. Front End Development exists across all of Shopify, from Product to Marketing, working closely with the teams that create performant experiences and communicate Shopify’s impact on commerce to a global audience. You may also collaborate with our Data and SEO teams, helping us make data informed decisions and driving additional new merchant acquisition. You might focus on creating thoughtful interfaces for our users, shaping our design language, and contributing to our shared component libraries in a maintainable and scalable way.

Qualifications

What you’ll do as a Senior Frontend Software Engineer at Shopify:

  • Collaborating with other designers and engineers
  • Creating beautiful and fast code that improves our code base in meaningful ways
  • Using test-driven development to write well-tested code
  • Fixing bugs fast and taking your time to solve hard problems well
  • Contributing back to the open source community
  • Experience and skills that are important for success in this role:
  • Experience using technologies and frameworks like (but not limited to) some of our most-used languages — Ruby on Rails, GraphQL, Java/JEE, Node.js, Javascript, React or React Native — is an asset, but not required. Don’t have experience with many of them? No problem — deep experience with any relevant transferrable technologies and willingness to learn our tech stack goes a long way.
  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things; Shopify changes fast, and we need the people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too
  • Experience with relational databases and SQL
  • Bonus Points: You’ve mentored teammates on new ways to deepen their technical craft
