Shopify Developer

You’ll be responsible for helping to maintain and develop new sites, pages, and features for global brands across multiple Shopify storefronts, working as a part of a small product team with passionate designers and producers.

As a Developer focusing on web development for Shopify, you should ideally have experience in a couple different languages or frameworks. You should be able to see the bigger picture behind design patterns and architecture, and know how to engineer complex behaviors and components–especially within the Shopify ecosystem. You should be able to proactively spot typical technical and creative issues before they come up based on your previous experiences. You can work comfortably with other team members from various departments. We expect a thorough understanding of web technologies, and of course the Shopify platform. Experience working with Shopify’s Liquid templating language is required, and experience using the storefront API and developing for international stores is a plus.
