Moving at our pace brings a lot of change, complexity, and ambiguity—and a little bit of chaos. Shopifolk thrive on that and are comfortable being uncomfortable. That means Shopify is not the right place for everyone.

Before you apply, consider if you can:

  • Care deeply about what you do and about making commerce better for everyone
  • Excel by seeking professional and personal hypergrowth
  • Keep up with an unrelenting pace (the week, not the quarter)
  • Be resilient and resourceful in face of ambiguity and thrive on (rather than endure) change
  • Bring critical thought and opinion
  • Embrace differences and disagreement to get shit done and move forward
  • Work digital-first for your daily work

About the role

Shopify’s Core Product Marketing UX team is seeking a Staff Marketing UX Designer to join our cross-discipline team of designers, developers, producers, and content designers. We’re a friendly, collaborative team that leaves ego at the door and focuses on creating high-quality experiences that elevate Shopify above all else.

As part of the Shopify Core Creative team, which is responsible for the creative and strategic marketing of Shopify’s Core product portfolio, this role encompasses leading the UX strategy and design of the Core product pages on Shopify.com.
