Company Description

About Shopify

Opportunity is not evenly distributed. Shopify puts independence within reach for anyone with a dream to start a business. Since 2006, we’ve grown to over 10,000 employees and generated over $500 billion in sales for millions of merchants in 175 countries. Every 28 seconds, an entrepreneur on Shopify makes their first sale.

This is life-defining work that directly impacts people’s lives as much as it transforms your own. This is putting the power of the few in the hands of the many, is a future with more voices rather than fewer, and is creating more choices instead of an elite option.

About you

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 — and embrace differences and disagreement to get shit done and move forward
  • Work digital-first for your daily work

Job Description

As a Demo Engineer you will work closely with Sales, Product, Engineering and prospective enterprise brands to provide critical support in the closure of new business.

  • Develop collateral to help scale a rapidly growing sales organization
  • Help to close deals and drive new revenue
  • Play a critical role in defining our technical sales strategy
  • Communicate feedback to Product teams to help influence the roadmap of the most adopted commerce solution on the planet
  • Learn transferable skills that will benefit a career in Product, Engineering, Sales and more

Here’s what you can expect:

  • A collaborative, creative environment where we value experimentation and learning
  • Autonomy. We don’t believe in micro-management
  • Opportunity to grow and learn from with each new challenge you tackle
  • A culture that values authenticity, openness and diversity


You’ll need to have:

  • BS/BA in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, or similar experience
  • Experience with React-based frameworks and GraphQL queries, mutations, and objects
  • Practical working knowledge of TypeScript
  • Passion for front-end styling, with a strong eye for design and attention to detail using CSS/SCSS or Tailwind CSS
  • Experience with Git version control and platforms like GitHub
  • Strong technical aptitude and a consistent record of execution

  • Strong organizational and project management skills with the ability to multitask and re-prioritize
  • Excellent verbal, presentation, and written communication skills
  • Desire to work and thrive in a rapidly changing environment
  • Passion for learning

It’d be great if you have experience in these areas:

  • Experience with eCommerce website development, including product and collections pages, checkout flows, navigation menus and eCommerce funnel optimization
  • Experience building, launching, and maintaining Shopify Plus stores, and familiarity with the admin system
  • Knowledge of Liquid templating or React-based frameworks for building custom Shopify storefronts
  • Experience with Shopify Hydrogen/Oxygen, Storefront API, object/properties, AJAX API, and Metafields
