We are looking for individuals who can use their communication and technical skills to support our merchants, both in helping them directly with their requests, and by creating education and material for them to reference.  Our team adapts to anything that is thrown their way, and we are constantly collaborating to solve issues that affect themes with other teams and departments.

  • Helping merchants customize their Online Store
  • Identifying bugs and theme improvements for our Themes
  • Develop ways to better equip our Support teams for any Theme related questions
  • Improve documentation to reduce Theme related support debt
  • Working with PSN, Sustaining Engineering, Themes, Online Store and Theme Partner Manager teams to resolve Theme bugs and improve Product

  • Know HTML and CSS like the back of your hand
  • Have experience creating/modifying themes or web templates (e.g.: Wordpress, Tumblr, Liquid)

  • Familiarity with the Liquid templating language
  • Experience using CSS preprocessors (e.g.: SCSS, LESS) and/or build tools (e.g.: Grunt, Gulp)

  • Knowledge of version control systems like Git or SVN
  • Detail oriented, open and ongoing communication

  • Takes ownership over problems and collaborates on solutions

Working at Shopify is unique, and we’d like our application process to reflect that! If you want to be the next Shopify Theme Specialist, please attach a detailed cover letter outlining why you think you’d have a positive impact on our team and providing links to any technical or design portfolios you may have. In your letter, please also indicate which region you’re applying from. 
In addition, please complete one of the following skill testing tasks:

Create a Shopify development store and install one of our free themes. Modify that free theme to do something the theme doesn’t normally do. Explain why a merchant may want that modification, how it would help them grow their business, and how you approached making the changes in the code files. 


Create a one-page, responsive website that sells yourself and your skills to Shopify. This is a free-form opportunity to show off your technical skills in whatever way you choose, so make sure to include examples of your HTML/CSS/jQuery abilities and your eye for contemporary design trends.
