Android Developer

Shopify, Ottawa

Commerce platform for small and medium-sized businesses

We’re growing our Android teams at Shopify. These teams build for Shopify Mobile and Shopify POS. Shopify's POS is the fastest and easiest way for our merchants to accept payments on any device. Shopify Mobile allows our merchants to manage their stores on-the-go with real-time notifications, access to their dashboard, and order management from their smartphone.

We want to build a mobile platform that stands the test of time, and our Android apps are an important piece of that. We want to make the best product and we want it to have direct impact on our merchants’ entrepreneurial journey. We believe it is key to create great experiences for Shopify customers.

You’ll be doing things like:

  • Writing powerful and eloquent code that extends the functionality and improves the quality of Shopify’s mobile applications
  • Collaborating with a cross-functional team to define, develop, test, and ship features that impact mobile clients and backend servers
  • Translating designs and wireframes into technical patterns and practices

You’ll need to have:

  • Passion for mobile software development
  • In-depth knowledge of the Android SDK, the open-source Android ecosystem, and the libraries available for common tasks
  • Knowledge of Google’s Android user-interface design principles, patterns, and best practices

It’d be nice if you had:

  • Professional experience in Android app development
  • Do you have a published Android app? One in progress? Show us!
  • Experience writing backend code on a web application
  • iOS development experience

We know that diversity of thought makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team and encourage everyone to apply.
