About the role

As an  Engineering Program Manager within Trust Partnerships, you will set the security vision within our domain-specific teams, enabling a world-class team to deliver on the Shopify mission to “Make Commerce Better for Everyone”. You will develop a deep understanding of our tools, business processes and technology problems. You’ll work with stakeholders across our organisation to ensure that we build integrated systems that scale as we grow.

Resourcefulness is key - you’ll need to quickly gather context on our infrastructure, production systems, consumers and safeguards to help Shopify continue shipping secure, trustworthy and usable products.

  • Interrogate data to better inform decisions to ensure that they scale

  • Implementing tripwires to help our operational teams identify priorities

  • Work with multidisciplinary teams to strengthen our products and services throughout their lifecycle - before, during, and after they ship

  • Collaborate with highly motivated security professionals with a unique blend of skill sets and experience   

  • Define and build world leading technical security programs to maintain merchant trust in our platform 


Interested in one or all of these areas? Before applying, please note you should have experience with one or more of the following (don’t stress, we are not expecting experience in all of the following

  • Data storytelling and strategic thinking

  • Working closely with development teams and product managers
