Engineering Lead - Trust & Security
22d ago

Trust and Security spans a rather broad scope at Shopify. Our teams build everything from account security for our 600K+ merchants, to tools which increase visibility into our networks, to automated reputation monitoring systems and that’s a very small subset of our work.

Regardless of our particular areas of focus, we all approach our work with two goals in mind : (1) building security with empathy, ensuring that our engineering teams can bring new ideas to life quickly without compromising safety and (2) safeguarding our merchants’ livelihoods.

We’re striving to build the most trustworthy commerce platform going, and need people leads and technical leads to join us in this mission.

Our team has done an awful lot already, and there’s still far more to do! We are looking for leads for a number of our teams, recognising that there isn’t a one-

size-fits-all version of leadership. Whether you enjoy leading a team of people, or prefer providing technical leadership in security engineering, we’d love to hear from you.

If you have done any of the following as a lead, consider applying :

  • building safeguards
  • securing products or infrastructure with code
  • developing security tooling
  • approaching engineering from a security standpoint
  • For context, we use a lot of different and new technologies here, and we don’t expect you to have used (or necessarily even heard of!) all of them.

    Some of the languages and tools we use here include :

  • Ruby on Rails, Go, Lua, Python
  • Docker, Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform
  • And here are a few links to give you an idea of the type of work our teams have done :

  • from SecTor 2017 on our use of GKE in production
  • for Shopify Partners regarding secure development practices
  • of our bug bounty program
  • on using Grafeas to secure our GCP infrastructure
  • on internal security in a default to open culture
  • We know that looking for a new role can be both exciting and time-consuming, and we truly appreciate your effort. Krystle is an actual real live person ( ) and is looking forward to learning more about you and your interest in joining our team.
